Very close to the airport
The KIA lodge is literally minutes from the airport of Kilimanjaro. Luckely it is not a very busy airport so you don't have disturbed nights by the airplanes.
The lodges has several cabins and you can see the mountain from many windows or just go outside. (Unless, like us, you arrive in the dark and leave very early)
The breakfast was a buffet with very western dishes like fried eggs, bacon and so on.
The gardens are lovely and the swimming pool on top of a hill has great views. At night you can sit at the campfire and have a drink.
