Ignore the dates in the when did you travel! TA doesnt allow you to go back far! I travelled to Kenya and Tanzania in December 2011 for a 3 week holiday! After spending the first four days on Zanzibar, we travelled to Moshi via Dar Es Salaam where we parted company (they wanted to climb, I wanted to Safari). We...

I was brought to this hotel by the taxi driver, assuaging my initial concerns about the place by saying that he knew the place well and always brought his clients here! Things didn't go well from the moment I got to the reception and greeted Aneeta/ Anita there. After showing me the rooms and answering my questions, she said the...

At first, the service was not welcoming at all. Then the room was very small (the door hits the bed when it opens). A shower longer than five minutes completely floods the bathroom. And by night the room is the kingdom of roaches, they're even stuck inside the mosquito net. Also, the breakfast was no good. I strongly would not...

In this hotel you realy get the service as much as you pay for. The rooms are clean and big enough. Also bathroom looks like european. You have WiFi at the reception. And it's close to the main bus station and city center.

We stayed here 1 night before our 3 day safari and 1 night afterwards. The rooms were very standard/simple but clean and so were the beds. The mosquito nets had a few holes but were repaired with tape that did the job. The location is perfect, right in the middle of Moshi centre. The IndoItalian right across the street serves...

The room was not bad. Of course the net had holes, you get used to that and thank god I had my own travel net with me. The bathroom was clean but the water stayed cold. Did not matter since the weather was hot enough. The staff is not too friendly, except for one or two. The very simple breakfast...

A friend and me stayed here for several weeks while we were working in Moshi. The service was terrible, and so was the breakfast.

My sister and I stayed here before and after our Kilimanjaro trek and would definitely not recommend it. The night we stayed before our trek was acceptable, though we were put on the 3rd floor which they are renovating and our room was practically in a building site, though the room itself was fairly smart (apart from the gaping hole...
