THis was a lovely hotel. Peaceful, clean and comfortable, the food was great and easy to relax. They seem to know what they are doing and I would guess have been doing it for quite some time. Highly recommend for great value and great memories

We stayed here a total of 2 nights as part of our safari with Zara tours before and after our wild camp experience. It was a beautiful place with nice food. They even managed to bring some of our forgotten items from their other hotel i Moshi when we returned. Excellent service! WIFI is quite useless.

from outside the hotel seems to be pretty ok but when you get inside the rooms it looks like in a very uncomfortable hostel. the rooms were dirty, the towels were dirty and in the dining room all the sheets from the table had many coffee spots or from something else.

We don't have much experience with hotels in Africa. But the staff is really friendly, and there is nothing to complain about when it comes to the service. The rooms are clean, and the food ok. So we are happy :-)

Nice location close to Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro crater. Stayed one night on our way to Serengeti Wild Camp (with Zara Tours) and one more on the way back. IN total 4-5 hours drive from Kilimanjaro Airport. Friendly staff, A pool area where we enjoyed some beers while having a view of the surrounding landscape.

After 6 nights in a tent hotel seemed quite so luxury for me. In any case, nice rooms with good bed and mosquito net, ok bathroom. Lovely garden, friendly staff and very good food. The road to the hotel was really bumpy, fun experience.

I stayed for two nights. Fairly good place. The hotel did not match Swedish standards but tit was still fine. I felt welcome and enjoyed my stay. It was quite a few hours drive to get to Tarangire and Ngorongoro but much shorter to Lake Manyara. I would have preferred to stay a little bit closer to the parks.

Part of package deal for Zara Tours. We did the Safari, this hotel was a intermediate stay on the way to Serengeti. So we didn't have a choice Hotel lounge was very nice, and a good place to unwind. Pool table, bar... Or just relax and check your email Food was excellent. Nothing to complain about
