My wife and I stayed at the Arc Hotel in late November 2011 at the end of a short NGO service trip in Tanzania. Rather than drive from Iringa to Dar es Salaam in one day, our team leader recommended an overnight closer to Dar and chose the Arc Hotel. We were very pleased with our room. Air conditioning, TV, very comfortable queen bed with net, good bathroom. Our 1st floor room window opened onto a patio and lawn where that evening there was a very loud school graduation party, but it was done by 10PM so we had no trouble sleeping. The restaurant menu had excellent Indian cuisine, among others. A full English breakfast buffet was included with the room. We paid 60,000 TZ schillings for our double room, about 1/4 the price for a similar room at a hotel on the Msasani Peninsula in Dar. The hotel grounds are surrounded by a wall with security at the gate. We were very satisfied overall and recommend it.
