Christina and her team made our stay very comfortable. Beyond the rooms being very nice and comfortable, she is doing wonderful things to assist women in the area. A great place to relax before or after your Kili hike.

Great place, very good value and excellent food. It is out of town, but if you want a very friendly welcome and some peace and quiet then it's perfect.

My husband and I and another couple stayed at Christina's for 3 nights before our safari and again for 2 days before our flight home. When making the reservations Christina was always very prompt and personable in her email replies. Christina is a warm woman who clearly cares about her guests and ensuring that they feel at home with her and have a wonderful time in Tanzania. We arrived in the evening and they brought us tea and coffee out on the communal balcony to welcome us.The bedrooms are not large although the bathrooms are a good size. We did not spend much time in our rooms. We were on the upper level at the back which are probably the best rooms as they face away from the road that can get noisy. We made great use of this large sitting veranda which has tables and chairs and overlooks the garden as a general relaxing area. Christina is very generous and offers personalized service. The guest house is on the main road from the airport and is a little distance into Arusha. She however offered to drive us into town and then onto the Shanga Centre and later to the Maasai market which was a whole day excursion just for the cost of her gas. Breakfast which is included, was generous and we had 2 dinners of traditional Tanzanian food that they prepared for us. We got to know her small staff which included Helen and Rose so that it began to feel like a second home. Helen who does most of the cooking, is a little shy but lovely and one morning she spontaneously sang us as song at breakfast. Christina with whom we had many conversations is an interesting and entrepreneurial Tanzanian woman. She also arranged for a very nice driver to take us in and pick us up from a particular restaurant in Arusha as well the following day to take us to a Children's Center that we wanted to visit. Christina also arranges safaris and day trips for her guests if they wish. Christina took us to the village that is a short walk behind her place and introduced us to Frida who is running a program for women to get them started raising chickens to sell their eggs. It looks like a very worthwhile sustainable organization to which we made a small contribution. On the day we left not only did they serve us a light lunch up on the balcony( free of charge) but Christina arrived with a little gift for each couple. If you prefer to stay at a more personable place than a hotel, to have the feeling that the host will do everything to make your stay enjoyable and to have a chance to get to know some of the local people than I highly recommend Christina House. It was the perfect place to start and end our trip to Tanzania.

Room Tip: Recommend the rooms at the back on the upper level as quieter.

We stayed here to have a look at Kilimanjaro, I have been at the summit and my wife has seen it out of the airplane. The landlady, Christina, gave us a very warm welcome and made us feel at home from the very first moment. She and her kind women supply a first class service, helping and supporting wherever they can. For those who are interested in learning something about Tanzania and life in this country, this location is a good choice. The room and bathroom are nicely furnished, especially the dining room with its wooden furniture is overwhelming. In this atmosphere, the first class food tastes even better. As there is nothing we might have wished better, we will surely come back again.
