I have stayed here several times over the past 5 years with both my family and on my own. I love hanging out in the beautiful common area and enjoying the great food! A night a cute genet visited us. The staff is awesome and treats us like family! Highly recommended!

My family and I have stayed at Kiota several times over the past few years. In addition to becoming friends with Barbara, Flora and the other staff, I look forward to returning to Kiota becuase it feels like a home, rather than an impersonal hotel (which is okay too, depending on the circumstance). Most recently we were at Kiota for a few days during February-March 2018. This time I really really enjoyed the food, especially breakfast (which is my favourite meal of the day). They had such healthy and tasty food options (even for vegetarians! Horray!) And things like superfood powders to sprinkle on top of yogourt! As always I found the staff to be super amazing, both with us, and also with our 9 year old - it seems like this is more than a job - they genuinely like kids, meeting new people, and it's more of a family feeling, which I personally like. I have recommended Kiota to several people over the years, who have also enjoyed it. I like the location because when we arrive into Tanzania (at the Kilimanjaro airport) it's not super far (inbetween the airport and Arusha city) so we can get there fairly quickly and sleep! ps. Check out the amazing cacti/succulents (HUGE!) and rosemary plants, as well as the incredible garden!! Puts my garden to shame for sure!

Thank you Barbara and all the staff of Kiota for a wonderful stay! Thank you Janine of Serengeti Safari Co. for recommending and arranging Kiota for us. Barbara and her film-maker son Gian were wonderful hosts. All the Kiota staff worked very hard to make sure our family's stay (kids 13 and 16) is a wonderful memory. All our meals were delicious and warmly served by Flora! In keeping with Barbara's guest house, the traditional Swiss breakfast was an unexpected but very welcome surprise. Kiota guest house is large, serene and furnished with many traditional gifts, which Barbara has received for her work. My family especially enjoyed an evening fire in the large fireplace. Kiota Guest House is the perfect place to write the next, great, African novel. We look forward to hopefully returning someday!

Wir haben hier zwei Nächte im Zuge unserer Hochzeitsreise verbracht. Den Gästen wird ein ganzes Haus mit riesigem Wohn-/Essbereich zur Verfügung gestellt. Insgesamt waren wir sehr zufrieden und können diese Unterkunft wärmstens weiterempfehlen. Besonders der Service ist Spitzenklasse. Flora, die gute Seele des Hauses, hat uns mit wunderbaren Gerichten verwöhnt. Diese wurden von ihr liebevoll frisch zubereitet. Zum Frühstück gab es unter anderem frisches Brot von einem deutschen Bäcker aus der Gegend. Die Besitzerin, Barbara, war ebenfalls sehr nett und spricht deutsch. Besseres Service geht nicht! Die Zimmer sind geräumig und sauber.
