It was a terrifying experience, for the first time in my life I slept with bedbugs. The bathroom was very scruffy and dirty. The rooms very small and dirty, the mosquito net was full of dust. The pictures on the website shall rise to at least 20 years ago (I think just built).

We arrived here after our 5 day safari, and were greeted in the reception by a very slimey character. First stating that it was $40 a night for a double, despite it being $30. He then agreed that we pay $35 for the first night and $25 for the second. We reluctantly agreed and paid for the first night, but... More

Staff are friendly and the WiFi is good. Restaurant variety isn't great, many things seemed to be out of stock and the rooms themselves weren't great. Especially the bathrooms, various annoyances occurred.

We had nice, clean, spacious rooms for the night we stayed at the Arusha Tourist Inn. Staff were friendly and spoke English well. For a very small price, they did a great job cleaning our hiking shoes after our hikes up Kilimanjaro and Ol Doinyo Lengai - needless to say our hiking shoes were quite filthy to start! The restaurant... More

The most important thing to know is that there is another hotel in Arusha with the EXACT same name (we are accidentally brought to the wrong one in the beginning), but in contrary to this great hotel, the other one looks like a lousy falling a part guesthouse which you do not want to sleep in. So pay attention to... More

Good hotel with good spacious rooms that Greece been kept clean and new. The bathrooms are excellent with hot water 24 hours. The staff are ok still need some kind of push.

If you are looking for a solid mid-range hotel, this place is worth a look. Great views of Meru from the rooms. Great staff. Nothing luxurious - pretty simple/basic - but a cut above a budget hotel. I would happily stay there again.

The room was nice, clean, with Tv and comfortable bed; the bathroom has hot water and clean towels. WiFi was not working., The breakfast is a bit light....... More

The hotel was amazing and the staff, including the manager, even more so. Very nice and clean rooms, have wifi access in the lobby and, most importantly, great food! It's not too expensive either! Will definitely be back here!
