Funny, altitude was not something we even thought about until we got there, and then our room was about as far from reception as you can go. Thankful for porters! but we were often out of breath by the end of the walk from the main lodge. The view from the main lodge is SPECTACULAR. It's a big hotel perched on a unique site, and the only one with a short drive down into the crater, for which we were very grateful. Meals are buffet, which is huge, but causes the usual issues with people taking their time to decide and figure out the process. Drinks from the bar were reasonably priced, considering where you are located. Staff was friendly and provided a choir for entertainment on one evening. Dining room is comfortable, but not spacious - you are a little close to other tables (making for entertaining listening if you are so inclined). Swimming pool is lovely, but it was too cold for us to use in May, although a couple of others did. Box lunches provided for our game drives were very good. It really is THE place to stay to enjoy the amazing sites in the crater.
