“GORGEOUS”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I really cant find any words. The VIEW spectacular. The food delicous. Service very good. The room was a palace itself.
Ok we just came from a 3 days safari in Serengeti and had slept in tents with fire cooked food by our cook. But this hotel is the best I ever had.

Room Tip: We had one a bit away from the main house

A nice posh hotel, nestled right at the top of the crater, provides amazing views (not animals, but of the landscape)

The hotel is luxurious -nice spacious rooms - with all the amenities (incl a hot water bottle), a pool (its too cold to swim tho), a nice bar...
The restaurant is fantastic - large buffet, amazing spread, delicious, ample for vegetarians.

The service is prompt, helpful and with a smile

Its a large hotel tho, so do expect crowd, but all in all quite what u need after a long days of safari

We stayed for one night. The room was excellent and the view of crater from room was marvellous. A must stay when you are visiting the Crater. Staff was polite and the services were very good. The hotel is very good in all aspects.

Positive points:
+ great swimming pool with beautiful view on the crater ( great at the sunset time;)).
+ beautiful dinning and aperetif areas
+ most of the rooms have a beautiful view
+ nice breakfast buffet

Negative points:
- the rooms were not really beautiful because they seems to be quite old. However beds are clean.
- bathrooms are big but the shower was not really clean ( we found a hair elastic from previous guests).
- dinner was ok but we have eaten better dinners during our safari ( we see that it is a big lodge). However, it was ok. Thats not a real negative point.

I recommend this hotel for the nice place with the beautiful view on the crater and the nice swimming pool and lobby, dinning and aperetif area;)

the main reason we chose sopa nogorongoro was for having the great views over crater egde,
even though the animals seem tiny down below in the crater it is awesome to have that view especially at dusk,
the lodge is great with nice restaurant, just before dinner time they had a lovely masai warriors dance, it is an amazing performance of traditional dance and stamina to jump the way they do.

The location is excellant to give you access to crater early in morning as for the first two hours we were alone without cars, we came upon a pair of mating lions just on the road and had 20 mins to view them alone, once the other cars arrived they moved into some bush cover,
We also seen rhino in early morning

The Lodge's highlight is the incredible view you have from the main lobby, swimming pool and garden. It is breathtaking. The restaurant is also a very cozy place despite the food isn't that amazing. Rooms are good, a little bit old fashioned but quite clean. Overall it's a nice place to go, but has less the feeling of a Safari adventure than other places we've been to. You will feel comfortable and have all you need, though.
