Disappointing lounge with a high price
The service at this expensive lounge is disappointing. In general there is no prompt help and everything is very slow and not organized.

Incredible service
The view here is great. The food was good, not five star but solid. The staff there are excellent. True good service and very nice people. The spa service was a joy after so many days in the car. Would do again.

8/10 Very good

We had a very nice stay there the only problem was that this part of the country was hit by a lot of rain so quite a few of the roads in the crater was closed or flooded with a great risk to pass.

Absolutely AMAZING place! Incredible views of the crater from all rooms. Nice bar, great restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Service top notch. Make sure you show them you have prepaid for your room, as they wanted to charge me twice initially....

Great views
Stayed here while on Safari after climbing Kilimanjaro and was very pleasantly surprised. Using the few words of Swahili I had learned made all the difference and as a result, the staff and service was great. Dining Room very busy but with a good attitude we had a great meal. Service good, food same as everywhere else and very pleasant and tasty. (One needs to remember where you are and not have huge expectations!) The view is spectacular and worth rising early for the sunrise! Rooms were clean and absolutely satisfactory. A pleasant stay and would return there anytime

Toller Blick, sehr guter Service, saunettes Personal. Und das, obwohl es keine kleine Lodge ist.

8/10 Very good

Ein sehr schönes Hotel. Das Hotel fällt durch seine besondere Bauweise auf. Überall Steine aussen angebracht. Der Service ist ausserordentlich gut. Beim Einchecken wurden unsere Begleiter zur Personalunterkunft verwiesen. Erst auf Nachdruck erhielten wir den zweiten schlüssel. Ein Entschuldigung erhielten wir nicht.

Luxus(preis)klasse Hotel
Da wir zu Sonnenuntergang angereist sind und am nächsten Morgen bei Sonnenaufgang wieder (in die Ngorongoro Caldera) weiter gezogen sind, haben wir das Hotel nur zum Übernachten benötigt. Das Abendessen und das Frühstück waren ausgezeichnet. Letztendlich für die Buchung mitentscheidend war auch die Nähe zum Eingang des Ngorongoro-Schutzgebietes. Dafür ist dieses Hotel auch das teuerste meiner bisherigen Reisekarriere. Den Blick auf (einen Teil) des Ngrorongoro-Schutzgebietes lässt sich das Hotel gut bezahlen. Aber Safari ist eben Luxus und somit teuer ;-)
