My husband and I stayed for two nights here while on safari. Our room was large, but somewhat uninspired and had a dated feel to it.
The views of the Crater are outstanding but the facility itself is large and seems somewhat impersonal. After being in small, tented camps for most of our week, it was a somewhat disappointing end to our trip.
The wifi was quite erratic, but that seems to be a Tanzanian phenomenon. Hot water is only available at certain times of the day (5-8 pm and 5-8 am) which proved to be an inconvenience after a long day of travel when we arrived tired and dusty at 4 pm.
The staff were for the most part pleasant and helpful, although there seemed to be some hiccups with service in the dining room. Food was good but not outstanding.
The Sopa is close to one of the access roads to the Crater which made it convenient for the game drive. Would recommend it for its location and view.
