So this is a tricky one... The lodge itself is quite pleasant. A nice oasis in the city of Arusha. The people are very nice and friendly. The rooms are not too bad. Well what is the problem then? If you are just staying one night you have nothing to fear especially if you leave early. But we spent 3...

We arrived at this hotel fairly late at night but were greeted promptly upon arrival by a very friendly staff member who provided the room key and arranged for someone to bring our bags to our room. The room itself was very spacious with a good size bathroom, king bed and even a shared balcony (no tv). I would classify...

This place is peaceful, offers great food, is run by a very caring capable staff (especially the manager, Yuster). I spent 2 nights here, and wished I could make it to 2 months. Highly recommended for solo travellers and couples looking for some peace and quiet.

Very nice and clean place in the city. Good starting/end point for safari trip. We stayed in room far from the church (##20+) and it was no noise at all. Great lobby, friendly staff. Some monkeys around ;) Internet did not work.

We arrived late at night in Arusha and the manager kindly asked if we wanted a meal. We did, so his kitchen staff stayed and prepared a lovely meal. We were a little taken aback by the prices (US$20 per person) until we realised this way typical for Tanzania tourist spots. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable and good...

I really want to give 31/2 stars. The positives are an excellent staff; I thought the room was nice; the food was very good, especially the homemade bread at breakfast. The negatives are there is nothing to do there, no wifi, and then there is the many times mentioned loud music at 6AM. None of these things really bothered me...

The best way to look at your stay at Olasiti Lodge is that it will be simply an interesting stop-over to your next destination. The service was excellent and we felt like the only ones staying there which was quite special. Our rooms were good and the grounds are really beautiful with a beautiful pool.

If only this wonderful nice, clean hotel with super-friendly staff, nice spacious rooms with great beds, lovely food and a clean, cool swimming pool were in a different neighbourhood!!! The noise from the nextdoor church starts a 6 a.m. (on MOST days, not only Sundays) and goes on for HOURS. Forget sleeping, even with earplugs, closed windows and a pillow...
