My husband and I spent a total of 3 nights at the beginning and end of our safari. This is a basic hotel. Rooms are a reasonable size with A/C and TV (there was a movie channel). Bathroom is a good size, shower ok (lots of hot water) but the towels were rough beyond belief. Everything was clean. The restaurant...

As long as you don't go to Mc-Elly's expecting to be in the lap of luxury, you're not going to go away disappointed. This is a budget hotel that provides the basics and little else, and if that's what you're looking for - you're going to come away satisfied. The rooms, although small, are comfortable. Air conditioning, a private bathroom,...

Basic hotel and amenities, friendly and helpful staff, yummy food. The only problem is that it is noisy. I could hear next door's shower in the middle of the night, as well as pounding on the wall very early in the morning.

However when I got off elevator another employee, same lady both times saw me and helped me with my bags. I also felt the housekeeping staff was very...

The rates of this hotel are very reasonable and front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. For this I am giving a very good rating. First room they put me in was on the 2nd floor facing towards the side entrance of the hotel. It was fine, a little peeling paint on the ceiling in the bathroom but clean...

Location-wise, this hotel is a 10 minute walk from the Tfa Plaza, to your right down the main road (Sokine Rd), where you will find an enclave-like oasis of Western confort (burgers, provided by the # 1 Arusha restaurant on this site, as of this review; comfy cafés; quiet bookstores), away from the hassle of the Arusha street. Right in...

I stayed at the Mc-Ellys after a late night arrival into Kilimanjaro. The hotel is fine, certainly by Tanzanian standards, but it's definitely nothing to write home about. The room was clean, the shower was luke warm, the towel rack was half falling out of the wall - but again, this is Tanzania, and it's a cheap room. Restaurant was...

Stayed in this mid range hotel from 7 to 9 march 2014. Having gone through many review and found nothing particularly interesting, I decided to scout for a hotel myself. I bumped on this hotel on my way to the bureau. The rooms were very clean and very well maintained. The food was delicious and the chef did a great...
