Stumbled onto Honey Badger through a chance encounter with a fellow Irishman whom referred HB very highly. HB is a nice getaway and we found it good place to go to recharge our batteries after spending 6 days on Kili. Rooms were beautifully traditional yet comfortable, the public areas where tranquil and clean and reassuring to see the whole Sustainable... More

This is a very comfortable hotel, with friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. It is a bit out of town, but the compound is quiet and shady. The food was delicious. It is a nice place for families with a big pool, resident monkeys and lots of space to play. Only downside- I couldn't get the wifi to work.

We absolutely loved our stay in Honey Badger and if we are ever in the area again we will without a doubt stay here. Joseph, Vera and the rest of the staff were unbelievably helpful and friendly and immediately made us feel welcome. When we arrived in Moshi, unfortunately there had been a problem with the water in the room... More

Yet again I returned to Honey Badger and it never fails to enchant me. Each time there are little touches to improve this peaceful and welcoming oasis. The staff are so welcoming and the food seems to get better each time. It is such a clever mix of tasts and cultures. This time, I managed some time out and their... More

Great value. We got more than we expected for the price. The grounds are lovely and the rooms are charming. All of the staff are incredible. Staying here will give you a taste of Africa in a relaxed environment. Also would recommend any of the pizzas!

We spent 3 nights here and it was very nice. The rooms are spacious and clean with 4-poster beds with draped mosquito nets. Bathroom is clean and functional. Geckos in the room help keep the mosquitos away :-) The outdoor area is well kept with a large pool that is meticulously kept clean. Lots of sun chairs around it. Food... More
