I only stayed at this hotel due to it being the meeting point of an Intrepid trip. Whilst it was not as bad as other reviews have suggested it was not great. I chose not to stay the days before the tour rather stayed at the hotel next door. The main reason for this was the price (next door was... More

We stayed here a couple of nights as this was the location from which our Intrepid tour would depart - the second night was included as part of the tour so didn't seem worthwhile looking for another hotel as we arrived a day early. In hindsight, we would probably have liked to have stayed at another place that first night... More

I read some pretty shocking reviews about this place, people saying they had people come into their rooms at night, etc. I was there for 6 nights and had no issues with security, and nothing was taken from my room or from what I deposited in the main safe. The breakfast is ok, other food very slow and pretty mediocre... More

As with nearly everyone else, I stayed on day one of my Intrepid tour. The bed was comfortable (for a twin). The TV in the room was old and boxy (I didn't actually watch any tv so I couldn't tell you if it worked). The internet is slow and sometimes very difficult to access - do so in the lobby... More

Kivi is a good place, with nice, friendly staff and good quality rooms. The service at the restaurant is not extremely fast, but they are very kind and the food is worth the waiting. Please, note that some rooms have issues with the lock, so double check everything works fine before taking the room. So: why not??

I stayed here on four different occasions while on Intrepid adventures. I can't say enough about the attentive staff, they were lovely and kind. The rooms are 'aging' and I was worried about the door locks, one of the rooms I had smelled mildewy, showers were luke warm, the elevator sounds like it may break at any moment. But the... More

I braced myself for this hotel after reading some reviews, but it wasn't so bad. I stayed here as part of an Intrepid tour, of course, and after camping for 2 weeks the Kivi was luxurious! Even upon arrival, I was impressed. Staff were friendly, the buffet breakfast was good as well as the restaurant (just slow)! The Kivi is... More

We were booked in for the night prior to starting our Intrepid Serengeti safari and also booked for the night of our return. As we arrived later in the evening (around 8:30) they were very accommodating in their dining room being open for dinner even though we didn't eat until around 9:30. The rooms were quite generous and the bed... More

The pool is open to public for a small fee, so you do not need to be a guest to use it. The toilets, shower and changing rooms could be better, they are very basic, but if you just came for an afternoon dip, it is really enough. There are plenty of chairs, you get the towel for the fee.... More

I only stayed here as it was paid for by Intrepid but it was very nice even though a bit expensive for me. The room was comfy and breakfast was included which was also nice. It is walking distance fro the city and not too far from the Manyatta Backpackers also in Millmani Road where I stayed the night before
