A little bit out of the city centre of Morogoro at Old Morogoro Road you will find this lovely place.

The hotel will remind you of "good old times". It is built in a colonial style and decorated with lots of African art objects.

Usually I stop at this place just to have a break during my regular trips through Tanzania. But this time I had the opportunity to stay overnight to avoid an uncomfortable and dangerous drive at night.

My room was nice, comfortable, very clean and silent, equipped with air condition, fan, TV and good mosquito net. The price is absolutely o.k.

The whole staff, especially Michelle, the owner, is very friendly, attentive and helpful.

The restaurant offers a large variety and very good quality of food at reasonable prices. This is something you would not expect at such a place in East Africa. Maybe the dining room could be a little brighter. But who cares if you have the chance to enjoy your meal or drink on the veranda in front of the house ? There, surrounded by a well-tended garden with some old trees, you will be impressed by a fantastic view of the Uluguru mountains near Morogoro.

This is why New Acropol Hotel is always a very nice place for a rest or for a good lunch or dinner, too. Whenever I pass through Morogoro it is a "must" for me.

After all I cannot confirm - end even cannot understand - what one (only one !) former reviewer reported (waiting for food etc.). Things may take some time here - they usually do in Africa ! If you are impatient or in a hurry - do not come to this great continent !

I spent a week at the New Acropol in late Feb 2010. I would stay there again: so many nice features.
Room -- Mr Tom -- was large, with a nice desk at which to work. Good firm bed, large, with good mossie net. Had both fan and AC. Nice decorations, felt like home.
Got wireless connection: not that fast, but works reasonably well.
Breakfast: as large as you like.
Staff: v friendly, attentive.
Evening food: pretty good
Ambience is distinctly quirky: it's a small hotel that feels as though one's staying with a rich friend. Decor is 'Out of Africa'. If you like shiny modern hotels, don't go. But this was nice. Quiet as well. The rooms are away from the road.
If and when I return to Morogoro, I wouldn't imagine staying anywhere else.

I have visited Morogoro several times over the past 3 years, stayed in several hotels for extendeded periods, and The New Acropol run by Michelle Bragg is definatley the best. To date, in total, I have stayed there approximately 3 months!

The spacious rooms all have large double beds with clean mosquito nets, AC, fridge and cable TV. All have en sutie bath/shower rooms with hot water on demand. Additionally, each room has a sofa or soft chairs for relaxing/reading or watching the tv and a desk for working.

The staff are friendly and attentive and always greet customers with a smile. The food is excellent and meals can be taken in the restaurant or on the wonderful verandah at the front of the hotel - also a good place for a drink in the evening (there is a well stocked bar) and Michele is always the ultimate hostess, introducing fellow guests ad customers(whether holidaymakers or visiting NGO workers/researchers/academics ) with local Tanzanians and the ex-pat community. The place is usually abuzz with a mixture of people at any one time and that is just the way Michelle likes it; and what gives it great ambiance. On high days and holidays Michele has been known to throw some wonderful parties for guests and visitors. The bar inside is also a great place to meet people or shoot a game of pool in the evening.

I note the reviewer who mentioned waiting for food etc - this has never been my experience but I would say to potential holiday makers that sometimes things do take a little longer in Africa (this is a developing country and power cuts etc do occur) However, don't let it ruin your holiday, if you think it might then perhaps this isn't the continent for you.

i have stayed at this hotel four times now and it is the best place in town. the rooms are the nicest and the staff go out of their way to help you. the restaurant is excellent and the food lovely. the owner michelle is very knowledgeable about morogoro and tanzania and will organise bus tickets, safaris, car hire etc, she will even sort out getting souveniers and presents. the new acropol is a relaxed haven where you can chill out on the wonderful verandah after a long trip or a hard day of business. if you are visiting morogoro or just passing through a visit to this hotel should be a priority.

By far the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. The service was terrible. At one point we waited 45 minutes for two fried eggs in the restaurant. We found the cleaners watching TV on the couch in our room, and most of the time 'reception' was sleeping in a chair next to the bar. I can't blame the staff though - the owner was abusive to both them and the guests.

The booking system was a mess, there were no receipts for anything. Even though we'd booked months in advance our room was double booked for the final night, and we didn't even get an apology. It turned out ok though. We moved to the Hilux next door, which was much better.
