Radisson Blu Hotel Lusaka Review

Posted on February 2, 2017 by in Club Carlson / Radisson, Hotel Reviews


The Radisson Blu Hotel Lusaka is a modern Category 5 property that’s similar to the Radisson Blu Hotel in Nairobi’s Upper Hill and the Radisson Blu Anchorage Lagos. It’s a low-rise building right in the modern city center, surrounded by several malls that form the backbone of city life in Zambia‘s capital Lusaka.

There was almost no security at the front gate and it came complete with a sleeping guard; apparently security is not really necessary here…




Check-in at this Radisson Blu was easy and friendly and I was allocated an awesome room with a large square footage. My room had a modern, somewhat artsy design and layout and great, comfortable beds.




The recent bathroom has aged already, which is surprising given the recent completion date of the hotel (it’s less than five years old).



The air conditioning unit was loud but effective and the internet was fast at almost 20 Mbit.

The Radisson Blu Hotel Lusaka features a big pool, though it is not heated so the water is cold for swimming. There’s also a well-equipped gym and spa.




I enjoyed both a good breakfast and lunch buffet at this hotel, where there were a good number of items to choose from. I would have preferred more high quality items, though.











The staff during my stay were mostly friendly, but sometimes bossy. The taxi drama here is a big headache, so walking to the malls across the street to get one instead is probably a good idea.

The Radisson Blu Hotel Lusaka had rates at $250-$350 at the time of my stay which is really high. It’s a good hotel and likely worth it given the services but I still felt the sub $200 rates it sometimes posts are the right category for this hotel.
