The main attraction of this Mountain Lodge is the proximity to the mountains. The entrance to Arusha National Park is just a few minutes drive and there are great views of Mount Meru and towards Mount Kilimanjaro from the coffee plantation and the golf course around the hotel. However, the buildings are a bit drab. The rooms are in little... More

Come to this hotel for conferences out of town (keep your people in) and for treks. Be prepared for a rather dated interior design and average to good value for money altogether. Ngurdoto Mountain Lodge is located halfway between Arusha town and the Kilimandjaro, making it an ideal venue for people departing for treks. I was there for business and... More

I stayed at Ngurdoto twice in the past two years. Both, while attending conferences. The hotel rooms are cosy, lovely beds, sufficient supply of warm water (needed during the cold season). The food is okay, i've had breakfast, lunch and dinner a couple of times. If you are looking for a place to zone out and be surrounded by nature,... More

I stayed at Ngurdoto for a three-day conference in July. The hotel reservations, airport pick up, meals, etc. were arranged by the organization holding the conference and not the hotel itself so I can't comment on most of these. The hotel grounds were beautiful but they could make use of the grounds more and include walking trails with the unused... More

Although it is a bit far from Kilimanjaro Airport, it was a nice surprise!! Loved to stay in the rooms outside the main hotel, it was just a little walk away. But I saw some other rooms that were TOO far away! The room did not have AC, just a fan. The electricity sometimes lacks, it happens in Tanzania. But... More

We were quite worried about what we would find based on TripAdvisor posts. However, our stay was totally fine. Our rooms were outside of the main lodge. They were quite spacious, and we did not encounter unwanted rodents or bats or very many annoying insects. The staff were very accommodating, although some were a bit pushy regarding tips (there is... More

Its was after my hike to the Kilimanjaro that we had 2 days to spare and were first sent to a rubbish old lodge, where we checked out right away again and considered stopping by that new hotel we had seen on our way. Said and done, an hours later we walk up to the empty reception to eventually talk... More
