Panama Hotel Moshi
Ranked #38 of 59 Moshi B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 February 2013

My Kilimanjaro trekking package included the Panama Hotel for accommodation before/after ascending Mt Kilimanjaro. I was pleasantly surprised by the spacious rooms and, although only a bit faster than dial-up, the free WiFi. The hotel's central location makes it a good vantage point from which to get around town to make last-minute purchases for the trek. The friendly staff greeted me with a smile every time I walked through the front door! It was a pleasure to stay and would do it again. The only drawback was the food was on the expensive side compared to other local eateries.

Room Tip: No elevators - if you have a room on the 2nd floor or higher, it's good preparation for Kili!

The open roof of Panama hotel allow clients to enjoy the finest view of Mount Kilimanjaro from Moshi town .This highest free standing mountain located on latitude 2’50”-3’10”S and latitude 37’10” – 37’40E seen directly from hotel. Moreover the Panama hotel front road goes also directly to Mweka gate up to this Kilimanjaro descending routes of Machame, Umbwe and Lemosho.

Apart from having well furnished rooms with cable Television, internal phone call and secure electronic door open you will enjoy the modern restaurant and mountain breeze bar on the open roof.

I would recommend for clients to take a time and visit Panama Hotel either before Kilimanjaro climb for the sun set GPS after climb for breathtaking and evaluating great success while served well trained staff under supervisor on Hotel Manager Mr.Boniface. The wide space and open roof enhance the great view of Moshi and mountain breeze which can be accompanied by variety drink on your cerebration with climbing team or partners comfortably.

Room Tip: Room with view of mountain

First, excellent location in Moshi even if there is not a lot to do in town... We were particularly pleased by the staff : nice, smiling, perfect english speakers. We had as well some "organisation problem" (ie shuttle transfer to Nairobi after the Kilimandjaro that the agency we chose for the climb badly wanted to change) and the manager sort it out with efficency.
Regarding the room : TV, AC, good bed, toilets, shower, free wifi, large rooms... Very Good. Breakfast average to good.
We had a good dinner as well (large choice of beers :-) )

All in all, we really liked the 2 nights we spent at Panama (one before, one after the climb)

Merci, asante

We were booked into this hotel by our Kilimanjaro tour operator and stayed for two nights before climbing Kili and one night afterwards. The hotel is new and the rooms and restaurant are nice and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful and i'd particularly like to mention the tiny cleaning lady who attempted to go for the biggest rucksak to carry up the stairs both times we checked in ! There's no lift so just consider it training for Kili ! The location is great, right in the centre of Moshi, just around the corner from the Kilimanjaro Native Co-operative Union who do great pizza's coffee and milkshakes

The hotel itself is new and everything is clean. We have some difficulties with hot water but soon we figured it out that you should wait 10-15 minutes prior to use the shower. The staff are friendly and helpful, and serve dinner upon arrival. The hotel is very central and works fine to walk around. The restaurant inside the hotel is very nice (considering Moshi standards), the food is really good, specially Panana Chicken and the Milanese Tilapia. All the rooms have TV and AC. We arranged a day trip to Kilimanjaro with a nice tour company called Kilimanjaro Brothers Adventure www.kilimanjaroclimbingadventure.com (the owner is called Joseph and he is a really nice guy).
If you need a friendly functional hotel in the city, this is your choice.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 2nd and 4th floor, the 4th floor is quitter and nicer but wireless internet doesn...
