With a view of Kilimanjaro from our room, this was a great start of our family trip. Nelson was a great help before we arrived, adding room after room as the family figured out their plans. Once there, we enjoyed the birds right off our balcony - the marabou storks are amazing! The room was clean, the shower was hot,... More

This a simple, affordable nice place to stay. Rooms are simple, but clean. There are two restaurants on the grounds. This is a good place for teams. It's in a good location, and the grounds are beautiful, and the staff is very helpful.

Its a good place. Its a christian hotel so they do not serve hard drinks. I enjoyed their Nyama choma. I have been here numerous times over the years whenever I visit Moshi, Tanzania. Their rooms are clean. The staff are quite friendly. I would return here any other time. The view of mount kilimanjaro was so good from my... More

We stayed as part of a group of 14 in the annexe, which is over the road from the hotel but we ate at the hotel. Booked buffets for our evening meals as it was easier than all ordering separately. Food was plentiful and enjoyable. Beds very comfortable. Staff especially Nelson helpful and attentive, organising travel and taxis etc. On... More

A good basic hotel, clean and in a nice location with garden and restaurant. Good views of Mount Kilimanjaro when it's clear. There is a computer room but the internet wasn't working when i was there. Breakfast was good and the hotel restaurant food was also good. The service in the restaurant was good when it was quiet but slow... More

This is not a hostel but a basic hotel. My room had a balcony and a view of Killi (if it would have been clear). I found the staff very accommodating, particularly Nelson who found me a plug adapter for my cell and arranged a driver for me (Amini). Unlike another single women who reported an issue with a hotel... More

Excellent nyama choma (BBQ meat). Nice cappuccino. Beautiful garden to eat your lunch in. THERE IS NO ALCOHOL HERE. Which is a huge pity because the meat would go so well with a beer. And the beer garden is lost without a beer. The secret to this place is to get absolutely ruined before coming and then head to a... More

I had a lovely time with the staff, the rooms are okay. The facilities were not made clear to me, there was a lot I had to figure out myself. My staying also was overshadowed by a guide, which was recommended by the reception(as is advised everywhere in africa) who ripped me off and threatened me. I asked them especially... More
