I was supposed to stay at Kibo for one night for an event I was organizing at their hotel. The marketing manager provided the hall free of charge because my event was for charity. I admired that so much that I stayed for 3 great nights. There is a building under construction across from Kibo so if you plan to spend a lot of time at the hotel it might be a little noisy for you. The pizza at the hotel restaurant is good but the breakfast could be better. Very recommended place overall.

I stayed for four days at Kibo-Place. I was on vacation and had plenty of time in the hotel. All the staff was friendly. The hotel was clean and very nice maintained. Breakfast was with many different dishes and was excellent. The Gym is well equipped and I used it. Also had a massage and it was great. The room I was in was big and the bed was comfortable. You have free Internet Wi-Fi access which for me was very important.
They give you at night a basket with cookie, chocolate and sweets and arrange your bed for sleep. Nice surprise.
I also ate dinner one evening and the dinner buffet was very nice and tasty.
All in all I had a great time at the hotel and the atmosphere is relaxing. The location is also good.
If can, get the room viewing the pool and lawn.

Room Tip: If can get the room facing the pool

We stayed at Kibo Palace when we were there to climb Kilimanjaro. It was a very pleasant experience. Rooms were clean and very well maintained through out our stay. We ate at the restaurant several times - breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast was great with a good spread. Lunch and dinner were good but might get a little repetitive. Staff are friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of mount meru.

The hotel has a beauty look, and is warm enough even if m alone I relax. Standard of services has never dropped, they have well arranged rooms and very clean. Everything is just on point. Breakfast is excellent. The garden view is well kept , I feel like a queen at Kibo Palace alwaiz.

My husband and I stayed with 5 kids and my parents at Kibo Palace for 1 night before we headed out on safari. It was a very nice hotel with all the amenities and a great stop over for our big group. I wouldn't recommend it for a long stay because it is kind of a generic business type hotel but for one or two nights, it is a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Arusha.

Kibo Palace Hotel was an amazing place to stay, my son and I stayed there for two weeks, everything was amazing especially the staff. Can't talk highly enough of the service especially from Jimmy, Valerian, Kennedy and Midjimbul (sorry about spelling)! Would defenitaley go there again when we return to Arusha.
