Great experience in this nice hotel with nice terras overlooking the lake. Food is good and rooms clean and comfortabele. The small area for breakfast is smelly and sometimes there are a lot of flies.

kigoma is kind of stuck between super luxury hotels and some too basic loacl guesthouses. i think coastview is a good thing in the middle - affordable price (40000+tsh a night) and pretty decent amenities. location is a bif far and taxi drivers will charge extra. however, if or some reason you need to stay a night IN TOWN (if...

Coast View has a wonderful overlook over the bay creating magical sunsets every night. The hotel staff is very friendly, if you have travelled in Africa much, then Coast View will be a wonderfully relaxing place for affordable prices. If not, then yes food takes a few minutes and things move a bit slower, but I found it the perfect... More

My husband and i took the 3 day train ride from Dar to Kigoma. When we arrived we decided to stay at the Coast View Hotel and it was great! The rooms were big, clean and comfortable with mosquito net. The buffet breakfast was good. Not extensive, but good. For $20 usd per night including breakfast, you can't go wrong!... More

We had a very bad experience in this hotel, because we could not get any sleep, because of the noise at the bar the whole night, where some drunk members of the staff were looking football at the television, and making a lot of noise. At midnight we asked them to stop the noise, but they did not care. They... More

The cleanliness, air-condition and nice restaurant has been pointed out by many. Standard rooms are a bit small with small beds, but OK. During our 6 nights their WiFi did not work. Wanted a more fancy dinner and went to Lake Tanganyika hotel, but it turned out that Coast View's food was better. But I do not recommend the Pizza.... More

Good value, good staff, good food, good services. The only thing excellent about the place is the stunning view from the carousel outdoors dining room, which is the ideal sunset dinner location. Whilst the water, electricity and wifi are not always functional, the most noteworthy aspect is perhaps that things here are really quite good. For its price range that... More

The rooms are great, the wifi works well most of the time, the view is nice and the price is very good. The only thing that lets this place down is the bar/restaurant staff. It's not even poor service (We're backpackers and don't really care that much about service) but they were just rude. After asking for a glass to... More

Spacious, clean, comfortable room. All self contained. Interesting included breakfast, but a lot of choice and eggs made to order. Hot water and good water pressure. Friendly and helpful staff. Great view from the hotel but a bit of a hike up. Bodas are recommended. Good food and free wifi. Very very good value for money.
