Exceptional 10.0
Nice Hotel in Arusha
Great place at downtown Arusha. The best rooms are the ones with the garden view. Very nice service and the Indian food at the restaurant was excellent.
susana, us2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Good value
Basic hotel, cheap but good. I had a nice and quiet room with balcony facing the garden. The bed was good, all the fixtures worked, the shower was warm, the room was spacious. Breakfast was African and basic, but if you asked for something else, they might be able to help you. E.g. I don’t like the flavoured and sweetened yoghurts, so instead they gave me a bowl of natural yoghurt from the Indian kitchen. II tried the restaurant for dinner also and you can have a very decent meal if you stay away from dishes that may be tough or bony! Their Indian vegetarian dishes are excellent! No elevator in the hotel, so this is not your place if you’re infirm. Very central location - I would stay there again.
