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.
