The best palak paneer I have ever had! Service can be slow but its worth the wait. It can be cold if you eat in, so bring a jumper.

You know you're about to eat well when the local Indians also come here to eat. The ambience is almost absent (apart from being able to see the chefs at work) and it's a little draughty but who cares? The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The beers are as cold as you could wish for. You can't afford to come to Arusha and miss this experience.

We stayed 2 separate nights in this hotel with 1 week gap in the middle, whilst visiting Serengeti NP, Ngorongoro crater, & Lake Manyara. Arusha is the gateway to these wonderful attractions. The hotel staff are quite rude, the food is very poor in both range & quality and in our rooms the hot water had to be run for 15-30 mins to reach an acceptable temperature. (Arusha is cool to cold fue to its altitude). The office is in full public view and is stacked metres high with papers and junk. Embarrassing to say the least! The place is dark and depressing. I think that the manager should be sacked!!

Ugly looking hotel but incredibly good Indian food at reasonable prices. Good portions and the kitchens are open-plan. We were asked about how spicy we wanted every dish which was very much appreciated.

Bustling upscale hotel with all the Western commodities. If you miss your Sheraton or Hilton then Karibu! Not for the backpacking crowd. If you miss the amenities of back home then book here.
