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...More
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...More
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...More
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.

Internet did not work.
What we heard from our travel agency is that they closed down due to a number of complaints and bad reviews.. But that was just last week, not as of the 1st of august (your post) because we booked after the 1st.

I know OAT picked up people in our group from Kilimanjaro, which is approximately a 1 hour drive to Arusha. In our case we did it differently. We flew into Nairobi because the airfare was about one half of flying into Kilimanjaro from Los Angeles on Turkish Airlines.
In Nairobi, we booked a shuttle to Arusha which was really cheap, only $25 one way($50 r/t). The drive is about 3.5 hours with a stop at the Kenya / Tanzania border. Probably from Kilimanjaro to Arusha it's really cheap on local shuttle services.
We used East Africa Shuttle and they were very reliable. I am sure they pick up at Kilimanjaro to and know they have an office in Arusha. Google them for schedule and contact information if you are interested. Good luck and enjoy!.
