Stayed here with a colleague for 2 nights for business. The hotel is centrally located in Arusha and dates back to 1894. The gardens are beautiful and also the terrace of the main restaurant provides an idyllic and tropical setting. The rooms itself were quite disappointing and are small, dated and poorly maintained. The bathroom had dirty grouting, rusted elements and was cramped. The linen was clean but old and frayed. The second night I woke up sweaty to find that the air conditioner had st... Read more

We stayed in The Arusha Hotel 4 times over the 2 months I/we were in Tanzania climbing and going on safari. We used the baggage storage and the office safe to leave what we didn't need on each of our trip segments -- the clothing required to climb Kilimanjaro varies from that which is useful in the Serengeti. It was really nice to leave most of our stuff in the hotel and only take a small bag with us. The food's really good and the coffee shop in the lobby makes wonderful drinks. The hotel s... Read more

I've been to the Arusha Hotel several times for work and holiday, each time, I'm happy with the room and the food is tasty, but the atmosphere of the dining room lacks ambiance. If the cherry on the top of history, location and comfort was that the diners experience (in all eating and drinking areas on the compound) was exemplary, then I'd give a score of 4plus. Work on the atmosphere.. It matters. Otherwise decent.

I stayed at the hotel during the African Grantmakers regional convening. The service was satisfactory with a very elaborate breakfast. Internet was reliable and to one are comfortable. The TVs can however be updated.

The staff was great. Very helpful and friendly. Other than that it was probably the dirtiest hotels I've ever stayed at. This was part of a planned group package so i didn't have a choice on picking which hotels/ camps we stayed at. Everyone in the group just wanted to get a shower after traveling 24+ hours, however no one was able to because there was zero hot water. Very old hotel. Work up the next morning to find a small service door in the hallway open with water dripping. I wouldn't recomme... Read more

My organization hosted a conference at the Arusha Hotel. The attendees stayed at the hotel as well. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Any issues that came up were resolved quickly and professionally by management and staff. We had quite a complicated arrival/departure schedule for our guests and the hotel was able to arrange transportation for everyone on time. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We received excellent service and strongly recommend the Arusha Hotel to others.

We stopped here en route to our safari with Matangos Tours and Expeditions and were delighted with the lunch buffet and atmosphere. Service was excellent and the buffet was varied. There was a lovely outdoor covered/screened in seating area as well as an indoor area. Everything was spotlessly clean.

I had a lovely room overlooking the pool. The room was clean and well-maintained but a little tired. Breakfast was limited and sporadic - some mornings there was a buffet and you could help yourself, some mornings it had to be brought out from the kitchen at your request. I had the hotel arrange an airport pick up for me at Kilimanjaro International Airport which is about 45 minutes away. My flight arrived at 2 AM and needless to say I was a bit nervous about the pick up being there. It was ther... Read more

Clearly the hotel has seen better times. However one can still feel the history as one walks through the halls of the hotel. Yes, one has to walk to the rooms which can be quite a walk considering the size of the hotel. The staff though are very friendly and one never has to worry about carrying heavy pieces of luggage even when the elevator isn't working. Helpful, one can get almost anything from the front desk - from car rentals to restaurant reservations. The meals are not not bad either... Read more

You are exhausted from too many hours of traveling to count. The Arusha hotel is a welcoming place for the weary. If you are lucky enough you will be greeted by the lovely Jacqueline or any of the wonderful staff. Our room was quite comfortable and quiet. If the weather permits there is a relaxing pool and courtyard to enjoy. The restaurant is quite good and the lobby cafe is a real treat. You will be shocked at the distance $5 usd can go for a latte and fresh made quiche. I was leery based u... Read more

The road from the airport to the hotel is a mess. And so is the surrounding areas outside the compound of the hotel. I had booked a transfer from the airport to the hotel, and no one showed up at the airport to take us. Ended up taking a cab.

My husband & I stayed here on the start of our 7 night Simba Safari. The surrounding area outside the hotel was a mess & if you venture out of the hotel you get hassled on every corner. The rooms were dimly lit but clean & comfortable but our room overlooked a yard piled with rubbish so no view to speak of. The hotel is old fashioned with dark furnishing but friendly & helpful staff. The food was average with not a great selection in the restaurant but the lunchtime menu was tasty & large portio...

The Arusha Hotel is a good address to rest from the hustle and bustle of the city. Staff is really friendly and very professional and always tries to accomodate the guests needs (special thanks to Mathew, Ambuj, Edwin and all the waiters at the restaurant). The lobby area is great, with many sofas and a Boulangerie Cafe that serves great coffee. The garden and outside pool are beautiful. The only comment I have is that some rooms need renovation (especially the bathrooms). Other than that this i... Read more
