I booked to stay at the hotel as I needed to be close to the CBD. The hotel is in the center of the CBD in a very busy area. My biggest challenge was the parking. It was not very convenient and having to sign in and out to take my car was just silly. The rooms are oldish and...

Hotel Protea is centrally located in the business district of Lusaka. Staff is friendly and supportive. I did not had chance to taste restaurant. One suggestion for hotel management and in fact to Marriott group to mention email address of its hotel on the respective hotel website as currently these details are not available on its website.

This is a very good hotel with a great service located in the heart of Lusaka. The rooms are very smart and spacious and the housekeeping is just excellent. The prices are also quite reasonable. However this place could improve as they do not offer room service facilities as well as much entertainment facilities. The menu is also not diverse...

Stayed here during the recent African Development Bank Meetings. The city hotels were fully booked during this week and hence this booking. The hotel is on a busy congested street. Difficult to get to and leave. This is a basic hotel - perhaps two star. Small rooms with poor natural light. Bed was comfortable. Good wifi in African standards. Very...

I stayed at this hotel from March 5th, 2016. It is really a budget hotel for guests seeking low cost, decent accommodation in the central business district. Accessibility during peak times can be slightly annoying because of heavy traffic along and around Cairo Road. Otherwise most other times driving to and away from the hotel is not a problem.
