This is a very nice hotel with pleasant grounds and a pool (chilly in September!). Our room was pleasant and the bed comfortable. The food, especially at breakfast, is good, but the curry excessively spicy, and one day the breakfast room was very crowded so getting food was slow when we were on a tight schedule. The staff are helpful... More

The hotel was in a nice location, with pleasant decor and nice if slightly dated rooms. Service was average with only 1 checkout counter in the morning. Jacaranda restaurant served decent food although the Chinese food was disappointing. .

I have been coming to the Pamodzi (Taj) for years on work assignments and they have gone from good to excellent. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The staff is pleasant and polite. The food is great, at breakfast and room service has a nice variety from local Kariba bream with nshima to great Indian vegetarian dishes. If you... More

Simply awesome place to stay! You are welcomed like a king and your stay is friendly and warm. Everybody treats you like a brother or sister and you do not feel like you are away from home. This is what I refer to as life where you are blinded by the warmth of the staff and you do not see... More

Used for an overnight stay in Lusaka. Good hotel, but a little dated in style. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast food was good and plentiful. A few very minor issues in the room, but nothing to spoil the stay. Drinks facilities in room, but one HOT milk carton was off. Magazine stuck to coffee table, presumably by spilled... More

Well located along a leafy street. Friendly and efficient staff. Pleasant communal areas with plenty of places to sit and have meetings or relax. Excellent breakfast and buffet lunch. Rooms need to be renovated as they are small and tired. Worth staying at the Pamodzi although there are many new hotels in Lusaka that will take business from this hotel... More
