Arusha Tourist Inn
Ranked #30 of 126 Arusha B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 August 2012

There are no grounds to speak of and the rooms are small. There are mosquito nets and rooms are clean with nice bathroom and hot water. The staff is nice and helpful and airport transfers are reliable. For the money it's a good value. Breakfast is included and adequate, the fresh juices are really good.

Room Tip: 3rd floor or higher.

Reviewed 26 December 2011

Two of us (couple) stayed 3 nights in as part of an organised kili & safari tour with Argunga Safari in Dec 2011.

---Good---
Clean sheets
Running water and working bathroom
Relaxing restaurant with ok meals and reasonable prices
Restaurant staff were helpful and obliging, despite poor English communication
Mosquito nets over the beds
They held onto our luggage free of charge while we were on Kili or on safari.

---Bad---
Hot water ran out after five minutes
Some rooms face the mosque and are subjected to the direct impact of 5am 'call to prayers'
Windows did not lock and were easily slid open from the outside

---Very bad---
Arriving back from 6days on Kili, we needed to do washing. The two staff members tried to charge $80USD for 6kg of washing which they quoted was 20kg but refused to weigh. Negotiations got the price as far down to $40USD - ridiculous! When we tried to complain to other staff members the next day, we were laughed and made fun of. We did not feel comfortable or respected.

Room Tip: Don't get the rooms facing the street unless you don't mind loudly hearing the 5am call to p...

We stayed at this hotel before and after our safari trip. The hotel is not easily visible from the main road and you need to get round the back road to gain access. The hotel has basic facilities and is adequate for a stop over. There are mosquito nets in the rooms. The restaurant itself is good for breakfast but there is a better restaurant just outside which serves great indian food. Location wise it is a little walk away from the centre of Arusha but easily accessible by taxi/car.

We stayed at Arusha Turist Inn for a few days before going on safari. We were really pleased about the hotel - we payed 60 dollars per night and for a Tanzanian hotel the standard was good. Rooms were clean, nice and with mosquito net, the staff always smiling and helpful and the location was also fine. It's practical for a short budget stay.
