This hotel and the area it is located in has a marvelous old touch about it. It is very well tended and feels welcoming. It is clean and makes you feel relaxed. It is very quiet and there are ample places for relaxing in the outside to enjoy the breeze

I stayed here with family overnight for an early morning visit to the Chagga caves and the Ndoro Waterfalls both in Marangu. Booking via the phone was seamless. I was advised to book two rooms (suites) for three people but the suites are large enough to accommodate three people each. Each suite had a large living room, a bedroom, a... More

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.

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.

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).

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
