Staff at this hotel were fantastic. They do not speak much English but I am lucky I am fluent in Kiswahili. They work hard and are very helpful. The rooms are very basic but comfortable. Wifi was available near reception but was very slow. We were frustrated at not being able to see the mountain as it was very cloudy the first 3days! On the 3rd day we were able to see the stunning view of the Uhuru and Kibo peaks! Its is breathtaking! The food was great. The downside is that the lodge is tucked a long way from town. All in all, a glad I had this experience.
