Marriott’s Protea Lusaka.

The location is likely one of the best in all of Zambia‘s capital, with direct access to two malls and several good restaurants. Since the taxi drama at this hotel is even worse at night, it is awesome that you can walk to both shopping centers even late at night without any issues.

Check-in was friendly and we were in the room in no time. It was surprisingly large and had two massive king-size beds – easily the biggest two beds I have ever seen in a hotel room that is not a suite.

Everything was functional, though the search for an electrical outlet proved eternal.

The bathroom was huge too and had a modern rain shower; it even had the shower handles in reach BEFORE you hit the water. The only problem was that hot water was only available after a 15-minute wait.

The staff at the Lusaka Tower were helpful in getting a taxi organized for a somewhat normal price and they also offered to arrange a takeaway breakfast for 4.45 AM.

Rates at this Protea are often under $150 or you can use 7,500 Marriott Rewards points, making it a great value stay in Lusaka when compared to the Radisson Blu Hotel Lusaka. However, the latter does have more and better facilities.

You can book the Protea Hotel Lusaka Tower here.
