As someone who has stayed at this hotel before, what do you have to tell others about it and what have you been told?

The name Pointe Noire or Black Spot was derived from a black boulder that Portuguese sailors saw on the headland in 1484. The French began to make contracts with the locals, the Loangos, it was called Ponta Negra and became the capital of the region in the French Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). In 1950 it had 20,000 inhabitants, but the civil war of 1997-1999 led to a huge increase in the population of Brazzaville and the surrounding provinces, bringing the population to over 1 million. In the 1990s, after the end of the civil wars in 1997 and 1999, Pointe Noire became the "capital" of the Central Congo, while BraZAVille was called the "capital" (AEF).

Soon it became necessary to build a railway to connect it with the Atlantic coast, so it was created in 1910 and the French built the railway. French companies were allowed to exploit the natural resources of the region such as gold, diamonds, copper, iron, gold and copper ore and allowed their exploitation.

In 1942, the port of Pointe Noire received the first ships of the city and made it an AEF seaport, but it was not the terminus of the Congo Ocean Railway as originally intended, although the station is a remarkable building. The authorities chose Ponta Negra instead of Libreville because the rapids made it impossible to cross the Congolese river to Brazzaville and the terminal terminals of the coastal railway at this point allowed the construction of a deep-sea port. In 1942, potash was mined in the Pointe Noire, which led to the construction of quays (which are now closed to the public).

The Pointe Noire is the venue for a meeting between the Congolese government and the mining companies in Brazzaville. The meeting took place on 18 December 2012 with a collective of 10 Congolese ministries and invited mining companies to discuss future development opportunities.
