I stayed at this hotel before and after my trip up Kilimanjaro. We were greeted by a group of wonderful smiling faces who were so enthusiastic and excited for our climbing expedition. Innocent, the receptionist, greeted us with fresh juice and cold towels. Lovely service! Room was lovely with a fantastic view of Kilimanjaro. Every room has a balcony and the shower has hot water. There is also a bar on the top floor serving drinks if you need. The restaurant provided a great selection of food that you had to order in advance. Great hotel and I looked forward to the facilities after a long trek up the mountain!

Such a warm welcome to Moshi, after a long flight and to be welcomed so warm heartedly was such a wonderful experience. This hotel helps fund an orphanage, which I’m sad to say I did not research or really grasp that information before I got there. I feel as if I’ve made new friends with the biggest hearts that will last a lifetime. I hope I will be able to visit again soon. If you have questions about rooms or lodging please e mail me - put Stella Marie in subject line please.

Not only were we treated like the king and queen of the palace, we also learned how our business helped so many local children! This is such a wonderful, beautiful hotel with an incredible view of Mt. Kilimanjaro, an amazing garden where they pick and serve fresh fruits and veggies daily, and a brilliant team who are excited to surprise and delight you! If you have children then will love making new friends with the children at school nearby, if you love animals you’ll relish in the hornbills and monkeys visiting you daily, and if you are seeking romance you’ll be wonderfully surprised at the creative ways your bed is dressed every day, and how intimate each room feels. We can’t wait to come back and visit you all again soon!
