Protea Hotel at Cairo Road was an ok experience. The rooms were clean, though the sight on the roof wasn't too nice. The rooms have seen better days but I you don't mind little aesthetical flaws, the rooms are great good & airconditioned.
The breakfast (included in the price) was really nice combination of everything from omelettes and sausages to fresh fruits, youghurt, muffin and different juices. The service was very nice.
If you want to get real Lusaka experience, I recommend to stay at this hotel. Other hotels were closer to the shopping centres and/or embassy areas which were pretty similar that anywhere else.
Zambia as a country is in relative good condition. There are still several problems but I would recommend Lusaka for those looking for some exotic city experience. Stores are full of stuff and people seem to be pretty ok with the current situation.
