The hotel has a beauty look, and is warm enough even if m alone I relax. Standard of services has never dropped, they have well arranged rooms and very clean. Everything is just on point. Breakfast is excellent. The garden view is well kept , I feel like a queen at Kibo Palace alwaiz.

Kibo Palace Hotel was an amazing place to stay, my son and I stayed there for two weeks, everything was amazing especially the staff. Can't talk highly enough of the service especially from Jimmy, Valerian, Kennedy and Midjimbul (sorry about spelling)! Would defenitaley go there again when we return to Arusha.
