The Hibiscus has basic amenities but rooms are clean,comfortable, with fans and mosquito nets. It is conveniently located just outside the town, so it's quite and you can still walk to Moshi Town. The staff were all very charming and always helpful with whatever you needed.

Good little B&B to stay our first night after long flights from USA. Pretty gardens, large windows that let in the evening breezes, mosquito nets over beds, small balcony, friendly staff. Moses, the manager, took us outside the property to see the sunset on Mt. Kilimanjaro. Breakfast, outside on the patio was very nice...fruit, coffee/tea, toast and eggs.

We got in late and wanted a lower price place to stay for half a night. The Hibiscus was perfect for this. The rooms were clean and sufficient, but it was obvious things could use a bit of updating/repair. The hot water was sporadic because they use these shower heads that heat the water as it goes through (very inefficient...

I stayed at Hibiscus for one night with a group enroute to Dar es Salaam. We arrived late and the staff welcomed us warmly. The motel is cute and homely. We requested a meal and they prepared one. The food was average, but probably due to the late evening. The manager got our room requirements wrong and that lead to...

I spent 7 weeks at Hibiscus and it was really lovely. They do an excellent breakfast included in the price (the pancakes are great) and the rooms were all clean and had en suites! Hot water was a bit temperamental but that was no big deal. The internet was pretty reasonable for Moshi also. It's about 15minutes walk out of...

We stayed at the Hibiscus because our Safari guide recommended it and it was perfect for us. We were looking for a place that would fit our budget and we only needed to stay one night, then go on a safari, and say one more night when we got back before we headed to Zanzibar. Our room had a nice...

When I first turned up here I wasn't too happy as it is down a residential street which looked like it had no street lights, however I want to make clear that it is a great place to stay because wherever you are in moshi you have to get a taxi after dark anyway. This place was clean and we...
