I stayed at Zawadi House before and after climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. It was recommended as an upgrade from the basic accommodations provided by Team Kilimanjaro. The place is small (only about ten rooms, I think), but it is quite charming and well appointed. It has a small, well manicured garden, a bar, and a restaurant that overlooks the neighboring banana plantation. The menu is quite limited (the chef prepares only 2 or 3 entree options each day), but everything I had was delicious and well presented. Breakfast is plentiful, with fresh fruit, eggs cooked to order, juice, toast, and tea or coffee. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and attractive, with quiet and effective air conditioning. The down sides are minor: it is too far from Arusha to walk there, especially for foreigners who are not accustomed to such environments. I paid $20 for someone from TK to drive me into town. Also, there were some issues with internet, power, and hot water malfunctioning from time to time, but I think this has more to do with Tanzanian infrastructure than with Zawadi House in particular. Whenever one of these things became an issue, the staff quickly did whatever they could to solve the problem. I would like to especially commend Emmanuel, who always greeted me with a broad smile and a genuine "can I help you?" He was a delight. I would definitely recommend Zawadi House
