9.0.Superb.
  • 8.0.Very good

    Very helpful staff in the dining room and at reception. Staff did all they could to minimise the effect of extensive renovations. Buffet breakfast and meals were varied and excellent.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Our favorite place to stay in Lusaka. Rooms are always clean and comfortable - hot showers, great shower pressure, soft linens, great pillows, blackout curtains and fluffy towels. Staff are always welcoming and helpful from check in to check out. Breakfast is 10/10 especially the garden/pond vibe. The only suggestion is that the pool needs a little love. Definitely swimmable, but ageing a bit.

    It was fairy ok in general. The cups in the rooms were all dirty so you need to improve that.

    Excellent Room - Service Could Be a Bit Better

    I had been to many other hotels in Lusaka but I was very pleasantly surprised by my room at Southern Sun. It was newly renovated and stylishly decorated. The breakfast selections were very good, complete with an omelette station, cappuccino selections, and 30+ food options. The only hesitation in my review was that when I reviewed at 3 AM in the morning, the hotel gave me a scare by saying they were completely booked even though I had booked and paid for my reservation in advance. I had even called to inform them that I'd be arriving via a late night international flight!
