The staff here were all very warm and welcoming, regularly checking up on us to see if everything was ok. This was a work trip and so it was conveniently located to the town center. Spacious, clean rooms and a nice outdoor dining area.

I have stayed at the Chingola Protea Hotel a few times now and have always had a fairly pleasant stay. Friendly staff, secure parking, smallish swimming pool – I’ve never seen anyone use it. The room is modern with an average size flat screen TV, selected cable channels, tea & coffee facilities, small bar fridge. Bathroom has a separate shower...

I took my parents to Protea Hotel for dinner, the food was excellent. There was a good choice on the menu. The waiting staff were polite, professional and attentive. The steak I had for my main course was perfectly cooked, tender and very tasty. The meal was good value for money. Overall a pleasant experience.

The hotel is nice and clean and the service is good and the staff friendly. It is an old colonial style building that has been impressively upgraded/updated.

A clean, comfortable, friendly and well run hotel. Concerned not many folks about but perhaps that is a reflection of the state of the mining industry and not the hotel. Beers and a late night dinner at the bar worked very well.
