Found this gem of a place via a trip adviser forum posting while researching pre & post lodging for our kilimanjaro climb. It was surprisingly a very nice place. Room rates were around $100.00 USD per night. Probably a little less expensive if you pay with cash vs a credit card.
Its a little disconcerting upon arrival because you are on a main road in Arusha and then turn up a unpaved very much a "locals" area road with shops & homes. The place itself is very nice & gated/fenced from the community (i.e. security). It is pretty quiet with the exception of the occasional calls from turkeys housed in the very back of the facility.
The rooms are adequately furnished with mosquito nets, welcome drink, bottled water, evening turn down service & most importantly hot water. As with most part of this area there is the occasional power outage but this facility has a generator.
There is also a nice bar area, pool, laundry service, free internet access and a restaurant with decent enough food (free breakfast).
The front desk service was excellent. Overall we very much enjoyed our stay. For those looking for more than a backpacking place but less than the more expensive lodges this is a good choice.
