I have been traveling to Africa on a regular basis for many years and have found that many of the hotels in Africa start off well and then slowly deteriorate as they get older.
I have not been to Chingola for 5 years or so and expected the same from the Protea in Chingola.
It is not the most modern hotel in Zambia however the rooms and facilities are more than adequate and the staff are extremely helpful and could not do enough for us.
More than sufficient for what we needed.
