Well arranged rooms with 24hrs service in all areas. I will be back the other week.. hope to have more service than this.

The Arusha hotel is the oldest hotel in town (120 years). In the distant past, it hosted luminaries like US-president Theodore Roosevelt, the author Ernest Hemingway and the Prince of Wales. In the course of time, the hotel has been renovated and extended several times. The hotel’s prime attraction is its superb location smack-bang in the middle of town close...

A really comfortable hotel right in the centre of Arusha. The rooms are large with good facilities, and the restaurant overlooking the garden serves very good meals. Staff are helpful and friendly, even when you arrive late at night! For a city hotel, it has character and atmosphere. I would definitely choose this hotel again.

After a long flight we spent our first night in Tanzania at the Arusha Hotel (was booked by the tour operator). We left early morning again so there was little time to explore the surroundings but from what we could see the location was central, yet the hotel was quiet. Check-in/out procedure was smooth. Hotel staff is friendly and attentive....

on arrival I was greeted by the friendly staff at reception. Despite a little wait I was eventually given my room key and taken to the room. The room was large with a separate bath and shower, huge bed and a nice desk, which was a luxury considering I was there on business. I didn't venture out of the hotel...

This hotel is found in the town center next to the clock tower. The drive from Kilimanjaro airport took about 45 minutes.

This is a very good place to stay. The staff have good customer service. The food is always delicious and their snacks too. Best part, there's a well equipped gym and a pool. Only downer is that the pool is highly populated over the weekends.

This is a nice hotel and it's in a good location. But washroom are not super clean for the price.... I was expecting more for the price we paid for this room. But staff is very nice. I would come back here if it was cheaper but not for almost 300$ a night.
