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.

I am staying here now for four nights and am in an upstairs double room in the back. The whole hotel is old and could use an upgrade. The staff is very friendly. Breakfast is the same every morning but good, and the steaks in the Cattleman's Grill restaurant are good and cheap. In Europe you would not pay 120... More

Very kind and helpful staff, both at the reception and in the restaurant/bar. Quiet place. Good value for money. Television system did not work, so no tv in the room was the only complaint.
