Other that faulty plumbing, excellent rooms, reasonable breakfast, friendly staff, quiet location right in the middle of Arusha city, parking available. I would recommend them over many others for location, pricing and quality, but first test the shower head and loo flushing. Definitely Value for money.

The Hotel is located at the City Center, well accessible, well furnished and best services. When you are there you are connected to any of the services you want, For over three years I have been hosted and found it a well secured place to stay. I highly recommend you go for it.

The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times - the complementary breakfast excellent, as was the menu for dinner. Rooms are very comfortable, and appropriately priced. Lastly, the plentiful hot water in the shower was a godsend after 8...

Price was appropriate for the Hotel. The food was very good and so was the service. Electric kettle would be good. Remembering that that taps are back to front in Tanzania. We didn't have a door handle on the bathroom door, I found the floor to be very dirty.

Sayuki the manager was so helpful and kind. He provided a breakfast box, as we had to leave early to catch the Dar express at 6:30am. He also accepted a clothing package before our arrival. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone, we felt very safe. And all staff were helpful.

Of all the things in Arusha, the one thing that surprised me the most was the quality of this hotel. Very clean and very comfortable, I enjoyed all 4 nights I spent here. The hotel offered me an en-suite bathroom and shower, daily housecleaning and a great AC unit. I will warn you that the fruit at breakfast wasn't the...
