We stayed here for 4 nights after getting back from safari. I wish we had stayed in it earlier when we were looking for a safari, but, before arriving in Arusha, we were put off as it is on "the wrong side of town", and beside the bus station. In fact, this did not turn out to be a problem. The advice is always to take a taxi at night so It does not matter where you stay (as lomg as taxis are available). This is a more interesting area during the day, and taxis are cheap and can take you wherever you want to go. Arusha is not so big, so there is little more than 20 minutes walk away. The restaurant balcony is a pleasant place to have a beer and watch the life at the bus station.

The hotel is modern, as described on the website, and very good value. There is internet available in the rooms if you bring your own computer. They will supply the cable if required, though a technician has to initialize the connection (no charge). It was great to get back to the internet after safari.

We booked after visiting several hotels in the area and comparing them. This was the one we chose. Their website is a bit irritating (music, fancy effects) and the food service is not very quick, but that is normal for the region. Excellent fish, though we were quite far from a sea or lake. When we arrived, the room we were initially given lacked some of the facilities of the one we had been shown (fridge, I think). We were instantly moved. Staff was friendly.

The Aquiline Hotel is located in the center of Arusha, directly opposite the long distance bus station. It could be a noisy location, but the soundproofing is good. Security is also good, important in a city like Arusha where there are so many touts trolling for customers on the city streets.
The hotel is quite new, the rooms very nicely appointed, a decent size and very clean. The bathroom had a very fancy multi jet shower, but the shower door was stuck in the open position!
The restaurant serves decent food at appropriate prices.

The Aquiline is a good choice if you just need a central place to stay for a night, or if you are in Arusha on a business trip. I paid 53,200 TSh for a single room including breakfast.
