My college age daughter and I stayed here at the end of a Northern Tanzania safari. It is immediately next to the Kilamanjaro airport (JRO), so a very convenient location prior to leaving the county. We had a "day room" from around 2 PM to 1 AM, when they were kind enough to shuttle us the 1 mile or so to the airport for a 3 AM flight. They actually came and knocked on the room door to be sure we were awake and ready to go.
We spent the afternoon at the pool, had an early dinner in the restaurant, and then went to bed for a nap for 4 or 5 hours before we had to leave. Very comfortable and spacious rooms, with mosquito netting over the big bed and air conditioning.
