It's an excellent place to relax and chill out. Amazing location right by the beach, really friendly staff, excellent facilities and service.....but the food you get is something you will never forget....it's really amazing and we ended up taking photos of it as the presentation was that great and it's really reasonably priced as well. Even on a budget you...

We have just returned from Tanzania and spent two nights at Kilima Kidogo Guesthouse. We had originally planned to spend three nights there but left after two. We did decide to go at one of the hottest and most humid times of the year, so that was our mistake, but there were several things which would have been very nice...

We stayed here just after New Year's for 4 nights. Our reservation was made through our tour operator, East Africa Safari Company. We weren't thrilled with the location that the tour operator had booked us into in Stone Town so we weren't sure what to expect, but as soon as we arrived we were pleasantly surprised on all fronts.

I spent an idyllic week at Kilima Kidogo! Having done my homework, the guesthouse satisfied all my expectations - beautiful setting, clean, cool rooms, comfortable (huge) bed, friendly staff, good food - it would be hard to find anything worth complaining about. I received a warm welcome from everyone on my arrival - even down to a valentines card from...

We stayed around new years eve, it was nice - clean and comfortable BB. On Dec 31st at 10:30pm they ran out of beer! The south-african owners are almost too friendly (extremely sweet) and have a hard time to accept if you don´t want to join i.e. a sunset ride. The meals are way below normal quantity but very good....

First off this place is very pricy for what you get. When we booked we were quoted 70 US per person per night. That's high even by Tanzanian standards. What do you get for that? We got what they call a comfortable double room. It's a decent enough sized room with a queen sized bed and attached bath in the...
