“Boutique hotel catering to Kili climbers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

Plenty of capable staff willing to meet your every need. Friendly and courteous. Rooms are basic but very clean and tidy. Meals are adequate but not flash. Prices are reasonable and after a climb the foot massage was a bonus. We booked via Kibo Adventures of Moshi who also organised our climb. The whole experience was excellent.

Stayed February 2014, traveled with friends

Stayed here last week when I was climbing kili. I stayed in the huts outside and the rooms inside. The outdoor huts were okay, a few lizards were inside but it was clean. It had aircon which was real nice. The indoor rooms looked nice, with a small tv, two beds, en-suite etc. No aircon as standard though, just a fan. The mattresses are just foam and weren't quite long enough for me. Friendly staff and free continental breakfast. The pizza's they make are amazing. There's a main road outside which is really, really loud.

I and my husband often stay at Keys hotel in Moshi when we come to Moshi and Arusha to do our shopping. Staff is very friendly, accommodation your needs and the hotel has got an nice feeling about it. .An old fashioned hotel. A swimming pool which is good and relax around. Breakfast is good and dinner is reasonably priced. The hotel is situated in a quite area.

We stayed here before and after climbing Kilimanjaro. It seemed expensive at $90 but this seems to be the going "tourist" rate in town. The rooms are decent and clean with hot water. The WiFi and cable TV were down the entire stay, though they assured us that the technician was coming. The women at the front desk are friendly. The restaurant staff struggles with English which makes it difficult to order. The pool makes it a nice place to relax.

This is the hotel we stayed in before and after Kilimanjaro climb.
Staff are wonderful-very polite, very helpful, accommodating and always with warm smiles. We left our non mountain bag here for the climb. We were welcomed back at the end of the climb with a refreshing glass of watermelon juice and our bag ready to be carried to our room. The garden and the pool are well kept. There is a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The room is very basic, clean but it has a working hot shower-an important thing after 6 days camping on the mountain. The only minor negative is the restaurant service-slow and the Wifi coverage is limited. The pizza-delicious, fresh oven baked. Overall, perfect hotel for climbers.

This small hotel was the ideal base from which to embark on our Kilimanjaro climb and then a safari. Our tour company, Karibu Adventures, arranged for our stay. The staff and management were very friendly and accommodating and our private hut was clean and comfortable. We felt at ease leaving our extra luggage in their secure storage while we were gone. When we returned from our climb, one of the staff offered to clean our muddy boots for about $1.20 USD and we also took advantage of the hotel's laundry service which was pricey but well worth it.

The room rate is very reasonable and the hotel's restaurant serves good inexpensive food (especially the wood oven baked pizza) and cheap cold beer. My husband appreciated the large screen TV in the bar which had an all soccer channel running all the time. Locals and guests gathered to watch the matches daily with plenty of cheering. A full breakfast, with eggs to order, sausage, bacon and all the cereal, breads and fruit you can eat, is included in the room rate. Free wi- fi (when it's working) is available in and around the front lobby.

Lovely well kept gardens and a large pool add to the pleasure of the experience. It is also a great place to meet other climbers and to share stories and tips before and after your Kili climb. The hotel is located within walking distance of banks and shops. One disadvantage, more to the city than to the hotel, was that it was not safe to go out after dark, thus we ate almost all of our meals at the hotel.

We definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Moshi, especially if your trip is to include a Kili climb.

Room Tip: The hotel offers regular inn-style rooms and also has private huts. Staying in a hut allows you to...

stayed recently with family. Expectations were modest but not quite met. Basic hote and basically clean and clean sheets etc, but half the lights in our rooms were missing. Electricity rather unstable anyway. Food in the restuarant was disappointing-to-poor and service positively glacial. Butter strictly rationed for some reason. but endless tea & coffee. Best feature was probably the bar with a wide range of soft drinks and beer all served cold and with good cheer. Location so-so. Atmosphere in the hotel generally good depending on whether people sumitted, or not!
