I stayed at the Outpost Lodge in Arusha before and after our Kilimanjaro hike and also before and after our safari! The hotel is nice - there is a pool but we were there when it was a little cooler out and so we did not use it at all. A nice patio area outside around the pool with chairs, umbrellas, and lounge chairs. The restaurant associated with the hotel is great and there are lots of choices. Outpost is located a short walk from the city center of Arusha - we had a walking guide take us around. Not too many other places to walk around outside the hotel though. internet is available only in the patio/office area is spotty and uses up your battery pretty quick. no wi-fi in rooms which in my opinion is fine - its not why you are there :) The rooms were comfortable - we had a triple and found it to be just fine. There must have been a security building near us because at night there were dogs barking until late - I still slept ok but if you are a light sleeper you might want a room on the "inside" area near the patio etc. The hot water was ok for the most part - I think when there are large groups either coming from safari or hiking at once and everyone wants a shower then there is a chance for less hot water. On our last night only one of us was able to shower as the water went cold but it was ok the next morning. There is no AC or Heat in rooms but again we were quite comfortable with the provided blanket at night. Good and safe storage area for belongings while on safari or hike. Overall good place to stay; very welcoming people; good price.
