I stayed at this hotel for about a week when I was visiting Lusaka on business and had my wallet and phone stolen while staying there. The attitudes of the security guards and staff were just terrible as they were very arrogant. I would not advise anyone to stay at this hotel as there is no value for money and... More

I found the hotel to be quite practical and central especially if you are in Lusaka for meetings. I appreciated the free shuttle pickup and drop off arranged by the hotel (upon request). The 2 negative points are: 1) that I have is that the wifi is not so stable. I've stayed at the hotel on 2 different occasions and... More

Arrived at around 3.00am and was charged. Next morning I was charged again. Explanation was that its industry practice, I saw it as lack of customer care. The breakfast was not upto expectations though the food was tasty.

Situated in the business district, with helpful and courteous staff. The hotel is a new construction so rooms were clean and comfortable. Spent only 1 night since I was on a short trip, but my stay was pleasant enough. For figuring out the hot and cold water in the shower and tap, look carefully for small coloured indicators under the... More

I stayed at the Grand Palace after the cab driver recommended it. I was looking for a budget hotel with good standards (oxymoronic?). I have paid $150 for decent hotels and even $200 for a 5 star Hilton family room. But I was told that in Lusaka prices are higher than the usual. So I was dropped of at this... More

I normally don't have a say in where I stay so the company usually books me into the Grand Palace when I have to go to Lusaka for work. First impression is the place looks good. Whatever you do, DON'T eat there, you'll regret it! Make sure you ask for a "soft" bed you arrive or you'll end up in... More

I actually slept well for a change! The rooms were nice and clean. They seem to have 2 ways of switching off the lights and if you start off with one, apparently the other doesnt work. The night receptionist was a real star and very helpful. The hotel arranged for my airport drop off. It's not too far from the... More
