We booked two nights at Olga's. It is surprisingly quiet. The rooms are neat and tidy and the beds very comfortable. The restaurant is excellent. The staffs are helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay there again when we return to Livingstone next.

The rooms are new, clean and modern. The bathroom is among the best you will find for a place of this price range anywhere. They serve good food and service fees are included in the bill, which is nice. Unfortunately there is one big minus to this establishment: sleeping is nearly impossible. I stayed here for one weekend recently and... More

It was easy to find and was very welcoming. Rooms are very clean and pleasantly decorated. The restaurant was excellent! Beautiful Italian food. The dining room is open and it was pretty cold when we were there but they had coal braziers that kept us all very comfortable. Love the fact that they are very community oriented! The room was...

Olgas is a great restaurant that I have eaten in on many occasions With fabulous freshly cooked pizza and pasta dishes though my favourite dish is the chicken in red wine sauce. This year I have stayed at Olgas - the rooms are large, clean and very modern. A real delight

It is located just across the biggest shopping center in Livingstone. The room is very clean and cozy with reasonable rate. Very good cost-performance. That's the reason I always try to book this lodge when I go to livingstone for business trip. Sometimes it is fully booked, so you need to book more than 1 week in advance.

Can warmly recommed Olga's. Our room was comfortable and came with a proper mosquito net and a new-looking and clean bathroom. (And yes, hot water worked well, which I have learned to appreciate when travelling in Zambia.) Food at Olga's restaurant is very tasty, there is a variety of pizzas and pastas. They also serve delicious ice cream. Location is... More

Lovely clean modern rooms with extra blankets and mosquito nets provided, comfortable beds and a great Italian restaurant a few steps from your bed! It is right in town so a close walk to the ATM, shops and taxi rank - this does lead to a lot of noise, and beware the church bells providing a Monday morning wake up... More

If you don't care about noise you should go there. Olga offers rooms with western standard. Comfortable beds, modern bathroom and free breakfast give you a luxury feeling. However you need earplugs as the street is noisy and the church is loud too. Further the room had many mosquitos but the bed was of course equipped with a net. I... More

What a nice quaint spot. The rooms are very well done with excellent finishes. The staff are a treat and the addition of having a quality restaurant on your doorstep is perfect. This is a great place offering good value for your money. The noise is a possible issue for any light sleepers but other than that it's comfortable. The... More
