We stayed in Morogoro 2 nights on a business trip. The hotel is up to what one can expect from it in a remote are like Morogoro. Everything was clean, the rooms where ok with working AC, TV and fridge. The bathroom was small but everything worked and there was hot water. The restaurant was good, but I was disappointed...

This is a really nice spot in Morogoro. The room was nicely done, great shower with hot water, air conditioning, and the view from my room was just amazing! Wifi works well in the room as well. Breakfast was simple but nice. A really nice place at a fantastic price!

We stayed at this hotel on our way back from the Serengeti -- it is a basic hotel but the room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. Dinner was good and the service also. Very well located and excellent value for your money.

Spent two pleasant evenings in the Arc Hotel - beautifully situated at the foot of the Morogoro mountains. The rooms are comfortable with terrific views; you can have a coffee on your balcony to start your day. Meals are fine (beef samosas very tasty) and the staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel has wi-fi and ethernet connections in rooms....

Sorry for this late response. Your review was most appreciated. We are sorry that our breakfast buffet was a disappointment for you. Maybe our staff was not sufficiently clear that you can always ask them for items that you may not find on the buffet. We try to cater for both local Tanzanian breakfast items as well as for those...

Stayed here only one night and it was ok if you just want a place to sleep and seemed better than most other hotels in the area. The restaurant was very average and the food was ok but not great. Though a nice garden viewing the mountains. Breakfast was a true dissapointment, we had a takeaway breakfast but couldn't eat...

Another addition to the list of mediocre Morogoro hotels I'm afraid. Staff are well meaning and friendly but as there's no obvious management presence, there are a lot of cracks in the service. A big investment like this needs the visible presence of the owner or at least a professional manager - actually in the hotel, not on tripadvisor.. Neither...
