We spent three nights at Christina's and had a good experience. I can't say enough about Christina or her family members who help run the place. They are very, very kind and welcoming and go out of their way to help with extra things like arranging trips, laundry and even borrowing Christina's computer to use. The rooms are comfortable and like everyone else says, the food is absolutely amazing. Just about the best food we had in Tanzania.
Christina's is about a 15-minute drive out of town, but she can arrange a ride for you via a relative, a taxi or bus. She also helped us get the bus to Dar right from her place rather than going into the bus station in Arusha.
Only two drawbacks: there's not a lot to walk to from Christina's, if that's your thing, and there's some road noise from the very busy road in the front. The road quiets down at night and we had no problem sleeping, but during the day it's definitely audible.
It's a great place to stay overall and it was nice to do business with a wonderful Tanzanian like Christina.
