Pool was out of service while we were there. Rooms are comfortable and clean and I found the staff friendly and accommodating. The water problems mentioned in previous reviews persist. Food is basic and fresh, but not exciting. The grounds of the hotel are a redeeming part of the hotel. I found it a satisfactory base if one is in town to climb Kilimanjaro and requires a room either side of the climb.
