I am glad my first experience of Moshi and indeed Tanzania were not the real deal. Many roads in Moshi are one way. Sadly for our driver there is no road sign to say which way until too late. We were approached by a man claiming to be a local official demanding to get in the vehicle. We strongly refused even when he came to the hotel. Even the local police advise DON'T let anyone in come what may. We then arrived and a slight disappointment was there being no nets in the room. However there was GOOD Air Conditioning and rooms were clean and nice.
The breakfast was fine and we eat in the restaraunt. They did not quite get the idea of pizzae and chips, putting the chips on the pizza to cook it. It was however nice. The following day we asked for someone to take us to Merangu Falls. He took us there and then to Mt Kilimanjaro. Stayed with us over half the day and was delighted to get the equivalent of 5 dollars. The falls were lovely and three of us, myself and two Kenyans paid less than the equivalent of £6 in total to be shown around. The falls guide was unrushed and well worth the tip.
One tip. If entering Tanzania from Kenya ask at Immigration for money exchange on the border. A local man comes on a motorbike and you get a far better deal than in town.
At the hotel a very friendly security guard at our request woke us in the morning when there was a clear view of the mountain. Took us to top floor for great views.
