I have stayed at the Snow Crest Hotel twice while accompanying my partner on his business trips. The staff are very friendly but the managers are out of reach! What I dislike most is the breakfast! They have the worst breakfast! The rooms are superb especially the shower. The beds are comfortable. The gym equipment were not working on both... More

We stayed in this hotel before and after climbing Mt Kilimanjaro. Considering the conditions in the tents on the side of a mountain, the hotel is a welcomed sight of returning back to normality. However, the hotel room layout and numbering can leave you puzzled to where your room is actually located. Normally in hotels the rooms with a number... More

An nice place but the location of the hotel does that you cant go outside the hotel. Ot has amazing food, nice service and a good bar. The rooms are also good and it does good with an shower with hot water after a week with safari or kilimanjaro.

I recently stayed at the Snowcrest Hotel because I was running a conference there. The hotel is located just outside of town which is nice because you don't get the disturbance of being in the city centre. I really enjoyed my stay there. It is so quiet at night. The staff are very polite and very friendly and Elias, Silvano... More

Used hotel before and after climbing Kili. This hotel was ok but returning to room after breakfast to find two cleaners robbing me was not what i expected. I then had to search them before throwing them out. They had tried taking money and credit cards, had emptied all of my bags and were putting all of my valuable items... More

A nice hotel with excellent service located just outside Arusha. Free internet is provided along with a cable. Service at breakfast was very good. Our guide indicated that sometimes the Prime Minister stayed here or had conferences here when working in Arusha. Foreign Exchange wasn't open but the hotel was able to track down the foreign exchange guy and do... More

We stayed at the Snow Crest Hotel both before and after our Tanzanian safari, and we were pleased with the comfort, appearance, and cleanliness of our room and the hotel. Dinner service in the bar was slow, but all other aspects of service were very good. WiFi worked only in public areas. Because it is a convention hotel, occupancy varies... More

I stayed at the hotel while attending a conference. The rooms are great but the service is very poor. It seems the hotel does not have the capacity to handle large groups. The internet service was down or very slow for most of the day. Only after 9 pm it starts to getting better.

Details: - A standard business hotel with quality decor and rooms - Most American/ Business-style hotel stayed in the entire time. - Fast internet, although occasionally went out - Not a very convenient location if one wants to walk places - Staff very friendly and tries hard, although some local customs prevail It was pleasant staying here. Nothing extraordinary, though.

My first night in Tanzania was spent at the Snow Crest Hotel, which was a very nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. But it lacked the atmosphere that we came all the way to Africa to find! The rooms were very nice and clean and had everything we could wish for. Food was OK, the poool and bar quite... More
