We stayed in the hotel for 1 night in July after doing safari in Tanzania. At the point of check in, no one informed us about the breakfast and dinner times or advised on the checkout time. The room was decent size, however it needed some TLC and so did the bathroom. There were two of us staying in the... More

The hotel is very good for the 60$ that they ask for a room. Buffet breakfast was good, menu for evening meals as well. However as others have mentioned before you might have to wait a bit to get your meal. Opposite the hotel is a nice local restaurant for eating meat with french fries or banana for low prices....

Later, we had dinner that went well beyond our expectations. Three days well spent in Arusha City with the... More

For the second year in a row I brought groups of over 20 individuals for multiple night stays at SPH. In each year the groups were highly satisfied with the services, rooms and meals at the hotel. All staff worked together to make sure the needs of the individuals in the group were met in timely and professional manner. At... More

We had dinner at this place. The lobby is beautiful however the staff was so unprofessional. They didn't even greet us as we entered. We ask where the restaurant is and the moody receptionist points in the direction without a word or eye contact. We brace ourselves and walk in and we are in shock as the restaurant looks tacky....

We have stayed in this hotel for an overnight on our way from Kilimanjaro airport to the Serengeti plains. The room is basic, but comfortable. The WIFI connection will simply not work and the simple breakfast will not make your mouth water (but will fill your belly).

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!
