I came back to the hotel after a few years. It has a feeling of weariness everywhere. In the furniture, rooms, bathrooms, dead elevator.... This reflects in the attitude of the staff who serve you but not with much enthusiasm and seem distracted. Restaurants still serve decent food and there are good pizzas and other Italian dishes and Indian food.... More

After having received great service throughout Uganda and Rwanda, our first impression of Tanzania was not great. The girl at reception did not give us a warm welcome, but seemed to be occupied with private matters. We were given a room on the 7th floor and this seemed quite old and not so clean. The hotel has a nice restaurant... More

This hotel is GOOD for family use or by yourself. It is around 80USD per night. Food is good, try Pizza! It is good. Small bar is cute and people are nice but some of them look at you as walking ATM for tips. Sad. Even Taxi drivers, they try to charge you a lot. People are hungry for money,... More

After having trekked up Mount Kilimanjaro, this was heaven! It is in a good location, not too far away from the centre but you don't get the hussle and bussle! The lady at the exchange place could have done with a smile on her face! I have stayed here on two different occasions, the first time we had an issue... More

Our room was fine (good size, fridge, kettle, hair dryer, hot water) and the hotel facilities are all reasonable for this part of the world. It is a massive hotel and a bit like a maze. We did not swim but the pool area looked nice and the pool is big. The main issue here was that the staff were... More

I stayed in a lovely spacious double room in this hotel and had a great time! There are great views from the higher rooms in the hotel but you also get some traffic noise from the road and noise from the school during the day. The pool area was a little bit tired and the people in the car park... More

We spent 2 night in Arusha- on the way to Ngorongoro and coming back. The hotel is old and furniture is very bad quality; it's hard to understand why they import all the ugly chinese things when they can have locally made beautiful stuff? First night was terrible- room was noisy, on first floow, bathroom window on the corridor(everyone could... More

This hotel seems to be designed by a madman in the late 1970s. It looks like the fusion of two or three hotels. The hotel is sprawling, with only one elevator centre, making the steps faster in most cases. The service at the restaurant was horrible. They made us write down our orders on paper, and the continued on to... More

There is nothing else left to say about this place. Oh wait, sorry there is - its overpriced! The staff were the worst i've ever come across! Rude and incompetent throughout our stay! I would definitely recommend staying at the ilboru lodge over this place all day long! Friendly staff, great food, good value and nicer accommodation!
