I stayed here for one night prior to commencing a safari. Christina kindly picked us up from the bus stop just down the road from her house, which meant we avoided the hustle and harassment of the central bus station. We were given tea and coffee on a tray after arrival. Some local women cooked a delicious meal for us that evening, some of the best food I had during my stay in Tanzania. The room was simple but clean and had everything you need. There was a series of power cuts when we were there so we could not have hot showers but a large bucket of hot water was brought for us. Christina and her staff were very friendly and as the only guests that night it was a much more personalised experience than a big hotel and great to be supporting her work with local women.

My mother and I had a fantastic stay at Christina House last September. She and her nephew picked us up from the airport, and were kind and generous throughout our stay. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was more than what we expected, and the garden was lovely. The food was also excellent, and were extremely accommodating to our dietary restrictions (we're vegetarian). I would highly recommend this place to anyone coming to Arusha (though be aware that it's slightly outside the city center).

Christina House was a huge highlight of our trip to Tanzania.

My wife and I stayed twice with mama Christina for two days each.
Beautiful B&B with very friendly staff. Mama Christina takes care of everyone as if you are part of the family. Not to far away from Arusha and very fast transfer to town.

We spent the night before and After our Safari at Christinas House in arusha. The House is Set in a Nice Garden, but still a Bit noisy from the Main Road ( bring earplugs) The rooms are Nice furnished and have a Big bathroom- unfortunately the shower Did Not work properly During our stay. The african Food We had in the evening was very Good. Even it's a Bit Outside of arusha, Christina's House is a Good Alternative to all the Big and expensive Hotels in arusha downtown.

This is where we spent our first night in Tanzania. Christina's son picked us up at the bus station (we had a very comfortable bus ride from the airport in Nairobi). We were able to nap and relax and slept very well. The atmosphere was wonderful and it felt great to support a local business. Our safari (Duma) picked us up in the morning. We returned here after our safari and they had kept all of our additional luggage safe.

The food was good and the service was excellent!
