I enjoyed my stay. So beautiful. Remember to carry a sweater or light jacket as there are pretty strong breezes. Good food. Quickly learned to stick to the local cuisine. Whatever you do, DO NOT order the lollipop chicken! I would definitely go back to the Kolping Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the new rooms on the first floor

This hotel has an amazing view of the Bukoba bay. We witnessed some spectacular sunsets from our balcony!

The restaurant is quite good and has a lot on offer, probably also because many of the middle-class locals or businessmen who travel through dine here.

The staff are also friendly and accommodating. We met the manager/owner who was very nice to us and ensured that his guests were having a good stay.

Basically a good hotel in an area where there isn't much choice.

The Reception is good and the meals that are prepared by professional chefs.There Restaurant is poorly designed,especially the ceiling that was poorly placed.The bird's droppings from above sounds a total menace to the Guests.I could not imagine some pieces of wood falling into my wine!The service team are good even though they lack some service techniques.

Room Tip: I liked the new rooms at the first floor (Bukoluxe),since they are spacious and have a good aerial v...

It is situated on the escarpment about 2 kilometres from the centre of town with the Walkguard opposite and the Balamaga up the road.
The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms clean. The layout of the furniture in some of the bedrooms was bizarre. Some rooms have a balcony with views over the lake.
We have stayed here on two occassions and generally there are few other guests. Breakfast is very good for nontourist Tanzania with lovely home baked rolls.
There is a varied menu and the food is good.
As with the Walkguard the party music from town does not disturb ones sleep. One can use the swimming pool at the Walkguard for a small fee.
2010 prices: Single room 30,000Tsh, double/twin room 50,000Tsh
We prefered to stay here rather than the Walkguard.
