Stayed just one night on our arrival in Tanzania before heading off on safari. Room was very comfortable and breakfast was excellent. Grounds looked good. We wish we had more time to explore before we left.

I love this hotel. It has beautiful grounds, pool, and lovely verandah for drinks, lunch or dinner. The service is always excellent, the sitting is well arranged and the ambience is very relaxing. Good landscape gardens/grounds for taking a walk around the gardens. You may get good views of Mt Meru too on a good day.

Decent hotel in Arusha in the Center of the city. Excellent service with decent food and bar. Check in counters are super slow but then everything in Tanzania is Pole Pole (very slow). Rooms are ok and so are the bathrooms. It's like a nice 4 star

We stayed just one night in Arusha, on our way into an 8 night safari. The hotel was very nice - appeared to be a business-type hotel - smaller rooms, but well appointed with everyone you needed for a stay. The grounds seemed very expansive and other work was underway on the grounds as well. There was a pool, walkways,...
