Though it's a simple high-rise in the center of town, and therefore not picuresque with grounds nor swimming pool, it is still my favorite spot for a hotel in Moshi. It's new and modern and clean, and the staff is incredibly attentive. They staff is very well trained, beyond any other hotel in Moshi. There is a rooftop bar, a ground floor cafe, and a first floor restaurant. There is great air conditioning, quick hot water, a back up generator to handle the frequent power outages in Tanzania. It's by far the best hotel in Moshi in terms of staff service. The only complaint is about the wifi. Though strong, it requires constant entering of the name and password. It doesn't remember you for very long, and so you have to enter the username and password over and over again several times a day. But that's a minor complaint. I felt completely safe leaving anything in my room, the cleaning staff is terrific, and the staff will try to help you with whatever you need to make your stay comfortable.

Had a lovely stay here with friends during the Kilimanjaro Marathon weekend. The hotel is a real gem, compact and business like, very well finished and comfortable in every respect. The construction is solid, beautiful timber work, beautiful tiling and very well maintained and cleaned. The room is immaculate with a most comfortable bed and high quality linen. I loved the floor to ceiling sliding doors and looking out at night. The operative word is compact to describe the size of things in the hotel. It is a mid-priced hotel. The food was quite well executed and my top compliments go to the chef! That Tanzania magugu rice is not to be missed. Sunday Brunch and the breakfast spread were fair for the pricing. The rooftop terrace is a delightful place to catch a sundowner looking at Kilimanjaro Mountain. Beatrice the Manager is simply exceptional and leads from the front. Winifrida and Lillian in the restaurant was very attentive to our every need. Violeth is a wizard at the egg station. Regina and Primi at the front desk do their best too. Wifi is good though it was quite tedious to keep up with the password changes. This was my best say in Moshi, and yes I would stay there again.

I booked this place with a friend and we were amazed, Kibo palace is incredible. They have a well established reputation for quality at the mother hotel in Arusha. The accommodation Ofcourse is truly high quality. From the beautiful and soft bed linens to the outstanding service clearly unmatched by competitors.

My favorite part of my stay was the great service by the hotel staff. Ibrahim, Mushi, Silvester and Mohammed made our stay unforgettable. They are professional and went beyond to make sure we got all we needed to make our stay great. Far exceeding international standards. True Tanzanian hospitality.

The food served was delicious especially the popular Tanzanian dishes like ugali with chicken makange. The rooftop bar offers sweeping views of the city and the great mountain. Overall an excellent experience the price is worth especially for the great service we received. I highly recommend Kibo Palace and I know I will be staying here more when I am in Moshi.

During my two-night stay at Moshi Kibo Hotel, I found the outside noise and heat tolerable. Although breakfast was amazing, I suggest serving colder milk for cereals. The room and bathroom were very clean, and the staff were nice. Overall, I recommend this hotel for visitors planning trips to Mount Kilimanjaro and Chemka Hotspring. Moshi Kibo Hotel is a safe place, especially for solo travelers, as there is a security guard on site.

I stayed at Kibo Palace before and after my Kilimanjaro climb and it was absolutely perfect. Check in process was lightening fast thanks to Primi and Mary at the front desk. Room was spacious, bed was comfortable, water was hot, and above all, everything was so clean. The rooftop restaurant and bar were fairly priced and have a spectacular view of the mountain. Breakfast had plenty of options and all the staff were incredibly friendly.

This was the perfect place to prepare for the climb and rest after. It's conveniently located in the city center making it easy to walk to most restaurants, the Mbuyuni Market, and tour operators. I highly recommend this place and will be staying there again when I return to Moshi. Excellent job to them and their team.

Centrally located and everything was good at this hotel. The restaurant was exceptional. Delicious food and good sized portions. We enjoyed staying there and would reccomend it. There is a safe and busy high street just outside the hotel if you have time to wander.
