We used the lodge as a place to stay on the way out of the bush, and before heading to the airport. Many others were just getting in from their... read more flights and used as a place to stay overnight before starting their excursions - it's great for both. We were able to eat, grab a drink, shower and relax before our flight which really made a big difference. The pool was fantastic too - great way to cool down and relax. Walking trails - well maybe a bit of an overstatement as there really aren't walking trails. But food was good, and people were super nice - we would definitely stay here again. My only "complaint" is that they were watering the grass and plants - in a place that has serious water issues, I'd prefer that they were more eco-friendly.

I was fortunate to stay at this terrific hotel (which is well situated for the Kilimanjaro airport) three times in a ten day period, and I could not recommend it... read more more highly. It is an oasis of calm efficiency, the Manager (Abuu) and his team (particularly Everest, Happy, and Shaffi, and all the restaurant staff), were so welcoming, attentive, helpful and courteous, and all facilities (including the pool and change rooms) were spotlessly clean and tidy. The airport shuttle was most appreciated, and the provision of a work space with internet was also. Thank you all for providing a really lovely home away from home and for such kind and generous service.

Lala salama at Planet Lodge - We spent one night at Planet Lodge before flying next morning to Seronera to begin our safari stay. As others have mentioned, the rooms are well appointed, and the... read more small “ private” verandah is lovely. All staff were helpful and friendly; we appreciated the attention of Paul and trainee Kevin at the bar where we enjoyed a chilled bottle of bubbly, and a bowl of popcorn.
We had eaten plenty during our visit with friends in Nairobi so chose not to have dinner. After a good sleep, the buffet breakfast provided us with enough variety to keep us satisfied for hours.
We would not hesitate to return. Asante sana to Planet Lodge staff.
