Drabby hotel but considering Tanzanian standards it is a good place. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Pay cash in Tanzanian shillings because they don't accept credit cards and they never have change in case of payment in US dollars or Euro. Bad wifi connection.

The hotel is really average and with some experience you can find better places at half prices. The restaurant is worth very little and the breakfast somehow depressing. All included (dinner, room and breakfast) offers at 70 USD may seem attractive, but when you see what is excluded the appeal decreases rapidly. But if you want to feel like you... More

This was my second time staying at this property and it is a great place to stay before and after a safari which leaves from Arusha. The price is right, the staff are friendly, the hotel is clean. While it is modest, it provides the essentials for a short stay - comfortable bed, hot shower, morning breakfast and central location... More

Rooms are clean and comfortable. Wifi worked for the most part. Located next to a local outdoor market which sold fruit, clothing and other nick nacks. Grocery store is about a block away which was very convenient. Would stay here again!

Our room was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel feels secure and it has a lift so you don't need to lug your baggage around. The staff were very nice and always willing to help. The restaurant food was, like most others I have found in Africa, disappointing. All ion all though, this is one of the... More

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
