I recently spent two nights at this wonderful place on the outskirts of Arusha. I made my booking on phone from Nairobi and drove down to Arusha. The premises are located just outside the city; we had trouble locating the premises at first because the sign faces away from you when driving from Kenya. However, the host, Andy who kept checking on us all through our trip, arranged to meet us and guide us to the place.
The first thing that strikes you about Tumaini is just how neat and clean the premises are; in addition to this, the rooms are large, water pressure is good and the complimentary wi-fi works quite well. The place is very quiet with just the noise from the birds to distract you. The owner Andy and his staff are very friendly and more importantly, very helpful.
We found breakfast at tumaini to be very good starting with fresh juice, seasonal fruits and the the customary coffee/ tea, bread and eggs. We were informed that the hotel serves other meals on request but we did not get to try out the menu.
Overall, Tumaini cottage was a nice place to stay and I would definately recomend it to fellow travellers.
