“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Our group stayed one night here at the end of a 2 week safari and biking trip in Tanzania. It was a lovely oasis - lovely green lawns, clean swimming pool, nice rooms, great food and a warm welcome from Erica. After 10 days ish of camp food it was a real treat to have a really nice dinner and breakfast here and then hang out by the pool. My flight out wasn't until late so I had to hang around at the lodge until midnight - Erica was very flexible in letting me retain my room (as she wasn't fully booked) until then which was very much appreciated. She also provided great recommendations on where to buy good coffeee in town - ask her also about the great Masaai/Italian jewellery shop n the same area.

I stayed at the Ahadi Lodge before and after a safari in June/July, 2013 with my family of nine. From the time we arrived late at night to the time we left for our return to the US, Erica and her staff treated us with 5-star service. They were accomodating to my vegetarian diet, kept the resturant open late the night of our arrival to assure that we had a hot meal after our long flights and served delicious food. The rooms were clean, well appointed and comfortable. The property was enclosed within large walls and a gate which made us feel like we were not in the middle of a city. The grounds were beautiful with meticulously maintained lawn, plants and flowers. The pool looked very inviting although it was a little too chilly for us to swim while we were there. Erica was a friendly, interesting owner and perfect host. I would stay here again and recommend it for anyone looking for a comfortable, friendly oasis in Arusha.

Room Tip: All rooms were in separate buildings. Rooms towards the back of the property could offer more priva...

I stayed a couple of times with Erica while I was back and forth in Tanzania. She not only made an extra effort to get gluten free items for my breakfast and safari excursion, she was always ready to help with computer, transport, etc. When I missed a flight at Kilimanjaro airport and had to return to the lodge arriving after midnight, Erica and staff went out of their way to be helpful and get me situated in a room. She was a lifesaver and I look forward to staying there the next time I'm in Arusha. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms are cabana style and very comfortable. Further from dining area might be quieter, but most tr...

What a great place to stay. Erica made us feel like we were lifelong friends. The food was fabulous and it was clean and comfortable. All the staff were warm and friendly. We had laundry done between trips. It was returned to us in a matter of hours

One can not get better value for money in Arusha. The Lodge is run by Erica from Australia. It is very centrally located and the perfect place to stay before or after a safari without breaking the bank.

My folks and I stayed at Ahadi Lodge for 1 night at the beginning and end of our safari. Extremely good value for money. Clean and comfortable rooms, free wi-fi in public areas, pool, laundry service, bar and reasonably priced restaurant. Erica was a lovely host.

This hotel is the one typically used by my safari company and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone needing a place to stay in Arusha. There is a pool, restaurant, and free wifi in the public areas. The rooms are comfortable and clean. What more could you ask for?
