This resort is quite nice for a stay before and after your Tanzania trip. The food was just ok, the service acceptable. The rooms were nice and the grounds very attractive. The resort is RIGHT AT the airport if that is not clear to anyone, this is the Tanzania version of airport hotel. I would stay here again if I...

The KIA Lodge sends a driver to the airport to pick you up and it takes about 5 minutes to get to the lodge. The lodge rooms are stand alone huts that are comfortable and clean. The rooms have ceiling fans to keep you cool and are quite and relaxing. Good restaurant and bar and pool. Great views of Kilimanjaro...

After the visit to Ngorongoro Crater I stayed at KIA Lodge near to Kilimanjaro Airport. The staffs were very friendly and both check-in and check-out process were fast and efficient. My room was big enough and beautifully furnished. The food is good with many fruits available. You could also use a nice swimming pool if interested to get some exercise...

Its proximity to the airport is its main (some would argue, its ONLY marketing point). I would argue that it's not a terrible place to stay. It appears to aspire more to adequacy that to excellence, and in that department, it succeeds handily. Its rooms are a good size, clean comfortable rather than fantastically opulent. Its grounds are tidy and...

We stayed at Kia Lodge both before and after our safari in Tanzania. Our first night was extremely hot and both of our group's rooms had only overhead fans to cool us. We suffered through that night, but upon our return we realized that some of the rooms had air conditioning! Needless to say, our second stay was soooo much...

I had a very early flight from Kilimanjaro airport and so stayed overnight at Kia Lodge. Firstly, it was badly signposted and so my taxi took some time to find it, the welcome was lovely and I was shown to my room. By this time it was 7pm and I had to leave at 2 am the next morning. The...

We stayed at Kia Lodge for one night following our flights from the UK. The Lodge is conveniently located a few minutes’ drive from Kilimanjaro airport. The accommodation is in individual huts spread throughout the gardens. The rooms were clean and tidy with a comfortable bed and we had a good night’s sleep. There was plenty of hot water for...

I stayed here the last time I was in Tanzania- hated it. Insects everywhere, poor service, untrained staff. Thought I'd give them a second chance this time- even worse! No running water, phone between the room & reception wasn't working- in fact of the few people who I spoke to at the airport who had stayed there - complained about...
