Dinner took well more than an hour to arrive - I had time for two trips down the dark street to a bar, where the bartender is behind thick bars, to get beers - and was sketchy when it arrived. The rooms weren't bad, but breakfast was.

If you are just looking for a a place to overnight before going elsewhere, this is fine. Wouldn't plan for an extended stay. Air didn't work great. Awful breakfast. Staff not very helpful. Iffy wifi at best. Room ok. Fairly clean. Indian flavor to breakfast. Instant coffee in a region known for awesome coffee. Fine as a brief overnight..but not... More

A friend of mine recommened this hotel for my stay in Arusha. The price was really good compared to other hotels. The rooms were really nice and clean, and the breakfast buffet was filled with great food! I would most definetly recommend this to my family and friends and I look forward to coming here again!

i would not recommend this hotel yes it is not expensive but you get what you pay for. The room was adequate but the front desk was not very helpful and the breakfast was terrible. Instant coffee- empty servers that were not replenished and employees that did not care. Definitely better options.

A fairly decent place to stay at in Arusha. Clean rooms and bathrooms with hot water. The hotel has internet facilities and there is a computer that guests can use. The restaurant could be better since we had to wait for a really long time to be served. I guess this is one of the better options in Arusha.

This hotel is very good place to stay in Arusha. The location is reachable - roadside, along makao mapya road and easy to access transportation and other important services. The rooms are spacious and clean.

It's a good hotel for $50 a night. It's on the main road and noisy. My room smelt musty. However the room was spacious, the bed comfortable and the bathroom clean and modern. Breakfast pretty poor but no worse than a hotel more than twice the price in Arusha.
