Great place to relax & hike

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 25 Aug 2018via mobile
We stayed here 4 nights and had a really great time! Sabine, the owner, is a warm hearted, friendly person, who knows a lot about Lushoto, the region and the tansanien people and will always help you if you have any questions. The food is fantastic and the landscape is beautiful. You can do a lot of hiking in the impressive Usambara mountains here during your time. Our room was big, clean and cozy.

Highly recommended!

      I stayed 3 nights in the hostel and eat the tasting big free breakfast and test the delicious dinner buffet, too.
      The clean rooms are big with 3 beds inside. The staff is always very helpful and friendly.
      You also can sit outside on the terrace of the room and enjoy the nice view. Or you can sit in front from the community room an enjoy the free afternoon buffet.
      The „center“ you can reach by walk in 25 minutes or take a motorbike or taxi for small money.
      Sabine does everything for you at any time. She booked a guide for daytrip, it was amazing, and she bought the bus ticket and said "Good bye!" in the early morning. She does not took money for herself for this sevices. That let it feel very familiar.
      Thank you very much for everything!

      We had a beautiful stay at Kanaani resthouse. It felt like in a hotel...the days start with an extense breakfast buffet, including nearly everything a european could think of. Followed by nice daytrips based on helpful information or even companion service. Then there is afternoon coffee and you can even have a dinner buffet as well. Basically, we didnt need to leave the location at any point except for hiking :) great place!!

In the „center of loshoto“ there is an coffee-corner and you can play a game with the locals and trink the best coffee in town. The „center“ you can reach by walk in 25 minutes.

      We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Kanaani Rest house. We got a very spacious room with a little terrace and an amazing view. It was clean and had everything you need including Moskito net, towels etc. The people who were welcoming us (all locals) are lovely! Very friendly and helpful. We chose to have breakfast and dinner there and both meals were always very good. They are prepared according to your schedules.
      When asking for hiking tours they suggested a tour guide (Kasimu) who we ended up doing 2 hikes with. He is a very friendly young guy, speaks English and was happy to show us around and helping us out.
      Overall we really enjoyed our stay in Kanaani and Lushoto and can only recommend it!

      We enjoyed our stay at Kanaani, especially because the staff was very friendly and tried their best to help us with travel arrangements etc. The rooms are rather simple but equipped with all you need. Unfortunately the shower had very low pressure, yet that is not uncommon in Tanzania so we were used to it. The guesthouse has nice views from the terraces in front of the houses. The food was plenty and good, especially for vegetarians a nice alternative to the food served in other parts of Tanzania. We booked a 2-day trekking tour to Mtae with Simon, the local guide. We highly recommend him and the tour if you're interested in experiencing the local culture and the people's everyday life.
