Had a grand time at Bongwe; the rooms were above what I was expecting for the price point and the crew there are welcoming and genuine. Had a few late nights at the bar, which cracks on to pretty late and is packed with funny characters and good humour. The food at the bar's fair delicious, or at least the... More

Very good location, very good quick replies to e amils. Rooms clean, spotless in fact. Spacious too. Close to small shopping centre and to lots of restaurants too. Pub is really pleasant. On one of the nights we were there the neighbouring pub next door had a long and raucous party that went on for a bit but that happens... More

I've stayed at Bongwe many times as I pass thru Lusaka, and I'll stay many more times as well. The staff are very genuine and friendly, the crowd very welcoming and although fridaynights Can be loud..... That's what Friday nights are for. Rooms are roomy and comfortable, cooking facilities great, bar menu good if cooking is not your forte, and... More

I was flying out from Lusaka and had time to kill during the afternoon. I was planning on spending the night here but unfortunately they were fully booked so I stayed somewhere else and spent the afternoon at the swimming pool at Bongwe. Loved it! Everyone was very friendly, they organized my taxi to the airport, I could use the... More

I was lucky enough to stay at Bongwe while working on my graduate thesis, and it could not have been a better experience. My room was clean and welcoming and the staff were very accommodating of my research needs, including access to the internet and spreading out my work over the common room tables. In fact, the staff were quite... More

I spent two nights at the guesthouse and was OK, it is in Lusaka ROMA quarter. The staff were very helpful, the room was clean and comfortable...even too spacious, the fan on the ceiling was not working, but really not needed. My room faced the bar where a little concert was held...but noise very acceptable and the music was nice,... More

I spent two nights at the guesthouse, and enjoyed my stay. The staff were very helpful and the environment was quite comfortable. the room was clean and comfortable. nothing fancy, but i didn't expect fancy. the bar does generate some noise (music, voices, etc.), but nothing that kept me awake. the staff also introduced me to a wonderful driver, who...

Three out of the four rooms were very good size (there were 8 of us), one was strangely small with no en-suite. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. The downside which was disappointing was the live-band on a Friday night. I appreciate in a guest house that you have to look at all opportunities for revenue, but considering I believe... More

Some rooms lovely, some functional. Such a friendly place to stay, the staff could not be any nicer! Pool area is nice, with great buzzing bar which has a BBQ every night - very tasty. Nowhere within walking distance so be prepared to get taxis if you're here for a while.
