Aabiya is located in Ndola’s Broadway area close to town at the corner of Kabelenga and Tusha Street. Its a pleasent sight to see a solar panel covered roof as you arrive. However, the congested layout of the establishment is immediately evident. The welcome was lukewarm and there was no one to help with the bags. The upstairs rooms are accessed via a very narrow spiral set of steps. This 2 star lodge is not handicap-friendly! The rooms are spacious with the requisite amenities such as double bed, AC, bar fridge and TV. The window view was unpleasant corrugated iron sheets with chaotic cables in white trunking. The bathroom was very spacious with a nice shower. I was on the second floor and the water pressure was excellent. However, there is a notice in the bathroom which states a 3-5min hot water delay. In reality it was within 3min (long pipe effect/solar water and/or gas geysers). There is was also a laundry busket where you can dump your laundry and in the evening the basket will come back with clean ironed clothes. The establishment offers free broadband wifi which has property-wide coverage. Its very fast around 10Mbps. A bottle of mineral water is replenished daily. The bed was terrible on the first night and on protest the owner/manager assured it would be rectified. The mattress was only replaced after 2 days but with an acceptable replacement. The bed-side lamps had dimming switches but non-dimmable bulbs. The tea making facilities had a kettle and cup but nothing else. I also wondered why the bar fridge was on top of instead of inside the fridge cabinet. I found the staff to be clueless about what they do. The owner may wish to provide training. This extended to the breakfast which was basic but cold. They serve stricky and not back bacon. If you go after 730am for breakfast food would run-out. The glasses were not properly cleaned and the margarine in butter tubs was not refrigerated but kept on the tables.

The owner runs a very well appointed hotel. Free WiFi and laundry service. One great reason is that the food at her hotel is the best. I ate at a five star near there and the food was not even close. Made from scratch with fresh ingredients. Might take that little longer but when you have the food you won't be disappointed. Full breakfast included in the price, a great start to the day. Very clean rooms and friendly staff. For the price, location, security,food abs cleanliness this is the reason for the high scoring of this establishment. Happy travels.
