There are many hotel choices in Kilimanjaro, but whether you are here to climb or simply to enjoy the atmosphere, you may want to stay closest to the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

The main reason for tourism in Kilimanjaro is trekking the mountain. Though Kilimanjaro can be climbed any time of the year, there are rainy seasons that make this excursion more difficult and dangerous. Many travelers avoid Kilimanjaro during April to May and from November until mid-December. Possibly the best months to enjoy a journey in Kilimanjaro are during January through March and in October, when clear skies and quiet atmospheres reign. Kilimanjaro hotel rates during the rainy seasons can range from $24 to $44 per night, while booking a conveniently located room during the peak seasons can cost $44 up to $130 daily.
Cheap hotels in Kilimanjaro are available even during the most crowded times of year. Stay in nearby Moshi, not far from Moshi Cooperative University and the Sport Stadium, at Kilimanjaro Homes and Camps for just $15 a night, including a shuttle ride from the airport, free parking if you've rented a car, and a free breakfast. A shared kitchen, bathroom, and lounge add to your convenience at this bed and breakfast. A tennis court and pool adds to your enjoyment, plus free use of the hotel's bicycles.
Even if you are planning on making the adventurous climb to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, you'll love knowing a four-star Kilimanjaro hotel awaits you upon your descent. The Kaliwa Lodge is situated at the foothills of the mountain in Moshi, a short ride away from the Machame Gate entrance to Kilimanjaro National Park. This hotel features an on-site restaurant and bar and a wooden deck that overlooks the Weru Weru Rift and Forest.
