Our room had a broken air conditioner, a toilet that would not flush(my husband kept fixing it), no hair dryer, was dirty, had no hand towels, and the bedding smelled funny.
Our flight out of Kilamanjaro airport was cancelled and we were directed to this hotel.
The staff seemed nice but were not helpful when I had questions about how to get through to someone at the airport about a reschedule of flight. Internet service was spotty..
Not sure if staff was unhelpful, or just did not know. Seems like these 2 am fight cancellations are common.... Yet they could not assure me of the routine.
