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.

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.
