“Quiet getaway in Arusha”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

My husband and I recently stayed at the Korona House for one night after wrapping up our safari and before heading to the Kilimanjaro airport. It was just what we were looking for after spending two weeks on the move in Tanzania- the staff were very welcoming and accommodating, the location is in a very quiet part of town (not close to the city center, but in a nice neighborhood that is completely safe to walk around and explore), our room was clean and spacious, and dinner and breakfast (breakfast was included) were very good. The staff also took care of our transfer to the airport. If you are looking for somewhere to stay to catch your breath before or after a visit to Tanzania, this is a wonderful place to consider.

We stayed at the Korona House before and after our safari. It is not in the center of town---which we liked because it was more tranquil. Our safari company picked us up at the Kilamanjaro Airport, but the Korona House would have done it for half the price, so keep that in mind if you choose to stay here. What we loved best was the quality of service that we got here. Josef, Yusef, Good Luck, and friend were so gracious. We would stay here again for sure! Nice place to relax, no pool, though. If you want to go to town, they will arrange a driver or a taxi for you.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the second story room with three beds because we had a nice balcony (not attached). There...

We flew into Arusha in the late night, and we were picked up by Birding and Beyond who whisked us away to this lovely little gem. We were met with a very clean B&B with small rooms, very comfortable beds, and quick wifi to keep in touch with the family back at home.

Breakfast was simple buffet with made to order eggs and fresh juice. Before you know it we were heading off to the Serengeti, but we would stay here again, and would recommend it to others as well ; )

This was my first time to board at Korona House and the experience was absolutely memorable. I highly recommend the place for the homely service, warm reception, magical yet simple decor, clean rooms and lovely breakfast. I will certainly be back again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floor have an excellent view of Mount Meru.

We were very pleased with the hot water, high speed wifi, quality bed, and extensive breakfast spread. This isn't in the center of Arusha, but there is a great restaurant/pub across the street, and the value of the B&B is excellent.
