A very charming lodge nice gardens and good breakfast and dinner. Our room had 3 beds very comfortable. We were on Safari and this was one of the nice lodges we stayed in. It's in a town by the name of Karatu Tanzania, Africa.

我们四个朋友一起去的,特别温馨,性价比超高,我们后悔只定了一天。黄瓜汤超好喝。我们去的时候下雨了,花园在雨里特别漂亮。有个小酒吧,先喝一杯然后去晚餐。第二天我们去火山,酒店给我们包了丰盛的午餐盒,打开的时候我们都要哭了。我好喜欢这个地方,推荐给所有人。This place is amazing. Service, dinner, bed, quality and price are just perfect. The cucumber soup totally blew my mind away. The garden was lovely and people are so helpful and attentive.

I've been staying at the Crater Rim View Inn for nine years and I love it there. I was just there this week and they have upgraded it beautifully. Doorson the bathroom in the room and a "granite-like" counter in the bathroom, nice towels, a tile stall for the shower, new construction and landscaping in the garden. It's a great...

The Crater Rim View has an inviting name, but I would say a bit of false advertising. The hotel/B&B is neither on the Ngorongoro Crater Rim, not is it in view of the crater. In fact, the "view" is terrible. Never the less, Crater Rim View is a nice place to stay. The rooms are clean, the service staff is...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Crater Rim View Inn two nights while on Safari. The Inn is perfect for individuals on a budget, who enjoy great cuisine and friendly staff. The Inn, although not luxurious, is clean and well kept. We felt self and taken care of! I would highly recommend it!

The hotel is close to everything in town---bars, shops, restaurants. Staff is nothing special i.e. they are adequate but don't go the extra mile. The food is really good and the chef tries really hard to ensure all guests get what they want. All in all, it's clean and sufficient, but nothing special.

Very nice and warm welcome, friendly and smiling staff, very nice garden, clean but modest rooms. Very good local cuisine, however I recommend that the hotel buys some shufflings to keep the served food warm. Unfortunately the wifi did not work when we stayed there. The TV with Tanzanian poor quality TV series at the bar lounge was a bit...

“Supposedly, good rooms are nearer the parking lot (TV, upstairs), not the ones near the bar and restaurant. I disagree. All are average.”
