Clean, beautiful hotel, with a nice garden. Relatively friendly service and with good food in the restaurant. A bit away from Moshi, but on the other hand closer to the Machame route entrance. The only thing I missed a bit was airconditioning in the room; with +30C in the day, it takes a while into the night before temperatures go... More

I decided to spend a Valentine's weekend with my wife at the hotel. I made reservation through Protea website (www.proteahotels.com) and got confirmation email. On arrival, the receptionist didn't find my reservation in their system and told me the only way to confirm reservation is by paying full in cash. The receptionist completely disregarded my printed copy of confirmation email... More

I will make the Aishi Protea hotel my Moshi base from now on. Yes, it is more remotely located - so if you want to be in town then other options in either Moshi or Arusha might be preferable - but the hotel is great, the staff all very helpful and the food excellent. The welcome drink and face towel... More

I went on a trip to Africa with my eighteen year old son. Thank you for a pleasant stay before and after a successful walk to the summit of Kilimanjaro. Clean, nice food, nice giftshop (good prices and quality) and a very friendly staff.

The best way to describe this hotel is "scenic". serene views and surrounded by lush greenery on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro. Stayed just one night in March 2013. As it was the low season , we were the only guests at the Hotel and we enjoyed our stay quite much. The staff was nowhere to be seen and we... More

A lovely hotel, with beautiful surroundings. Our rooms were beautiful and very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. I don't think you will find a better hotel for your Kilimanjaro climb. We really appreciated the luxury when we came down from the mountain. Breakfast was great and the rest of the menu was ok.

First place we stayed after arriving in Tanzania. We arrived late but the staff was expecting us and kept the kitchen and dining room open for us. Food was good. We enjoyed each meal. We stayed there prior to a safari (versus Kilimanjaro). The staff was great, very pleasant and very accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The grounds... More

We paid $160 a night. The accommodations weren't BAD, but for what we paid this was way over-priced. There was only 1 other gentleman staying at the entire hotel when we were there. Hotel is also really out of the way of the city. One other thing that really annoyed me: They had elephant tusks in a few different places... More

I think that this hotel is set up for groups who are climbing Kilimanjaro. They didn't seem to be able to give me much in the way of service They almost tried to discourage me from coming. I should have taken the hint but I hoped to see the mountain. I booked and paid through Expedia and they didn't have... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Protea Hotel Aishi Machame - Country elegance on the Slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro. Situated at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, Protea Hotel Aishi is located a few kilometres from the Machame Gate where climbers commence their ascent of this most majestic mountain by way of the picturesque Machame Trail. View the permanently snow-capped peaks from the comfort of your room. Specialising in organised climbs, Protea Hotels Aishi provides all necessary tenting and equipment, as well as the most experienced guides and porters to make this unique experience a holiday always to remember. Nature walks and cultural tours around the area can also be organised by the hotel. All en-suite bedrooms are well appointed and modern, as well as all being equipped with electronic safes, mini-bar and tea/coffee making facilities. Our restaurant offers a selection of superb cuisine, where both local and international dishes can be enjoyed in the restaurant or on the terrace, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The patio provides an ideal venue for Al Fresco dining or simply enjoying the views over afternoon tea or sundowners. As the melted snow and ice from the mountain cascades down in the form of a majestic river that thunders past the grounds of the hotel, why not enjoy a picnic lunch on the banks of the river whilst nature reveals her secrets. ... more   less
