I stayed here a night before and after safari. The person doing check in was not overly friendly, did not offer to have any one help me with my bags either time. However when I got off elevator another employee, same lady both times saw me and helped me with my bags. I also felt the housekeeping staff was very... More

The rates of this hotel are very reasonable and front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. For this I am giving a very good rating. First room they put me in was on the 2nd floor facing towards the side entrance of the hotel. It was fine, a little peeling paint on the ceiling in the bathroom but clean... More

Location-wise, this hotel is a 10 minute walk from the Tfa Plaza, to your right down the main road (Sokine Rd), where you will find an enclave-like oasis of Western confort (burgers, provided by the # 1 Arusha restaurant on this site, as of this review; comfy cafés; quiet bookstores), away from the hassle of the Arusha street. Right in... More

I stayed at the Mc-Ellys after a late night arrival into Kilimanjaro. The hotel is fine, certainly by Tanzanian standards, but it's definitely nothing to write home about. The room was clean, the shower was luke warm, the towel rack was half falling out of the wall - but again, this is Tanzania, and it's a cheap room. Restaurant was... More

Stayed in this mid range hotel from 7 to 9 march 2014. Having gone through many review and found nothing particularly interesting, I decided to scout for a hotel myself. I bumped on this hotel on my way to the bureau. The rooms were very clean and very well maintained. The food was delicious and the chef did a great... More

Fair cost-return ratio. Rooms are really clean, water is warm, satelite TV was okay, location close to the central market. Breaktfast standard but good. Staff is friendly. WiFi is not working in all rooms. They charge 55 USD which I think are well spent. I would go there again!

We stayed overnight in this hotel to get an early bus to Dar es Salaam. It served the purpose because it was near to the bus terminal. The lift to each floor was working properly. The wifi was working ok in the room. All other things were just basic and of average Tanzania standard.

We used this hotel as a base between our Mt Meru climb and our safari, had 3 nights here in total. The staff was extremely kind and attentive, and the rooms were clean and spacious. We paid US$60 for a twin room, and this included a nice buffet breakfast. The hotel is located smack in the middle of town, within... More

I recently stayed here at the beginning and end of a safari. It's a hotel used often by the local tour companies, as it is a reasonable price, safe and clean. To be honest - the chances are you'll spend very little time in this hotel, as you'll be transiting through, so value for money and safety are the key... More
