This hotel is conveniently located near the airport, 5 minutes drive and you are in this beautiful lodge I loved the garden the Masai style huts and the staff were amazing always ready to assist with a big smile. I would have given this lodge a better rating if it was a little less pricey, but for the price they...

We had booked this hotel as it was close to the airport and used it as a day room before flying back to the US on an late evening flight. We had to wait 30 minutes for them to pick us up and return us later on that evening at the airport. Reason given was that they only had one...

We stayed at Kia Lodge for 1 night before a fly-in trip to the Serengeti. Transfers from and to Kia airport were smooth; we had a nice dinner and a good night’s sleep – which is all what we have been looking for. The gardens are beautiful and, given the proximity to the airport, surprisingly serene (loved the birds). On...

We chose this hotel for a single night due to its proximity to the airport. The $144 USD resident rate for a double room seemed excessive from the start, compared with our experience of other hotels in Tanzania. However we were soon to regret making the booking. The lunch menu consisted of a choice of a burger or a chicken...

We arrived late into Kilimanjaro and were leaving early the next morning for our safari so our travel company recommended the Kia lodge. A good choice. The staff were friendly and the cottages were sufficient for an overnight stay. The pool is on a slight hill with a large deck offering views of the mountain (weather permitting). The water in...

This resort is quite nice for a stay before and after your Tanzania trip. The food was just ok, the service acceptable. The rooms were nice and the grounds very attractive.

The KIA Lodge sends a driver to the airport to pick you up and it takes about 5 minutes to get to the lodge. The lodge rooms are stand alone huts that are comfortable and clean.

After the visit to Ngorongoro Crater I stayed at KIA Lodge near to Kilimanjaro Airport. The staffs were very friendly and both check-in and check-out process were fast and efficient. My room was big enough and beautifully furnished. The food is good with many fruits available. You could also use a nice swimming pool if interested to get some exercise...
