Arusha Coffee Lodge
Ranked #1 of 175 Specialty Lodging in Arusha
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 4, 2007

After more than sixteen hours of flight time, we arrived at Kilimanjaro Airport, exhausted and ready to collapse. We were met by our safari guide, who transported us to the Arusha Coffee Lodge for a night of rest. Despite it being late (10:00 PM), we were greeted warmly by a full reception staff, porters to carry our bags and the owner. We were offered fresh juice and the restaurant offered to stay open to serve us dinner. We were too tired and virtually collapsed into bed after a nice hot shower. (Each room has its own "as needed" water heater...so hot water was handy in minutes.) We slept soundly in the luxurious king size bed, wrapped safely in mosquito netting. I did hear buzzing in the night from the little critters...but no bites. The next morning, we had a great full breakfast (bacon, sausages, eggs, pastries, cheese, breads) and our safari briefing and were ready to head out for our nine day safari. After many dusty miles and adventures later....we were pleased to return to the Arusha Coffe Lodge (with a day room) prior to our flight back to the US. Stayed in cabin 16 on the way in and cabin 11 on the way out. Both were identical and so comfortable. Plenty of space, wonderful linens, good hot water, food was quite good and the coffee lodge has everything one could need (gift shop, pool, private porches, beautiful grounds). We will always remember the Coffee Lodge. Perfect start and end to our safari.

A great starting spot for our safari. The room were rustic but clean and really set the mood for the rest of the trip. We enjoyed a very nice relaxing meal with a few other folks who were starting their safaris the next day as well. A good breakfast and we were off on the adventure of a lifetime.

Make sure you take advantage of the lounge area as it is really agreat place to unwind. The lodges are all individual so that does not lend itself for meeting people but it does offer great privacy.

I wish we could have read this review some time ago. The Arusha Coffee Lodge (ACL) was FANTASTIC. We have stayed in a number of hotels in Tanzania/East Africa, but this was the first time at the ACL. Our safari guide (Jonas Loiruk of Kiwisa - www.kiwisa.com - also EXCELLENT, best we have used for safari/climbs in Africa) booked the hotel for us. The hotel room and grounds were a haven before we began the safari - quiet, serene, spacious and luxurious (admittedly, not the Four Seasons, but this is East Africa), so much so that we made an unplanned return there at the end of our 4-day safari. Importantly, the hotel has a wonderful bar as well as indoor and outdoor seating for meals. The menu was diverse and included many "comfort" foods atypical of most Tanzania menus, for example, pizza. The food was very good and surprisingly reasonable. We will be returning to the Arusha Coffee Lodge for our next Kili climb this summer, and will also be using the kiwisa guides referenced above, who we highly recommend.
