I would definitively recommend this place. The location is great, it is really clean, wi-fi works really well in the lobby, breakfast is OK, and the staff is great. Really helpful with whatever you may need.

Took some friends there and they were comfortable. Good service, friendly staff and clean rooms. Good starting and finishing point for a safari or climb. A good value for your money. It doesn't have a garden area, but if you are just passing through, you don't notice it.

My wife and I booked a safari in Tanzania with one of the local operators. We needed a total of 3 nights in Arusha - on the day of our arrival, on the day of finishing the safari, and one more, because we decided to do a walking safari in Arusha Park. The safari operator recommended Arusha Tourist Inn and... More

Our safari tour company (Bobby's Tours) arranged for us two nights accommodation pre and post our 7day safari trip. It's not very busy tbh but that was ok for us. We found all areas very clean and decent. Reception staff were pleasant and friendly too. We paid $60 per night bed and breakfast (2 pax) and we were happy with... More

Basic accomodation used prior to catching a bus back to Nairobi the next day. Room was clean and tidy and bathroom had hot water which was great. Power went off 3 times and generator took about 20 minutes to kick in which is not so much fun when you are eating dinner and packing for the return flight the next... More

We stayed in this hotel after climbing Kili. For the price of $40USD for 2 people I think it's great place to rest, but you need to negotiate the price, especially when Hotel is empty. Room was clean, no safe though. Food in restaurant was good for breakfast and dinner. I liked location, it was close to shopping center and... More

We stayed in this hotel a couple of weeks ago before we started our safari. The rooms are very nicely decorated and clean, the staff is very friendly and always keen to help their guests. Definitely would recommend this place if you are going to Arusha. It is very good value for the price and will make you feel confortable.... More

Complacent staff. Unreliable wifi, cuts out. Power outage - they had to turn on the loud generator. Wifi only available in lobby. Room smelled like toxic urinal pucks. Very small room. Shower head needs cleaning - minimal water. Terrible breakfast - only bread, eggs & fruit available. $70 usd per night. Should be $10 usd per night. DON'T STAY HERE.

Stayed in the Hotel for a Night, The Rates are Very Reasonable, It is in the Centre of the Town where Restaurants and other places are Near (Airline Booking offices, Banks...etc), It is a Clean and Very friendly Hotel.
