Nice hotel with clean rooms and facilities. But the atmosphere is cold and like an old age home waiting for something to happen. A little music in the restaurant and reception wouldn't go amis. The staff were friendly and the food took a while, but was good. I'll visit again, but I really hope the management take note of what... More

I had an infant with me and though they provided a crib, all the rooms face an open courtyard amphitheater type set up. It is so loud. If anyone shuts a door the walls are paper thin. You can hear talking even if people are whispering. DO NOT come to this hotel if you have small children. :) I was... More

The lobby had a lot of space with chairs and tables and it also had free wi fi in lobby and bar in the hotel. On way to kili we stayed for one... More

I have stayed at the Snow Crest Hotel twice while accompanying my partner on his business trips. The staff are very friendly but the managers are out of reach! What I dislike most is the breakfast! They have the worst breakfast! The rooms are superb especially the shower. The beds are comfortable. The gym equipment were not working on both... More

We stayed in this hotel before and after climbing Mt Kilimanjaro. Considering the conditions in the tents on the side of a mountain, the hotel is a welcomed sight of returning back to normality. However, the hotel room layout and numbering can leave you puzzled to where your room is actually located. Normally in hotels the rooms with a number... More

An nice place but the location of the hotel does that you cant go outside the hotel. Ot has amazing food, nice service and a good bar. The rooms are also good and it does good with an shower with hot water after a week with safari or kilimanjaro.

I recently stayed at the Snowcrest Hotel because I was running a conference there. The hotel is located just outside of town which is nice because you don't get the disturbance of being in the city centre. I really enjoyed my stay there. It is so quiet at night. The staff are very polite and very friendly and Elias, Silvano... More
