I went to Lusaka on business and decided to spoil myself by staying at the Radisson. It is a new hotel and most of the reviews are fantastic. I was given Room 237. Upon entering my room, it had an odd stale smell. I noticed straight away a paper fruit basket with half eaten rotten strawberries and grapes. I looked at my bed and there was a pair of dirty, smelly black male socks ! The sheets were creased, crinkly and looked slept in not too long ago ! The bathroom looked used (leave that to your imagination !) Bridget, the floor manager came up and casually stated " The guest who was meant to have checked out has been in and out of this room the whole day ! " She agreed that the room was not clean and fit for a new guest and moved me to 232. This room was much cleaner and the beddings looked washed and ironed. I took off my clothes to have a shower and a man walked into my room ! Lucky, I had a towel around me. He too had been allocated room 232 as he showed me his card ! He had sense of humour when I told him that he wasn't what I ordered ! There must be a flaw with their key card system as both rooms I had been given seemed to have been allocated to two different guests with totally different names ! Bridget again apologised and bought me dinner. I have nothing else to add except "FAWLTY TOWERS "
