I have used the conferencing facilities at this hotel on two recent occasions for running technical training courses of several days each.

The conference room could do with a much larger screen as... More

A good basic hotel for business My room was decent and very clean I could only complain about the fridge running all night because it had not been defrosted for a while (yes I am quite sensitive about this kind of noise...) Kitchen is quite good as well; for one evening we had a nice braai ! Otherwise staff is... More

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

Compared to the Protea at Arcades in Lusaka the Chingola version is a real let down. Rooms are clean, but service is very slow from restuarant. Breakfast was good. Internet comes and goes. During my stay the bar had no packets of chips or even peunuts. Staff sometimes battle do understand simple requests.

Nothing special for the price you pay but you won't get anything better in Chingola. restaurant food is good! Never received refills of coffee in the room. Toilets need some major attention as they very outdated.

What an oasis in the mining town. Spacious and well laid out with a nice pool area and general ambiance. Room was spacious with all the expected features. The DSTV boquet is the norm at all hotels in Africa. Unfortunatley we did not dine or have breakfast. I will stay there when I return

Clean rooms cold beer and friendly staff. However internet is not reliable, so from a business point of view you cant get to much done. I have stayed here numerous times as it is convenient when visiting KCM, and the internet is still the same as 4 years ago.
