Mc Elly's hotel needs renovation throughout. We were given a room on a floor with not light and of course the rooms didn't have light either. Only because we insisted they gave us a room on a higher floor where light worked. Next day the manager excused the fault which was nice. But nevertheless we were not too happy breakfast...

The rooms we were first shown was nice, but the room we were later given was totally pathetic. Being a couple, we were given separate beds for sleeping instead of a double bed, the shower was either too cold or too hot, the air-conditioning didn't work and the food they served was terrible. We paid for 3 nights in advance...

When I came to view the room they showed me a very nice room. Once my husband arrived they gave us another room. Bathroom was creepy. AC wasn't working. The beds were two single beds combined. I couldn't even sleep well with my husband. When we asked them to change rooms they said they were fully booked. Which is untrue!...

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.

Mc-Ellys Hotel was very central in Arusha and afforded us the perfect start and end to our Kili adventure. 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.

Stayed there twice: before and after the Kilimanjaro climb. Rooms are quite comfortable, I had a good night sleep on both occasions but... I would say for me they were bit too cool and definitely something should be done in regards to showers. First night I stayed I didn't have hot water at all so very annoyed and disappointed after...

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.
