If you are spending the night here in between flying into Kilimanjaro airport and out of Arusha the next morning, this hotel is perfectly fine. Clean, quiet, safe, nice bed, nice shower, even a bar scene. One word of advice - the outlets take the G adapter

My boyfriend and I checked into the hotel for the day after experiencing a slight disaster with our previous arranged travel tour company. The manager, Queen noticed I was upset and went out of her way to help my boyfriend and I change our travel plans. Queen helped us get on an earlier flight back to the United States and... More

Worst stay in Tanzania. 2 hours to check in and then told no interconnecting rooms available despite booking 6 months In advance. Bathroom was clogged for entire 2 night stay and reception staff billed me an excess of 500 usd as they carried forward the previous occupants bill. Eventually I settled a bill but was still charged 100 usd extra... More

This hotel is perhaps the best place in Arusha to settle in for a good nights sleep after a long haul flight to the continent of Africa. The rooms are very comfortable and the people very polite. The day after your arrival you could have a very nice breakfast before embarking on your African safari. Recommended.

The front rooms have great view of Mount Meru, the back overlooks an attractive garden and golf club. The hotel has a good size pool. Found the staff to be very helpful. Check in and out was smooth. The overall... More

My first experience of staying in Tanzania was a pleasant surprise. Reception although busy attended to us immediately, gave us WiFi passwords and set us up in a gorgeous room with a view on Mt Meru. The staff is efficient and friendly, the food abundant and tasty. There are a variety of bars and restaurants. Well done.

We stayed here on arrival in Arusha to start our safari. When we arrived, the lobby was crowded with folks, but we were taken care of right away, although we had to wait for our room to be ready. The food we had here was great. We were surprised with a private dinner in teh gazebo, complete with our name... More

This was my first lodging in Tanzania and it's beautiful. I flew into Kilimanjaro Airport and it was about a 40-45 minute drive along a very busy road. I was greeted with a cold fruit drink and check in was seamless. As another reviewer mentioned, the WiFi password was presented upon check in. After a super long flight (and lay-over)... More

Reception personnel was efficient and friendly, WiFi passwords were offered before we asked, rooms were clean and comfortable. Dining room service was efficient and the food was great. Nice touch was to see our country's flag on arrival!
