We paid 170$ per night for what must have been the most lousy hotel of our trip to Rwanda/Tanzania (and one of the most expensive as well) and one of the worst price/quality hotels we've ever been to in our life.
We stayed there 2 nights (before & after our Mt. Meru climb), and we were the only guests.
The pool hasn't been cleaned in over a decade, the waiter looked like he ran away from the Addams Family, there are goats maintaining the grass in front of the rooms, electricity runs only between 6pm & 10pm (too expensive to put the generator on all day), the rooms were nice in the 70s but have not been updated since, bathroom really crappy with cracks in the shower wall, at night there are torch lights shining (we thought the guy who herds the goats)...
Plus you have to pay 35$ per person in park fees to Arusha national park when you want to reach or leave the hotel (one time entry fee...)
After complaining to the manager he did gave us a discount and mentioned that they would start renovation works soon...
In short: don't go there!!
