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!
Michelle, us1 night business trip
Very good 8,0
I stayed in one of the newly refurbished standard rooms. Mine was relatively small, but, very well done and comfortable. T0p marks for the redesign. Food was just OK and the gym is lacking. For those reasons I transferred to the Radisson Blu on my return.

Emergency business trip that was made much easier due to the accommodations.
John, us6 night business trip

Very helpful staff in the dining room and at reception. Staff did all they could to minimise the effect of extensive renovations. Buffet breakfast and meals were varied and excellent.

Nice property. A lot of upgrade and renovation going on. Elevators not available during renovation. Other than that, very nice, cozy and welcoming.

The entrance to the hotel was very impressive and several weddings were photographed there during my stay. The restaurant and bar were very nice and had a good selection of food and drink. The setting around the crocodile pond was comfortable and relaxing. The hotel was undergoing renovations and my only real complaint was that my room had not yet been renovated. The carpet was worn, the furniture was very dated, and the a/c did not work initially. The hotel maintenance staff worked hard and finally got the a/c working.
