“Not great, not terrible”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Everything was a bit run down and the service was a bit poor. It took about 45 minutes to check in and they didn't seem to know what they were doing. The facilities weren't too bad, but it is definitely not a place you want to stay with small children. The bonus is that it is right next door to the Marble Inn, which is way nicer and has cheaper rates. Now we know where to stay when we are driving through Lusaka.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

A member of the hotel staff knocked on our room's door while my boyfriend was taking a shower in a shared bathroom outside. She said the hotel owner wanted to see me. I went to the reception to meet him, and while I was there the owner stalled for time, giving me an alternate phone number for this hotel as well as asking to see my guidebook. While I was there, someone entered our room and took all the money in my boyfriend's moneybelt, which he left in the room when he went to take a shower. The owner of this hotel seemed all too calm when we showed up with the police- he denied being involved and we never got our money back:( Avoid at all costs!
