As part of our OAT Safari, we stayed here before and after, for a total of 3 nights. The meals were tasty and served on the deck over looking the pool area. There is a decent bar and gift shop. The staff are courteous and helpful. The grounds are beautifully landscape. The outside noise can be a distraction at night... More

Stayed here 2 nights pre and post Safari. Excellent friendly staff. Great food. Very good prices. Grounds and pool are very well maintained. Rooms are clean, spacious, and comfortable. Their gift shop has most of the items you might see elsewhere in Tanzania, and at competitive prices.

Our OAT began and ended at this lodge. Each visit included wholesome and tasty food along with the benefits of very helpful staffers. The rooms are large with a small balcony, and the public areas are comfortable and airy. There's a lovely pool as well as a family of resident monkeys! The small gift shop is well stocked. And, there's... More

Olasiti lodge is situated in the middle of the chaos that is part of Arusha. The rooms are basic. clean and for the most part quiet. A few of the rooms are immediately adjacent to the neighboring mega church. That is two to three thousand people attend a day long service several times a week.. Don't stay overnight in one... More

Also, stayed there as part of our OAT Tanzania Safari trip. The premises were very clean and our room was large and comfortable. We also heard singing one morning coming from a local church. It didn't bother my husband and I as we enjoyed the cultural experience. Our trip leader also walked us from the hotel down to the church... More

We just returned from the OAT Tanzania Safari trip and had none of the problems stated in the previous reviews. The mosque and church were not noisy, the staff was friendly and excellent and the food was fine.

The Olasti Lodge in Arusha, Tanzania is where OAT travelers begin and end their OAT Safari Serengeti trip. The rooms were very large and comfortable, situated on lovely grounds inside a walled, security guarded compound. We left the compound only when in our safari vehicles, or when with our trip leader. It probably isn't advisable to try to head out... More

I stayed there three different times as part of an OAT trip in December. The rooms are okay--dpending upon where on the property you are located. The staff is okay but not particularly friendly. The pool is very nice--a plesant place to sit, watch the monkeys come done from the trees to see if there is a handout available, and... More

Stayed a total of five nights spread out over a two-week period and appreciated the comfort and security here. Arusha surrounds with all its hustle and bustle but is not allowed to intrude into this island of comfort. Especially liked the common outdoor sitting area at the back of the room row -- upstairs is best, with birds and trees... More
