Spent a working week in February 2020 at the Kibo Palace Hotel and loved every moment there. The welcome at the reception with a cold glass of passion juice foretold of a place to relish. My room, located in the rotunda section of the hotel was large and well furnished. It was kept very clean with fresh supplies of linen daily. The breakfast was a lovely spread of continental and local offerings. The staff always had a smile on their faces and ever willing to meet ones needs. A great place to stay.

We used this to overnight before and after an 11 day safari. The location is good. its on the road out of arusha to start the safari. The room was quiet, clean, roomy with a comfortable bed. It had a good A/C ( that's important to me). Nice, white table cloth, buffet style restaurant. Food was great and included in the stay. Had a small pool. The grounds are somewhat small. There is not much to do around the hotel, so don't plan on going out for a walk. But that seems to be the case in most of africa. The hotel is not 5 star, but a good solid 4. I suppose there are more deluxe hotels, but, this was a very good value for the money.

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our safari as arranged by our safari tour operator Easy Travel and have no complaints. Upon arrival, I was surprised with a special birthday message spelled out with flowers on the bed :) truly appreciated and a very warm welcome and start to our vacation in Tanzania. The rooms are nice and clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff are super friendly and accommodating. The only thing I would mention is that the showers are really tiny and don't provide a lot of space to move around. The restaurant provides plenty of options that should suit the palette for all. Nonetheless, it was a comfortable stay and you won't regret spending time at the Kibo Plaace Hotel.

My husband and I got to this hotel after a long trip from Barcelona, exhausted from the flights and the hour drive from Kilimanjaro airport to Arusha and were delighted once in the hotel. They suite was enormous and since it was our honeymoon the room was decorated with fresh flowers. The food was amazing and the staff really nice. We could recover ourselves from the trip and we felt ready to start the safari feeling fresh and new!

I will highly recommend anyone going to Arusha to overnight at this hotel. First the location is very ideal. Right in middle of Arusha, this made it easy to go on safari the following day. I cannot forget the fresh, delicious food and the friendly staff. The rooms are very specious and has all the amenities including air conditioning which was very important for me. The towels were very clean and the bedding very comfortable. If I come back to Arusha I will definitely stay at Kibo Palace
