Kilimanjaro Mountain Resort
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We stayed two days at this resort in September as part of the Kilimanjaro trek. The service, the rooms were excellent. The food was good; we had no complaints about the quality. On our last day we realized that our room door did not lock but forgot to mention it to the front desk. We would stay again at this resort.

I stayed at this hotel prior to and after climbing Kilimanjaro and was amazed by the quality. The rooms are spacious and felt like luxury after camping for 6 nights on Kili (on the second night I had a queen sized bed to myself!) The food wasn't fantastic though, although they did cater for vegetarians.

Stayed at this hotel on 2 separate nights before and after climbing Kilimanjaro. The road to the hotel really could do with being finished sometime soon but the hotel is lovely. The rooms are spacious and clean with baths. They cleaned my walking boots for 3 dollars and did a brilliant job almost like new. Food was ok maybe more choices would have been welcomed. Beds were comfy , has a small pool and gym. Had a good sleep here great stay

Let me start by saying the reception staff are great.
But it all goes down hill (ha) from there

cleaners are sullen , bar staff are rude, and the restaurant staff are cold to hostile
Plus the food is so bad.

It is poor quality ingredients, badly cooked and poorly served.

We had better food out of a tent at 4,700m!!!!!

Only if very cheap!!!

Room Tip: all the same

Really good hotel with spacious rooms ensuites etc.
Great bar area and pool. The bar prices were OK but the food was poor and expensive.
The pool was cool but refreshing!
The frequent power cuts added to the experience.
Great location for the Kilimanjaro trek.
The staff were friendly and efficient.

We stayed here after climbing Kilimanjaro.
It's a real surprise gem in an otherwise poor part of the world.
The staff were friendly, attentive, and helpful. The rooms were spacious, very comfortable and very clean.
The bar was brilliant, Internet connection, pool, spa, laundry service - it's pure luxury!
My only gripe was that the food wasn't brilliant - but then you do have to remember that you are in the middle of a jungle in a very poor part of the world,and the fact you can get a margarita pizza at all is a wonder to behold!
Defo recommend.

Stayed at the Kilimanjaro Mountain Resort Hotel either side of a Kilimanjaro climb in August this year.
From the moment we arrived, we were very well looked after. Everyone is very friendly and accommodaing, and nothing is too much trouble.
All of the rooms were very spacious and clean. Bathrooms were also huge. There is a good bar which also serves food, as well as the main dining rooms. We had breakfast and dinner included as part of our package, which was served buffet style in the dining rooms. This was pretty basic, but nice and wholesome. The night we arrived, we ordered from the a la carte menu as we arrived quite late. The hotel kept the kitchen open for us, which was really kind, and the menu choice was still very good. All of us really enjoyed our food options (much better quality and selection than the buffet!).
The hotel also offers a (much needed after a Kili climb!) laundry and boot cleaning service, which is brilliant - inexpensive and a very quick turn around, to allow for those guests departing early the next day.
There is also a fantastic beauty thearapist who offers massages, manicures and pedicures, which we can also recommend.
The hotel arranged a local guide for us when we arrived, to show us around the local area. This was really interesting and informative, and well worth doing, to familiarise yourself with the local area and local history.
All in all, a really enjoyable stay, and definitely worth coming to the hotel around your Kilimanjaro climb!
