I stayed here before and after going on my Kilimanjaro trek. The hotel is meticulously manicured and feels like an oasis compared to its surroundings. One thing to note however is that you will have to pay cash for all expenses which include meals, rented equipment, bottled water, souvenirs, etc. Also, the costs aren't as cheap as you might think. The gift shop in particular is quite pricey. If you have the time, you probably better off taking a 5 min trip into Moshi to visit the shops there (where you'll have to bargain). Staff was very courteous even with the rather more obnoxious guests.
