"Lovely 1 night stay"
Friendly staff and really good food." See all these reviews: 9n in Zambia; 5n in Malawi
"Friday night at Latitude 15"
Clearly many non-residents had come for dinner, with the consequence that the service in the restaurant was very slow, although the food was good. In contrast, we saw only a handful of other guests at breakfast the next morning.

"Very comfortable overnight stay"
Although we were leaving before the normal breakfast time they arranged for us to have a full cooked breakfast at the time we wanted. Very reasonable charges for food and drink." See all these reviews: 18n in Zambia
"Stylish hotel convenient for stopover"
Attractive decor - I would describe as contemporary African .
There was a shop selling bags and jewellery but unfortunately it was closed by the time we got there .
The room was lovely and had a coffee machine and minibar in it . We borrowed a hairdryer from reception
For dinner - As veggies , we had an halloumi and asparagus salad to start and a vegetable linguine dish for main course . Very filling!!!
Breakfast had full English/Irish breakfast available as well as huevos rancheros , cereal,fruit,yoghurt on the buffet table .
We had omelettes, which were great .
We only had a short stopover at Latitude 15 but found all the staff to be very friendly and pleasant.
I think it is a great place if you want to be near the airport for an early flight the next day . I really liked it .
We met some Australians later on , on our trip , who had also stayed there , but for two nights due to a flight problem and they also liked it very much . I took photos which I will put on TripAdvisor soon" See all these reviews: 11n in Zambia
It's a beautiful place with great food and a fun lounge.
It seems to be a hangout spot for the affluent Lusaka crowd, which was a nice contrast from many of the places we've stayed in Africa that are generally only frequented by travelers and expats." See all these reviews: 8n in Zambia; 6n in Rwanda
"That's not Cheese, it's Parmesan!"
The waitress I most warmed to was Helen, who smiled broadly when she saw us for a second time and chatted with us, making us feel welcome. Gareth is working very hard at keeping the restaurant at the top of the prize-winners and Biemba too went out of her way to be good to us. It was also really great to meet Jake Da Motta, whom we interrupted at his work in "The Other Side" to ask about a driver who could maybe help us find John's old haunts from when he worked in Lusaka in the early 60s.
The driver, Isaac, was really good, walking up Cairo Road with us, accompanying us into the Cathedral and waiting patiently while John revisited the Civic Centre where he had reported on meetings from the Press Box in the Council Chamber. Because they are opening "The Other Side" as a health club, we were offered free taster massages, which were very good indeed. By the time we left Latitude 15, after 3 nights, we felt well at home there and again were sorry to leave." See all these reviews: 21n in Zambia

"Comfortable stop over"
As our flight was at 21.25 we had to wait all day for taxi pickup, theHotel very accommodating and helpful in keeping us occupied. Wandered about the immediate area of hotel, no great shakes but did not feel threatened." See all these reviews: 11n in Zambia
"Latitude 15 review"
It is all boutique with the most fabulous African artifacts on the walls, food was fab, both by the pool and for breakfast. Room was lovely.
I wish we were staying for days, not just overnight." See all these reviews: 7n in Tanzania; 6n in Zambia; 5n in Botswana; 3n in Rwanda; 1n in South Africa
