We stayed at Marangu Hotel Prior to, and after our Kilimanjaro climb. The hotel rate includes both breakfast and dinner. Options around the hotel are scarce so this is welcome. The rooms are in small houses located in a large attractive garden. The rooms themselves are very good as well.
As for the Kilimanjaro climb itself it was very well organized. The guides are professional and were a lot of help when ascending for the summit. If I were to point out something it would be that the guides did not explain a lot about the mountain and what's what.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Marangu Hotel is set on 12 acres of beautiful garden and has been open since 1932. We have been organising climbs of Kilimanjaro, on all routes, for over 80 years. The original farm buildings (now offices and reception) were built in 1907 as part of a coffee farm before being converted in 1932. Guest accommodation is provided in cottages around the gardens, and meals are prepared with vegetables from our own gardens and home baked bread. ... more less
