"Airport Planet Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 11 Oct 2022
"We stayed at Airport Planet Lodge for an evening while waiting for an early-morning flight out of Kilimanjaro Airport.

Great location, only 10-15 minutes from the airport with views of Mt. Kilimanjaro on the way.

Perfect place for a quick night at the start or end of your safari or Kilimanjaro hike!" See all these reviews: 8n in Tanzania

"Clean, comfortable.

Noisy exhaust fan.

Ongoing issues with charging of apple devices - fast charges won’t charge, only USB to lightening.

Charging issue only relevant to Australian devices it would seem." See all these reviews: 10n in Tanzania

"Handy for the international airport"

0 night Arrived 10 Nov 2020
"This is really handy for arriving or heading back home from Kilimanjaro airport as it is only 10 minutes away.

The hotel collects you and delivers you back. We had a day room and a lovely surprise was an arrangement of petals on the bed saying Happy Anniversary. The rooms are modern, well appointed and with a private verandah. The food is limited but good. Staff as everywhere very friendly and helpful.

We were the only guests." See all these reviews: 16n in Tanzania

"Great place for short stay"

1 night Arrived 11 Feb 2020
"The Planet Lodge is only 10 minutes for Kilimanjaro Airport and thus a great place to spend a few hours before our long night flight.
The air-conditioned room was spacious ,with an excellent large walk-in shower and external balcony looking out over well kept
gardens.
We looked in vain for a hair drier but apart from that we had all we needed.
Lunch in the restaurant was simple and ok
There is a small curio shop but those at the airport offer a much bigger range of choice." See all these reviews: 8n in Tanzania
