Not bad, friendly folks. Rooms a bit musty and need to change the carpets. the food was good though - very fresh. Internet a bit epileptic and not good for online business meetings. A huge downside for me was the power. the power went off whilst I was in a meeting and I expected a generator to kick in but... More

when we approached the hotel it looked encouraging from the outside but once inside reality struck and it was extremely disappointing. Rooms basic not very clean. The staff were friendly but ask them a question and they were hopeless. We asked for coffee in the bar area and it took so long to come I thought they had gone to... More

My first ever visit to Zambia last December 2014. Handy location. We had booked one of the functions rooms for our small intimate wedding which was suitable in size and all. The only disappointment was that the aircon was not working and we were all sweating and our make up was running down our faces after all the dancing and... More

A manager that was not allowed to be contacted with the problems. mats in... More

I wrote a glowing review about Chrismar Hotel regarding my visit to Lusaka last year, around October 2012. It is with great pleasure that I can now provide any potential visitors to Lusaka, Zambia with an update on this wonderful hotel! I grew up in Zambia, and frequently visit to see old friends, and always stay at Chrismar. After my... More

You can go here without reading any reviews... you have all facilities which you require. you have pool, fitness center and great restaurant. WiFi is available. The live music band near the pool at the evening is main attraction. A long stressful day relieved.... Rooms are so comfortable.

I was brought up in Zambia, and frequently revisit to see old friends. Each time I visit, I always stay at Chrismar Hotel Lusaka. Judging by previous reviews, it is true that this hotel has had it's problems in the past. Indeed I have experienced some of them, but none of them were ever a major drama, and were dealt... More

If the owners would just invest a small fraction in maintenance of the cost of their string of high-end BMWs parked outside, this place would be decent value. The staff is very friendly and tries to help, but there is no excuse for the broken plumbing fixtures and old carpeting when they are obviously doing good trade. Breakfasts are poor... More

The bed was comfortable and the room itself clean... However, the aircon wasn't working, no hot water, and the water from the taps full of suspicious black particles. Expect a lot more for $122 a night.
