We stayed here before the night before leaving Arusha Airport the next day back for Europe. It is located in the city, but it has a huge garden / park that is very nice to walk around, especially during sunset. Nice view of Mount Meru from pretty much anywhere in the park. Being set back from the road it is quiet and peaceful. We had a pretty decent meal at the hotel, not gourmet, but certainly met all our needs. The pool is spacious and good especially when traveling with kids. We did not leave the hotel at all to see Arusha and got the impression from our guide that there could be safety issues in the city - not sure if that was true or a bit exaggerated. There are also a few shops, some quite elegant where one member of our party got a great deal on an beautiful Prada bag. Overall I would recommend, especially if you have an early transfer to the airport the next day.
