We just stayed one one night at this hotel. We were exhausted after a tiring flight from Mumbai to Kilimanjaro International Airport via Nairobi and the drive from the airport. However, the staff, the facilities, the room and the dinner and breakfast all fell together quite nicely to prepare us for the adventures ahead. The old guest register in a...

We stayed two years ago and loved the restaurant that spilled onto the balcony overlooking the gardens. Unfortunately owing to renovations this whole side of the hotel is not in use and the restaurant is a large canvas room with no atmosphere. The rooms are very good with small balcony overlooking gardens and swimming pool. There is a free gym....

The room was great though the floor was very creaky... maybe it needed to be replaced... I'm not an expert so I don't know about that... all I know is it was creaky and it got annoying after a while. It was also small and faced the street so it got noisy at night and early morning. The food was...

Very comfortable hotel, relatively quiet for being centrally located, small grocery store across the road. Good restaurant, very nice staff and wonderful pool. A great place to relax for a few days before starting your visit to Tanzania.

Stayed one night before we went off on Safari. On arrival they had bookings muddled. I had booked a room for one, but they had me in a room with another person that I didn't know! It took quite a long time for them to sort it all out and for us to get to our room. There wasn't any...

It was the perfect venue for the Russian Ballet performance, in a tent in the lower garden of their property. The mixed grill platter of lamb, beef and chicken was delightful. Each piece of meat was tender and perfectly seasoned, accompanied by real mashed potatoes and cole slaw, but without the creamy mayo. Full bar, with a respectable selection of...

I was really looking forward to my weekend in Arusha and chose this hotel as in the past have stayed there and enjoyed my stay. But disappointed this time as there was no hot water for my shower and I spite of complaining still no hot water. Was given the lame excuse by the plumber/electrician that the boiler does not...

this hotel has seen better days. the service was fine, the room was adequate and clean. We had hot water which is something to be grateful for. The food in the restaurant was ok but not great. Service was perfunctory, not really enthusiastic

Stayed here before and after climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. Perfect setting before and after the climb with Alpine Ascents. The included morning breakfast was personalized with so many options that could be cooked. The laundry service was excellent after a long week on the mountain. The staff was very helpful and professional.
