Welcome to Mambo City's 5Star Salsa Congress
Having a Great Time Connecting Music and Dance

Established 2003

The 5Star Congress​

Our Congress has been running at the same location since 2002. 

This continuity has helped to build the reputation of one of the most reliable and consistent events on the salsa calendar.  

You know you will be looked after when you arrive at the Radisson Blu Hotel, meet the staff and see our 5* Reasons To Go.

The Venue

Award Winning Hotel

“Everything about this hotel goes above and beyond what you might expect from one so close to an airport. It’s easily the best offering in its category, sitting head and shoulders above the competition, providing a lesson in expert service, cuisine and design”, says Condé Nast Johansens. 

The 5Star Experience


Located just 5 mins from Heathrow Airport, this hotel is ideal for people travelling locally or from abroad. You can get to Central London from Heathrow Airport within 15 minutes using the Paddington Express Train.

Entertainment & Workshops

We have a line up of teachers and performers representing the dance styles of their countries, plus DJs and host “Rohan Brown” to keep you entertained over the weekend.


Minutes from Heathrow, this is an airport hotel like no other. Dramatic spaces, distinctive design and dedicated service come together in a location where London meets the world.

What The Dancers Say

"Back from MamboCity to London city. What an amazing Congress! Huge respect and thank you to Jean and Robert White for the event! It was of great quality (appreciated by Eddie Torres himself!). Thank you for bringing amazing teachers, performers and just beautiful people together and creating the atmosphere which felt so good! It was your 11th and my first but definitely not the last one! You gave us a boost for the whole year!"

"Thank you Jean White & Robert White for an excellent congress. Great atmosphere, some spectacular performances, fantastic workshops, fabulous dances and opportunities to hang out with good friends. So many special moments! But one of the main highlights for me was Albert Torres' workshop – and chatting with the man himself. His 'History of Salsa' seminar brought salsa / mambo to life & gave it a resonance that's too often lost on the dance floor in the pursuit of multiple turn patterns & styling. At times funny, sad, insightful but always entertaining, Albert's walk through history helped me understand why I fell in love with salsa /mambo. Muchas Gracias @Señor Torres - and, to Adolfo Indacochea for keeping the 'flame' alive."
