I wish there was a rating in-between "very good" and "average." Olga's is not "average" by any means, but I could not rate it "very good" - although with a few improvements, I think it could be excellent. First, the good. My room was spacious and spotless. There was a ceiling fan which kept it cool. The bathroom was clean,... More

Very affordable rates for exceptionally clean and neat rooms. Friendly, welcoming staff. Breakfasts were fantastic! Their restaurant offers great Italian food. Secure parking available. Staff were so helpful in suggesting activities and very willing to make arrangements on your behalf. I can highly recommend Olga's :-)

We came here after a couple of nights at Jollyboys and wished we'd come sooner. For about the same price as a double room with bathroom there, we got a spacious and pleasant room with a beautiful bathroom. The beds are big and comfy, rooms cool and quiet. The thatch roof makes it really nice. Showers are great, and you... More

Superb rooms. Spotless. All new. Fabulous restaurant. Friendly staff. Love it. So close to the falls and the parks. We moved here from waterfront which was the opposite kind of experience at 4 times the cost of Olga's. All the rooms are equally lovely and the coffee is the best coffee south of Cairo.

The rooms are very nice and clean, staff is very nice and the restaurant offers great food. I would recommend this place, also as you are supporting a charitable cause. However, while we were staying there we had sleepless nights. 2 out of the 3 nights were loud and we couldn't sleep. There seemed to be a club or bar... More

I have now stayed at Olga's three times and I shall continue to return. The accommodation block was added in 2012 and the rooms are really nice. The toilet and showers are done Italian style with small tiles and beautiful finishing. To top it all of the food is some of the best in Zambia. The rooms are 300 for... More

We have been doing quite a few trips but as a rule we never go to anything Italian when we are abroad. I was intrigued by the reviews about “Olga’s place” and decided to make an exception. We were not disappointed. The rooms are clean, spacious and well equipped. The hotel staff were helpful. We went there in the dry... More

I stayed at Olga's for 3 nights in July 2013 - as expected, it's a very solid / nice place. The hotel market here is very odd and very expensive - lots of the "high end" hotels which are super expensive, but don't really look very nice... Olga's is sort of a small inn, nicer than a hostel but not... More

I stayed at Olga's for a week in April, 2013 and had a fantastic experience. The rooms are modern and very comfortable and have lovely bathrooms (with hot showers). The staff are excellent and will help you with anything you need. The restaurant serves delicious food (breakfast included) and has good WiFi. The location is great - just across the... More

I stayed for four nights in February and I don't think this accommodation can be beaten in terms of quality of rooms, the breakfast included, price and location. Modern rooms, mine had a double and single bed in it, no air con but ceiling fans, tea/coffee making facilities plus table & chairs and personal safe. Beds are very hard but... More
