We recommend all our clients stay in the town of Moshi before and after the climb due to its proximity to Kilimanjaro.
In Moshi our favourite hotel, and the one that is included as standard in all our climbs is the Stella Maris Hotel. We really like this hotel for a number of reasons:
First, it is relatively new and although somewhat basic it is modern and clean. Second, the rooms are very comfortable. They include an ensuite toilet and all have a private balcony. More importantly, they are air-conditioned! Internet access is provided, as is free WiFi in the dining area and lobby. The bar on the top floor provides an excellent view of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Secondly and perhaps most importantly, the hotel is actually a charity. The Mailisita Foundation is an American organisation dedicated to helping orphans and other vulnerable children. They built both the hotel and the Stella Maris Primary School next door. Profits from the hotel go to support the underprivileged children of the area, and contribute directly to their education.
Other hotels that we use as standard if Stella Maris is full are Park View Inn or Bristol Cottages both of which are basic but clean and comfortable with very friendly and helpful staff.
All hotel accommodation before and after the climb is on a bed and breakfast basis. Each hotel has its own lunch and dinner menu if you wish to purchase additional meals during your stay and there are several restaurants and cafe bars locally where you can grab a bite to eat.
If you are arriving early and plan to have more than one night at a hotel before the climb we recommend upgrading to Sal Salinero which has a swimming pool area and lovely gardens where you can relax.
