We stayed here before climbing Kilimanjaro. It's a nice clean hotel with friendly staff. Our bedroom was a twin with single beds. The rooms were clean with individual air conditioning units. Our room was close to the main hotel. Friends stayed in rooms on other floors and encountered the strangest staircases - sometimes you need to go down a staircase... More

I love the staff and cleanliness. The service is fast enough and food was delicious. All the time in the restaurant I did not see a supervisor but nothing really wentt wrong. Rooms are clean and the bathrooms large enough with hot shower. Will recommend.

I spent 3 nights in this hotel - 2 nights before my trek and 1 night after - and it was a very disappointing experience. The main problem was the lack of hot water for showers. I managed to have hot water on one occasion only and that was only after the Tour Leader complained. The safe didn't work and... More

A little disappointing, quiet and strange numbering of rooms. Rooms were adequate, pool small and next to the main road, buffet breakfast fine and evening meal quite tasty. It is a taxi ride from Arusha so little to walk around outside. Pleasant staff, and Rose's gift shop has some quality, well- priced goods in comparison with offerings over the rest... More

We recently stayed at the Snow Crest Hotel before and after climbing Kilimanjaro. This is a large hotel with loads of rooms (although I think we were the only 12 people staying there). The food was quite good and the beer was cold. The service certainly left a lot to be desired. Very strange atmosphere in the lobby and hallways.... More

The room was large with a large bathroom (which oddly was fitted with scales!). The hotel had a pool, which we weren't there long enough to use, and a bar, restaurant and gift shop, which we were. The staff were friendly and attentive and breakfast and dinner very good with vegetarian options. The prices were reasonable, and the gift shop... More

Nice hotel with clean rooms and facilities. But the atmosphere is cold and like an old age home waiting for something to happen. A little music in the restaurant and reception wouldn't go amis. The staff were friendly and the food took a while, but was good. I'll visit again, but I really hope the management take note of what... More

I had an infant with me and though they provided a crib, all the rooms face an open courtyard amphitheater type set up. It is so loud. If anyone shuts a door the walls are paper thin. You can hear talking even if people are whispering. DO NOT come to this hotel if you have small children. :) I was... More
