This lodge is one of the disapponting lodges in Tanzania. The view is extraordinary, but the rest got stuck in socialistic times.
The room is ok, relatively small with a huge window front with the view into the crater. It was cold, as most of the times in this Region and the room was not heated. This made us feel very uncomfortable. The balcony is nice, the dining room is like a train Station and Food is really not overwhelming. But you don`t starve anyway. The staff didn`t seem to be motivated and for African circumstances was Kind of unfriendly. No smile on the faces. During dinner a Music Combo played Music without any motivation or emphasis and as they played "Jingle bells" end of October we decided to got to bed where we couldn`t sleep as it was very cold. Drinks very very expensive! There are better lodges at the crater for the same Price.
