We spent 3 pleasant weeks in this fine hotel. Bright,clean and well equipped rooms. Excellent breakfeasts and dinners. The personnel was very helpful and cheerful; many smiling faces. Some people can not like the location as it is not directly situated on the beach; nonetheless, the view of the Indian Ocean was spectacular. And we had the impression that we... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for only one night in this place, but it was very good and ample for our needs. Situated just across the road from the beach with a small swimming pool. The rooms are clean and spacious, and very modern. Really chic! There is tea & coffee making facilities in the rooms.

We called in to this place for a look as it is quite unique, just 4 rooms and various bits of Tanzanian art work on display. The owner made us so welcome, a real contrast to the place we actually stayed at across the road where the owners didn't greet us in 5 days! She showed us the rooms and... More

This place is one of the cheaper ones on the beach. It has just about four rooms and a really nice pool that's mostly empty. The location is not ON the beach but just a dirt road crossing away from it. Great value for your money with really good breakfasts and amazing staff. And the beach is empty!

We didn't actually stay here, we stayed in a guest house just down the beach but it did not have a pool so we asked if we could use Art Hotel's pool as it seemed completely empty. They were very kind and allowed us to do so as long as we ordered drinks, which we were happy to do as... More

The hotel is not directly on the sea but has a nice view and very easy access to the sea, the place is new and being taken care of, very clean place, the kitchen food was not always great but the staff would do everything they can to help and find what we asked for. We were pampered and felt... More

We stayed at the Art hotel for one week in December 2013. From the second we arrived the staff did everything they could to make sure that we were taken care of. They were absolutely amazing and so friendly. The rooms are fresh and modern and cleaned every day. The pool is lovely and we spent many hours hanging out... More

We stayed at the Art Hotel for three nights and had a great time. Yahya was a great host and really looked after us - he was so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are brand new and are really lovely and comfortable. We really liked the traditional touches such as sarongs instead of towels... More

Hotel is clean enough (but shower evacuation is not clean, remove it if you do not want to flood your room), breakfast OK. For all the rest, it is quite BAD, we usually had to request to open the water then you need to wait 10min, hotel is in the village but there is not even a wall to hide... More
