Great, quiet location only a 5,000 shilling cab ride into Moshi. Clean hotel with a friendly and helpful management and staff. Nice bar to sit around and swap summit stories. The breakfast buffet is very nice. The dinner buffet isn’t bad but the meat is some dishes is very tough (but tough meat seems to be a Kilimanjaro specialty) and the same food is served each night. Dining room service is great by Tanzanian standards.

I would highly recommend this hotel for those climbing Kili as a base before and after your climb.

Room Tip: Although I stayed in the bungalows, I found the wi-fi in the villa lobby (behind the bar) to be stro...

I stayed here before and after the Kilimanjaro climb. It is a nice hotel and the staff cannot do enough for you, the comments about lack of hot water are true at certain parts of the day but when we were there it was mid 30's so a cool shower didn't really matter. The food was good and there was free WiFi in reception but it was the slowest ever but I could e-mail some photographs home. The bar is lovely to relax in and prices for everything although more than in town (5,000sch Taxi ride away, don't forget to barter with the Taxi drivers) are far cheaper than the UK. Overall compared to what else is avaialable you would not be dissapointed.

Room Tip: 104 and 105 are in the main buiding and spacious, the bungalows behind reception are also nice

I stayed at Sal Salinero for a few days before and after my Kilimanjaro climb. The staff were really friendly and made every effort to make my trip an enjoyable one. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and the food was delicious, although it did take a little longer than I had anticipated but the meals were freshly prepared so this is to be expected i suppose. I spent time relaxing in the gardens and by the pool which were both very clean and well presented. All in all a thoroughly wonderful experience.

Room Tip: The individual bungalows are particularly wonderful!

I stayed at Sal Salinero after climbing Kilimanjaro and it was a welcome relief to find a very well appointed room with ensuite shower and toilet, relaxing gardens and a small swimming pool.

The outdoor bar area is a great place to celebrate your summit success with a few beers.

The food in the restaurant was good albeit the service a little slow but then again it is Tanzania.

Free Wifi was available around the garden area and in communal areas.

Having stayed at the Keys hotel before my climb, Sal Salinero was by far much nicer surroundings to relax your weary limbs.

We stayed here for 3 seperate nights during a Kili, safari and beach holiday in Tanzania. Some of the problems we encountered were: no hot water for shower after Kili climb, no plug for basin, no milk for tea in the room, no coffee in the room, noisy night with gardener watering plants with a bucket outside our room for hours, dirty blankets, security guards making noise at night, bright lights on the whole night shining into bedroom, no bottled water in room, booked packed breakfast not prepared for us, really bad breakfast and poor dinner. So taking into consideration electricity cuts and the like we still got better service on the Kili climb our of a tent and one plate gas stove. Pleasant reception staff.
