Radisson Blu Hotel Lusaka

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I arrived in the morning before the regular check-in time. The Receptionist on duty, Kraus Muchimba recognised how tired I was and went out of his way to find me a room that was immediately available. I was extremely grateful. Throughout my stay, he consistently checked on how things were going for me and answered all my questions with integrity. When I had a concern about a recommended restaurant, the Concierge - Lwamba Mumba, immediately took charge. He indicated that he knew the owner of the establishment, took a copy of the restaurant bill and promised to follow up directly with the owner. He recognised that my dissatisfaction reflected on how I would view the Radisson Blu. Lungowe Mubita, another Receptionist was also very helpful with assisting with my departure arrangements. I mention these individuals by name because, I do a significant amount of travel and am able to recognise sincere customer service when I receive it. This service was excellent.

Outstanding and well located hotel with exceptional service and facilities. Great food and fantastic staff. Will continue to use Radisson Blu when I travel for business. Suggest you place at least 2 bottles of water in the room.

Organized an event at Radisson Blu in Lusaka, the hotel is conveniently located and has a good shopping mall at a walking distance to the hotel. The event set up and timing was very professional thanks to Ms Melba Banda. During my staying the staff was very friendly and helpful, specially Ms Natalie and Mr White. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

Stayed in the hotel for about two weeks. Very well organized. Quite and inviting environment. The Chuba Bar works 24h which is great is are Jett lagged and need a nice espresso or a quick snack. Will stay here again when I come back in the future.

Terrible, early check in informed 30-45min wait for room to be made. Well over an hour later and only while I complained multi times did I eventually get a room! Would prefer honesty to say no early check in. Room service ordered Steak, chips, pepper sauce, dessert, single gin & tonic no lemon. Room service delivered Steak, mash potatoes, no pepper sauce, no spoon to eat the desert, lemon in my double G&T! Of the last 5 times I have stayed they have managed to get my details correct once. As a Club Carlson Gold member this is your poorest hotel

The location of the property is excellent.It is centrally located and it has access to many amenities. The service was good and response to requests was quick. The rooms are spacious though the bath tab is too small. The shower could do with a little more sealing of the water from sipping through. otherwise its a good place to be for leisure or business.

Very friendly and helpful people! Late check out was made very easy and airport shuttle was organized. The restaurant was just across the road which was ok. Very nice location, well maintained garden!

Excellent service. Excellent stay. Very relaxing. Beautiful place to be. Nice environment. Only introduce more varieties in the breakfast menu (Indian food). Improve on the furniture quality. Introduce carpets in the rooms. Otherwise very good place to be.

Excellent. Very beautiful hotel with pleasant staff and service. The breakfast was very nice, good variety. The parking space for residents was convenient. The bathroom is spacious with all amenities required for a traveler

I've stayed at this hotel twice, both times for work, and it has been more than adequate. The pluses include: friendly and efficient staff; locattion near a couple of large shopping malls and the weekend craft market (I'm not a hobby shopper by any means, but it's very convenient in terms of getting to restaurants or if you need something quick from the pharmacy or stationary store or groceries, etc.); there's a business center where you can print documents (it's often not staffed, but...I found it helpful in a pinch), there is a salon/massage on the premises (a call out to Mercy at the spa for massage), the breakfast is quite bountiful (you can get whatever you could think of and then some), the snack bar is a little limited in terms of menu, but Ronald C. makes a fantastic latte (see photo). The only downside is that the rooms where I've stayed, although very, very spacious, are sort of dark. I would try for a poolside room for better light next time, and the towels were on the flimsy side. But, all in all, it's very convenient for work travel. Although I haven't had a chance to spend any vacation time in Zambia, I would also think it'd be a good option for a night in Lusaka to/from safari locations.
