Hotels in Aurusha tend to be expensive. Prices at the Flamingo are fair although I would call it more a guest house than a hotel. Very clean although the bedroom furniture was well used. My room did not have a tv , a bracket was on the wall, although only channel seemed to be Aljazeera News. Breakfast was minimalist and... More

Good hotel in the centre of Arusha. I came here to relax after climbing Mt Kilimanjaro. The shower and the beds are perfect. Rooms are quite spacious and really clean. Good atmosphere, nice people. Breakfast included: the usual toast, jam, tea and fresh fruit.

We loved this hotel in the center of Arusha. The people there were kind, the food was good, and the rooms were very nice. The area around the hotel is not the most touristy part of Arusha, and we enjoyed walking around there in the afternoon. This hotel proved an excellent jumping off point for our trip to the Serengeti... More

Very nice place, good price. This hotel is comfortable, very clean and the street is quiet…even if it's a simple place for backpackers. Bertha was the more smiling person we ever met, she was very helpful and to helped us finding a good safari and kili company. Don't hesitate to go there and you can bargain the price.

The hotel was very clean, the staff was incredibly kind and the breakfast of eggs, toast and fruit was delicious. The hotel was conveniently located with restaurants and shops nearby for anything you need. Of course, that means that it's right in the heart of Arusha Town, so it's loud.

Wonderful gem of a hotel in centre of Arusha. Friendly helpful staff with good advice on safari tours. Basic but very clean rooms and sofa area with good quality bedding, mosquito nets and decent hot showers. The area has a nice local feel with good cheap places to eat. Free decent breakfast of toast with eggs, jam, honey and fruit... More

Nice and clean rooms and very helpful and friendly staff. They arranged taxi for us, gave us advice where to find places and even walked with us to show a nice restaurant nearby. On the down side: prepare to be woken up by he mosque.

When I decided to return to Tanzania there was no other consideration for my Arusha lodging than Hotel Flamingo. Despite the early arrival of 3:30 a.m., someone was there to see to my baggage and get me settled into a room. I noted the addition of TV and an overhead fan in the rooms since my last visit. It was... More

Arriving at the Flamingo hotel we first had an 'oh my god' feeling. The hotel is near one of the 'citycenters' of Arusha. For us it was our second day in Tanzania. So we had to get used to it. Hotel asking $35 for one night 'non resident'. We had a room in front. Better then a room at the... More

We had a one night stopover in Arusha (traveling Dar-Nairobi) and Flamingo proved to be perfect. The young lady at the front desk was super friendly. The price was right on ($35 for double). The room was clean and came with table/chairs, TV, bathroom and balcony. Sure, this isn't a luxury hotel, but it's a fantastic budget option in Arusha.... More
