If you are looking for a solid mid-range hotel, this place is worth a look. Great views of Meru from the rooms. Great staff. Nothing luxurious - pretty simple/basic - but a cut above a budget hotel. I would happily stay there again.

We got a complimentary night in this hotel when we negotiated the price for our 2 days safari. We have been told the price would be around 60USD for a double room. The room was nice, clean, with Tv and comfortable bed; the bathroom has hot water and clean towels. WiFi was not working., The breakfast is a bit light.......

The hotel was amazing and the staff, including the manager, even more so. Very nice and clean rooms, have wifi access in the lobby and, most importantly, great food! It's not too expensive either! Will definitely be back here!

This hotel was a little tricky to enter. You had to go through a gate into what appeared to be an alleyway and then you saw the front of the hotel. There was security in and around this hotel, which could explain the gate and unique entrance. Once inside, you went up the stairs and found a clean neat small...

This property is located in the center of Arusha which is both convenient and a bit noisy. I stayed here in 2011 with my son and friend on our first trip to Tanzania. Improvements have been made since then. The bathrooms in the rooms have been upgraded and hot water is available anytime. The supply of towels and shampoo etc....

Stayed here on the two ends of our safari. We had requested budget lodgings and actually I had expected something more toward the hostel side, but were pleasantly surprised with clean rooms, comfortable bed, hot shower, full restaurant inside, DSTV (for weekend football), and wifi. I am not a first time traveler to Tanzania and East Africa, and have stayed...

The inside of the hotel is fine. Rooms are small but clean and there was hot water. The location - I kind of felt like it'd be a good place to film the next Hostel horror movie. You drive down a skinny back ally to get to the hotel and the other side of the hotel, while it has a...

We stayed in this hotel for one night whilst arranging a safari in September 2014. We arrived to a fairly sullen receptionist who took our payment for a planned two nights and we were given a key card to our room and shown to the lift. Unlike the photos on the website imply, the hotel is overlooking a scrap yard...

Drabby hotel but considering Tanzanian standards it is a good place. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Pay cash in Tanzanian shillings because they don't accept credit cards and they never have change in case of payment in US dollars or Euro. Bad wifi connection.
