The hibiscus is a nice, quiet and relaxed b&b. Beds are fine, rooms are clean. Our shower had no hot water, but that didn't matter because of the temperature outside. Nice garden, good wifi (for Tanzania) and affordable drinks.

We were received well. We loved the homely atmosphere. However everything after that was bad....bad...bad... The beddings and mosquito net were NOT clean AT ALL and smelt really really bad. The bed only had a mattress cover and smelly duvet....no top sheet! The pillows were DIRTY! Breakfast was completely below average even for a low cost motel. The fruit may...

Quiet area....can sleep well....but some days the nearby disco will blast loud music late into the night, then we wont have good sleep. Good budget sleeping location in Moshi for the trekkers, easy to get to the town and mainroad by taxi. Will recommend to others. Only draw back is the loud music from nearby, which is out of their...

I stayed here for 7 days. I enjoyed the facility. Room #7 upstairs and Room #5 downstairs were nice, quiet and clean. The beds were large firm and comfortable. The water in the shower was nice and hot. The patio is a nice touch of indoor and outdoor living. The staff seems to work hard and are very good. Jackie,...

Positives: friendly and helpful Tanzanian staff. Tasteful decor, relaxing garden atmosphere, good breakfast, felt safe. Cons: outside city center, spotty weak wifi (though free), no hot water and small basic bathroom, loud bumping music from nearby even though was outside city center. Do not go here if you are looking to meet people or be very comfortable. It is just...

Situated in a calm neighborhood, still walking distance to center of Moshi (but not at night, apparently it's dangerous to walk between the guesthouse and the city center at night - take a taxi!). The terrace and garden was very pleasant. There was no hot water on our bathroom, but staff let us use the shower of a free room....

We stayed at Hibiscus for a few days in December of 2015 and really enjoyed it. It has a nice friendly relaxing atmosphere, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. We loved their breakfast and the convenience of being able to buy bottled water and other drinks and food right at the hotel. While there were some disruptions with power...

This is a small bed and breakfast walking distance to the heart of Moshi. Although we had no problems walking at night, we were strongly advised to catch cabs to the hotel after dark as it is safer. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and clean, the beds comfortable and all the staff are very lovely and friendly. The garden/...

Dear ClareE45, Thank you for taking the time to review The Hibiscus, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It's true the electricity issues in Tanzania are not the best and we do use our generator as much as possible. We are glad you managed to enjoy our garden and chat to other guests.

I recently had the pleasure of staying in this little B&B. Quirky decor - really cute, with personal touches. We stayed in a triple room with a balcony overlooking the once again unique little breakfast room. Our room was spotlessly, clean, no aircon (it was very hot when we were there) but there was a fan right above the bed...
