The room was basic and seemingly old, but clean and comfy. The food was fresh and tasty. The internet was very good and we were able to Skype using their wifi. A little pricier than other places, but overall it was worth it!

A little gem. Okay, the rooms are basic, but clean, breakfast is good and the internet is surprisingly good. Staff are really friendly and helpful. You can pay so much more in Lusaka and get so much less. Thanks Nena!

A nice basic place to stay. The rooms are fine - nothing fancy but we just needed a place to sleep. The food was very good and the staff very pleasant. You can safely go for walks during the day. We were able to walk to the shopping area no problem. Not a bad place to stay.

Nena Guest house has increased the price, I paid 60 USD which for Lusaka is normal but it is not a steal anymore. I had tried to book via their internet side but never got an answer. Nena agreed that it would be better to take the booking form off the web page as it doesn't function. The guest rooms... More

We stayed at Nena's arriving in Lusaka; no problems; it's a basic and busy guesthouse in need of some sprucing up, but for the price, okay. Decent meals, noisy bar, and the room by the kitchen gets all the food aromas from the grills. But okay. However, on our return to Lusaka, we were told our pre-booked/pre-payed room was not... More

This guest house is not able to manage reservations. I had made two reservations for different dates, they were confirmed by email and both times when I arrived there I was informed "we are fully booked". Not really nice after a long journey. The first time they brought me to a 'hotel' not to describe but the same price. The... More

Nena's is really a restaurant and bar with rooms - there are only four but they are en-suite with aircon and satellite TV, and very comfortable if a little small. They represent fantastic value for money at K200,000 for a single; K250,000 for a double/twin. A cooked English breakfast is included. The restaurant serves some of the best food I... More
