"Very nice, clean hotel. Very pleasant helpful staf"
It was my first time in Lusaka, and the reviews of this hotel were very good. They are very much deserved. This is a very good business hotel (and I met some businessmen who came several times a month from South-Africa, and always stayed at the Protea-Lusaka, as they considered it to be the best value in Lusaka).
The hotel is very clean, and every precaution is taken to assure our safety and well-being. The staff is very efficient, and very friendly. The Wi-Fi was perfect - rapid and dependable, with very access through our cell phones and portable computers.
The breakfast buffet is superb, and Chef Peter is there to prepare your omelet, pretty much any way you want it. Fruit is abundant, and several types of yogurt, breads and jams are offered. Service is efficient. I also had supper at the hotel, and the food was good and well-prepared.
The hotel is contiguous to a plaza which offers many shops and restaurants. We have sampled several of these, and the food and ambiance were very good throughout. There is an upscale market on Sundays within the plaza, which is worthwhile.
The Desk also arranged for transportation to the Protea Safari Lodge, about 1 hour away from the Lusaka Protea by taxi; I recommend it if you have the time (I did both the standard tour and Quad tour in the same day).
I truly enjoyed my stay at the Protea-Lusaka, and there is no doubt that I will return there should I return to Lusaka.
But a few small niggles: 1. Shower pipe was dancing around when used, and will break soon. 2. Window and mosquito grid could not close in the bathroom. 3. Shower doors also not level and came off their hinges. But in general a good place to stay.
