10 Top-Rated Hotels in Lusaka, Lusaka Province

August 12, 2022 Esmeralda Fenner

Lusaka, the capital and largest city in Zambia, can be a confusing and chaotic place for visitors not familiar with its unplanned neighborhoods and streets. Busy stores and shopping centers line Cairo Road and the surrounding area. Nearby covered markets sell anything from souvenir figurines to spare engine parts. Just south of Lusaka is the Munda Wanga Environmental Park, which features botanic gardens, a wildlife park and sanctuary, picnic areas, swimming pools, and a relaxing terrace bar.

Friendly lodge in a private park

Reviewed By 19marieclaire49

I have just spent 2 days at Lilayi Lodge and can highly recommend it. It is set in a private park with several antelopes, giraffes, zebras, etc. roaming freely in the park. The lodge is surrounded by trees in a very relaxing environment with a swimming pool. The staff are friendly, professional and helpful and the food was very good. Accommodation is very comfortable with a small heater for cold nights.

Absolutely wonderful stay at a hotel staffed by warm and friendly people who greeted us by name and made sure we had everything we needed. Blown away by Henry's efforts to return a lost item following departure that involved a bus to Livingstone and two members of his family. Definitely will return there!

Bad experience ….

Reviewed By Guy Y

This is not my first time at Radisson Blu Lusaka, unfortunately it was the worst experience so far. They are usually good, but not this time! On the room front, there was something wrong with the doors on the 3rd floor where I was.. all the doors were making a huge slamming sound, making you jump every time someone on the floor was going in or out of his room… Showers were not evacuating water properly, resulting in water overflowing … The bathtub is there just for decoration, not operational. Wanted to iron my shirt before my meeting, iron in the room was all blackened from the bottom … requested another … leaking, water and electricity not such a good match…. Went for dinner.. food was quite good, when it was served, and that was with over 45 min delay… Asked for a late check-out… declined.. (they accepted a late check-out at 16:00 @50% of the normal rate ??‍♂️ This is saddening… they just lost a good customer… not staying there next time I visit….

Value for money?

Reviewed By daled626

Guess I can't expect much more than this for the price paid. Yes, centrally located and right at a Mall is about the only "Pro" this hotel gets from me I'm afraid. WiFi is shocking in the rooms and only available in foyers, reception and restaurant area. I've been moved from the 5th to 4th and now onto the 3rd floor. Disconnects happen all the time and having to move around to be able to connect. Bar section has limited to no local beers. Breakfasts are bland and variety runs out in no time. Constantly having to ask for new/clean cups and utensils. Restaurant is really needed here!

At Ciêla Resort and Spa, we're immersing ourselves in ours. We are a beautifully considered continuation of a landscape that stretches from verdant countryside, to majestic plain, to beating-sun horizon and back again.

A pleasant not exciting , short stay

Reviewed By Kelly Y

If you’re a golfer , this place is awesome ! Very little to do except sit by the poolside . The buffet breakfast is good but the buffet dinners are bland and somewhat bleek . Best value for money and food is served at the Brewery on-site restaurant which is the only place with atmosphere and vibe . Overall , the hotel is clean ; it’s pleasant , the rooms are average but I’m glad we chose to only spend 2 nights .
