I wanted to arrange a weekend trip from Nairobi to Kilimanjaro but other companies either could not arrange or the pricing was very high. Bobby arranged everything from a pick up in Nairobi to a car picking me up from the bus and taking me directly to the Lodge. Everything was included during my stay including a personal guide to...

I went in low-season (May) and it was very quiet - it seemed I was the only guest there some nights. The staff were attentive and friendly, and the manager got up at 3am to ensure I got safely away to catch an early morning flight, and emailed me to check I had made the flight after the taxi was...

It's the best place to be while at marangu with the best rates, delicious food and friendly staff. I would highly recommend Babylon Lodge to travellers who are seeking relaxing environment, good service at a good price.

Rooms were clean, food was excellent, relaxed environment. Free Wi-fi in the lobby. Power was inconsistent when we were there and breakers would blow if too many lights were turned on or things were plugged in, but think that may be expected in Africa. Also had inconsistent hot water for showering due to inconsistent power.

We came after the reception was closed, but they helped us very well. Very nice and clean room, good bed! Breakfast was delicious. The guy who worked there was very, very kind and helpful. Nice place to stay when you visit the Kilimanjaro.

Babylon lodge has great hospitality. located in Marangu region, a quiet place to relax. Prices of Tshs 50,000 per room is awesome, not that expensive if you look at the size of the rooms. the rooms are specious.

I stayed here for two weeks in February 2015. It was my base camp for doing a scientific research project. It was the perfect place for my needs -- the staff is friendly and helpful (thanks Frank and Dina!), the water hot, the wifi 'on', and most importantly, the staff is well networked. Dinah set me up with two research... More

My experience was great; from the welcoming staff, a personal touch from the manager, to the serenity of the area. It is a beautiful and relaxing place in the midst of Marangu, definitely worth multiple visits. I shall be back again and again... :)
