6/10 Good

In general, the stay was good. The views of the river are lovely and you can sometimes see hippos in the water. The food is good and the rooms are nice. However, due to a thunderstorm we were without power or running water from 12 hours one evening and I thought the response to this was pretty poor. No one from the hotel reached out to try and accommodate the power cut (and no candles/torched provided in the rooms) or even to explain what was happening (there was also. no back up generator). Also received no apology/compensation for having to spend the last evening/morning in the dark with no AC and no showers. .

The place had a rundown feel to it. The connecting sidewalks in poor repair. The food was mediochre. Bathrooms and rooms could stand an upgrade. Lobby was nice.

Protea Hotel Katima: A complete "bleh" experience
-Lack of staff; one person running the front desk with queue's of guests, phone ringing and other interruptions -Lack of knowledge about Marriott Rewards Elite program. Followup by hotel management post-stay was extremely slow and demonstrated lack of knowledge, commitment and making things right -Door handle to room 1 falling apart; required security to assist entering/exiting -Absolute lack of energy or excitement across the property; from the dim lit restaurant; closed gift shop, frequently unattended bar, No Wi-Fi in the rooms at this property (to the degree it's false advertising that they say it's even offered) -No drive, no passion, no interest. The room itself was perfectly adequate; clean - thin sheets, working flat screen TV with minimal channels. Bathroom could use some deep cleaning but the basics were attended to. I've stayed here three times for business now. Truly need to find an alternative. It never improves at Protea Hotel by Marriott, Zambezi Lodge.

Great location, stay away from work
Hotel is of a great location, however the facility is not as advertised. No wifi in room although hotel information states the wifi in room, it is only available at the reception/dining area. However the area was locked out after 10pm. It is not very wise for business stay.

Superb location
Was just an overnight stop so we didn't linger. Hotel did NOT recognize any pre-payment via Hotels.com and made us pay again. Still awaiting Hotels.com response to my earlier notification of this problem. I need an $87 refund for the amount I had to pay directly to the hotel.
