Rich Hotel
Ranked #20 of 126 Arusha B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 March 2010

My Safari organiser booked me into this hotel in the heart of Arusha. and I was surprised to find very little mention of it online, so thought I'd check back here and make amends. It seems to be a quiet hotel that's popular with local businessmen rather than tourists, with some great views of the mountains from the upper north facing floors.

The hotel charges an affordable $35US for a single and $40 a double (or shilling equivalent). It's very clean, with an attractive atrium in the middle, giving the hallways plenty of light. There's always an armed guard outside the front door who's very friendly.

The room itself (i had a single) isn't huge, but the bed is very comfortable with full drop down mosquito netting (not that you'll really need it in Arusha due to the altitude.) Shower pressure wasn't great, but after a safari any hot water is a bonus. Room also has tv and both US and UK style plug sockets.

Breakfast (included) is simple, toast, tea, coffee, a small plate of fresh fruit and eggs made your way on demand.

The biggest drawback at the hotel is the proximity to the mosque on Mosque street. You'll be woken by prayer call at 5am. The mosque is south of the hotel (right hand side as you face it) so try and get a room on the left (better views too).

Overall, a great budget option.
