I stayed here for one night, right before doing a 1 day hike up Mount Kilimanjaro. It's perfectly located for such an expedition as it's only a 40 minute drive to the gate. This is by far better than starting your journey from Arusha, as that would mean having to leave around 4.30 - 5.00 in the morning.. From House of Westkili you can leave as late as 6.30 and still be in time for the gate opening.
Besides the practicality, it's a please staying here! Abraham (owner and former guide) is a treat in his own! Full of great stories, humor and most importantly; great hospitality! The lodge is clean, comfortable and very large! By far the largest rooms I have encountered in Tanzania! ;)
Food is great and the staff very friendly. Highly recommended!
