My wife and I booked into Chingola Protea without prior arrangement. It was smooth and easy, although a tad expensive for Zambian standards. The food was lovely, the room was clean, fresh, kitted with small bar fridge, working air conditioning, warm water, satellite television and the room is situated far from any noise. (There were 2 weddings nearby, but we... More

The Hotel add said it had WIFI. As a person on a business trip, one takes this as fact. I get there and the Net is just crap, it was like this for both days I was there even after talking and advising the hotels and supplier there was a problem. Not Good. Check all your bar bills,.

My stay at protea was nice. The rooms are clean and the air conditioning was excellent. The water on the other hand, lived much to be desired, it was dirty, brown in colour. Breakfast was good and very fresh.

Stayed 5 days on a business trip. Very comfortable rooms. Great service. Adequate menu with a reasonable choice. Kitchen was accommodating if you wanted something else. Would recommend it anytime. Be warned that the wi-fi connection can be a bit up and down. Very slow, but then it is FREE so don't complain!

Clean, comfortable hotel with friendly staff. The food was good despite the limited menu. Wifi was a little unreliable but definitely good enough to use. Well recommended for anyone looking for a place to stay in Chingola.

Protea is Tops! I stayed at the Protea Chingola & was again very happy. The hotel is unfortunatley a bit out of the way for most business but this is only due to horrible road infrastucture and on going road works. The staff are Protea friendly!

A good hotel, considering the others in the area. Staff are friendly and helpful. The Wifi is included, but sporadic at times. Could improve on the television variety. Meals served are decent, and relatively well priced. A gym would be a welcome addition, seeing that it is mainly a business hotel
