Hotel Flamingo - how do i book it?

I'm new at this site & still figuring out how to use it. I want to book a room at the Hotel Flamingo in Arusha, which is reviewed here, but can't figure out how to do it. I don't see any online facility for that, or any contact info (phone, address, website, email, etc) for the hotel, nor can I find any of this via Web searches or Expedia, etc. Any suggestions? Thanks

I don't know if this is a good telephone number or not, but it's worth a try. +255 2548812 This would be a land line.

Outside that I would contact a safari operator in Arusha and see if they won't make the booking for you. They may charge you a bit to do this, but at 20,000 Tsh for a single it couldn't be too much. If you don't want to do that then I would just go there when you get there and see if they have a room, if they don't there's a lot of hotels in Arusha.

As for an address is on Makongoro Road and Kikuyu Street right across from the Arusha Declaration Museum and the Mwenge Monument roundabout, which is also closeby the stadium and not too far from the bus station. This is a budget hotel.

Thanks Karl. I'm kind of amazed how quickly I got a reply on this. The number didn't work, but I may follow up on your other suggestions. Nice to know that hotel rooms are likely to be available when I get there. Wasn't sure about that, given that Arusha apparently has a brisk tourist industry. Craig

Craig.... Someone you might want to contact to see if they could stop by and make a booking for you, send Armstrong Nyaka an e-mail and ask him if he would make a booking for you and give him the time you will be there at the Flamingo. His e-mail address is armnyaka@yahoo.com Ask him to stop by and give him a tip for doing this for you. He'll probably do it for you. He's a very resourceful man and knows many in Arusha.

Hotel availability will largely be based on the time of year you are going there although with the budget places you should have better luck with finding someplace when you get there. Make a list of places before hand-dont rely on for example a taxi driver-to take you someplace or you will wind up in flycatcher paradise. Backpackers paradise (at L Oasis Lodge) often has availablity, is similarly priced, but with a good breakfast and a really nice pool/bar area.

Flamingo is rite near a Mosque. Great location but can be a bit noisey s I do agree with Serval about L'Oasis. And they have a pool.
