Clearly some of the people giving this place "great" reviews are more used to youth hostels than hotels. Let's face it, Kinshasa is not a hotel lover's Mecca, and really the only place worth staying is Le Voyageur (although perhaps the new Fleuve is worth a look).
Faden House has some pluses; it's located near the diplomatic quarter convenient for a safe, pleasant walk along the river. The Grand Hotel is a block away, which despite being a bit of a dump, is good for people watching. And the staff at Faden are very kind and helpful. Also, they have include a respectable breakfast in the price of the room.
Sadly the rooms themselves are small and rather dingy, the wifi is hopeless, the TV reception is almost non-existent, and the whole place is generally dull.More
