Taj Pamodzi Hotel: Our full report

The Taj Pamodzi Hotel, in the centre of Lusaka, and is most frequently used by our travellers as a stop-over ...

... hotel for just one night.

It's a large, slightly impersonal hotel, with comfortable en-suite, air-conditioned rooms, and a selection of restaurants. As the Taj group of hotels originated in India, you'll always find a great curry option for your evening meal. There is a separate bar (often complete with a live pianist) and a large glossy atrium with sofas and easy chairs.

The Taj also has a good pool, large enough for swimming lengths, and a spa offering massages, pedicures, manicures and a selection of other treatments. There is a gym adjacent to the hotel which has a very good reputation as one of the city's better fitness centres; hotel guests get complimentary access. There is also a business centre and a hairdresser in the hotel.

Our view

We think that the Taj Pamodzi is a good option for those travellers who want the comfort and security of a large, relatively modern hotel at the end of their trip. Few of our travellers rave about it, but many opt to return as it's a fairly 'standard' offering which is convenient and fairly predictable.

The Taj has a shuttle bus to the airport – although to ensure a reliable service, we at Expert Africa usually organise our own transfers to and from the hotel with a separate transfer company.
