"Great Hotel for Price Conscious Business Travelers"
Take it from a 40+ year traveler in 39 countries, Mika Convention Center is well worth your visit and consideration on your next trip to Lusaka, Zambia. The staff is attentive, courteous, helpful, well equipped, trained, and highly motivated. The Center is still under construction, so if one is looking for a completely finished site, one would need to wait until July 2015. In spite of the fact that not all the little finishing touches are yet in place, the Mika Convention Center allowed me four days of productive work and restful relaxation. It is very quite (no barking dogs at night, loud parties, or street noise). My room was comfortable and had all the amenities I would expect of a business level type of lodging.
Separate shower and bath, hot and cold running water, though water pressure needs to be increased a bit. Rooms are spotless. Fresh sheets and towels everyday. Room keeping did a fantastic job each day cleaning every surface I touched! The in-room refrigerator was welcome on warm days to cool off the bottled water house keeping provided. In fact, as much bottled water as you care to drink is complimentary.
On a rainy day, the staff drove me to the reception area in the center golf cart. Guest rooms are about 200 meters from the reception area.
I was amazed at the few mosquitos throughout the property.
This was a good value for the price. A disclosure, I paid a promotional price through Expedia bundled with my air travel. I plan to return on my next trip.
