Very nice and restful base for both before and after a climb on Kilimanjaro. Clean, tidy with good food and friendly staff. Beautiful gardens well tended too, to wander or just sit by the pool. Would stay here again.

This Hotel is very nice for all people. At same, it is very good starting point for Mount Kilimanjaro climbers who go for Machame route. Weather is always cool, sometimes very cold especially from October to December. The staff are friendly and highly qualified. As it is VN located under the showers of Mount Kilimanjaro, even those who are not... More

Myself and 3 friends stayed here for one night in February. We are all experienced travellers and have stayed in hotels all over the world. But this was a first. We've never been held prisoner by one. We booked via Expedia. Arrived and everything seemed to work, albeit to an entirely average level. The rooms were fine if you like... More

I stayed here with 3 colleagues on 18 February 2015. After a pleasant stay (comfortable room, average food, poor wifi) i went to check out the next day. Unfortunately Expedia had not sent the hotel confirmation of payment. The manager on duty Jimmy Jackal (AKA Jimmy the Jackal) then proceeded to keep us prisoner in the hotel for 4 hours,... More

This lovely hotel is around 30 minutes from the Machame Gate where one of the Kilimanjaro routes start. The hotel has beautiful gardens and is situated in banana and coffee plantations. The rooms are lovely and clean and comes with a mini-bar, TV, coffee station and fans - unfortunately no air-conditioning. There are also no mosquito nets, but they do... More

I stayed here for one night during a work site visit. The grounds are beautiful and quiet. The place is well-kept and the rooms are clean. I had a room on the third floor and the view was nice. Wifi does not make it to all rooms, but you get it at the bar and lobby area. Breakfast is plentiful... More

I recently spent 4 nights in this hotel before and after my Kili climb. The hotel itself is absolutely gorgeous, clean room, tons of hot water in garden surroundings and stunning pool. The staff went out of their way to make me welcome and the food was out of this world. I will definitely be coming back to this hotel... More

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
