Excellent Room - Service Could Be a Bit Better
I had been to many other hotels in Lusaka but I was very pleasantly surprised by my room at Southern Sun. It was newly renovated and stylishly decorated. The breakfast selections were very good, complete with an omelette station, cappuccino selections, and 30+ food options. The only hesitation in my review was that when I reviewed at 3 AM in the morning, the hotel gave me a scare by saying they were completely booked even though I had booked and paid for my reservation in advance. I had even called to inform them that I'd be arriving via a late night international flight!

A solid choice in Lusaka
A good hotel to stay in for business, with a nice, comfortable meeting area downstairs. Rooms are basic and WiFi is hit and miss but the gym and pool are well maintained and the staff are helpful. I’ll definitely stay again

Business trip review.
Overall, it was a great stay. Enjoyed the central located pond with the birds. Did not get to use the gym or pool. Being in the tropic expect some bugs and mosquitoes in the common open areas. The restaurant and pub area are nice with great food but sometimes the servers are inattentive. Placement of the room air conditioners directly over the clothes wardrobe is weird. Rooms are clean and nice otherwise in typical SS standard. Wifi connection strength was not uniform and terrible in some rooms. Carpet clean but could do with some upgrades soon.
Jude, us5 night business trip
Poor 2,0
Never stay
The staff, especially the reception staff were terrible and uncomfortable. Always they forgot what they promised. I went and came back 3 times between the reception and the room to be able to enter the room at check in. Sometimes the room was not cleaned up when I came back to the hotel at evening but I didn't get any reaction after my calling to the reception. The room service mistook the order and they called me twice to confirm the order. Whichever you asked, their answer is slow and useless, and more, rude. I should explain the same thing 4 times and 5 times to another staff because of bad internal communication. They called me at 7 am on Sunday to ask when I will check out (ofcource I was asked the same question by another staff later). They don't have any hospitality mind and I believe they must not think they did something wrong. Internet connection has been bad and no staff understand how to fix it. I changed hotels during my stay in Lusaka to ran away from the terrible situation.
