Affordabe Accommodation in Arusha town

I do not hesitate to recommend Le Jacaranda to Travelers visiting Arusha, their prices are very affordable, it is a short distance walk from Clock Tower. Beautiful atmosphere and flowers. It is better you book it in advance to avoid disappointment as it might be fully booked for last minutes.

I wanted to visit this restaurant for some time and when we finally go there, I was extremely disappointed. The prices are high and the food is mediocre. For the quality of food, you could have gone to a side of the road restaurant and paid 10 times less!

We moved from the Outpost Lodge to La Jacaranda for our last night in Arusha, as the Outpost was booked out for this night. Despite the cost being similar, the Jacaranda was nothing like the Outpost. Our room was dingy, dark, gloomy and the whole place had a very poor ambiance. It was clean, but pretty basic. The reception area,... More

Food was pricey but incredibly satisfying; they have a great range of both local and Western dishes along with a great dessert menu. Unfortunately the service is extremely slow.

This is a nice restaurant. All the Guides say the grounds are nice, but we found them just ok. Good service and good food. A little pricey.

We had 2 dinners at Le Jacaranda during our stay. The food was hit or miss, some meals excellent and some just okay. The service is slow, but that is par for the course in Tanzania (except on safari). We would order a drink and finish it before the meal came without being asked if we wanted another. When the...

Le Jacaranda is located just down the road from the Bay Leaf Hotel and African Tulip Hotel. It is on a dark sidestreet so many people may miss it, but our hotel suggested it so we gave it a shot. It is set on the second floor, offering some nice views in the daytime. The setup is simple, but the... More
