Of all the things in Arusha, the one thing that surprised me the most was the quality of this hotel. Very clean and very comfortable, I enjoyed all 4 nights I spent here. The hotel offered me an en-suite bathroom and shower, daily housecleaning and a great AC unit. I will warn you that the fruit at breakfast wasn't the...

This hotel is situated in the city centre in Arusha. Tanzania has a load shedding problem and although this hotel has a generator, you will be lucky to have electricity during the day. As for taking a shower, if you love cold showers, then this is the place to be.

A pretty typical budget hotel, well located and decently priced for Arusha. Close to main bus stand, stores, markets. Staff were friendly. Neighborhood was a little run down, but then so is most of Arusha.

Budget Hotel right in the busy area of Arusha town near the main bus stand. It is very pocket friendly and within reach of most restaurants, banks & forex bureaus. Their rooms are standard in size and serve modest portions.

We stayed at McElly's twice on our Tanzania trip - one night before and one night after our safari, as a part of the bookings made by our Tz tour operator. The first night was disappointing - the room was a bit shabby, there was no electricity for 3 - 4 hours and the WiFi did not work at all....

Apartment style hotel in the heart of Arusha. Very small room for three people. Ideal for one night stay before and after Safari. Staff in the restaurant were friendly. Parking available for guests. Good breakfast. Wifi available but very slow.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel from security to customer service was all perfect. You can see the view of the city from top floors. I hope the management will find a way to build a heated swimming pool because it's one of the things they lack. Keep it up the good work

A well run busy hotel with good value rooms. Excellent location. Friendly staff and owners who are hands on managing the place. Fairly new and on its way creating a reputation for a place to get a good nights rest with a minimum of Fuss.
