“In Arusha "chilling out"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013

Zawadi House is like "Heaven on Earth" right in Arusha. It is secluded and quiet, punctuated with luxury under the banana canopy of Arusha. Perfect for soulmates to reflect back and ponder what next life has to offer. Couldn't think of a better place. The staff members are professional, courteous and friendly.

In February 2013, I travelled to Serengeti with 6 other guests. I had taken them for a wild life safari (some photographers). On our return from an exciting 8 night safari, I had booked Zawadi house in Arusha for a night.
Wonderful reception, excellent food, well appointed rooms, free wi-fi - truly 5 * hospitality.
I will strongly recommend this place to all those who are looking for an accommodation in Arusha after a safari or a climb to Kilimanjaro!

This hotel is like a little oasis. Beautifully appointed rooms; safe, secure and beautifully tended grounds; excellent friendly and professional service; and wonderful food. The staff were incredibly welcoming and it was a real treat to be greeted so warmly when we came back first from our safari and then after having climbed Kilimanjaro. Even the most discerning travellers will find the Zawadi House a wonderful and satisfying place to stay.

I stayed here with my family and had a lovely time. Its a beautiful hotel and the people who work here are very service minded and friendly. The food was great, when we asked we got to try some real Tanzanian food like Ugali with vegetables and green bananas wich was fantastic.
I highly recommend Zawadi house to everyone.

Very clean boutique hotel. Quiet location. Very attentive and friendly staff. When we arrived, we were assigned rooms. As the evening progressed, it rained and the staff reassigned one of our rooms located outside the covered hallway to a room within the covered hallway so that my family member would not get wet. We appreciated their thoughtfulness in this action. Modern, luxurious bathrooms with hot water, bathrobes and toiletries. Rooms had very comfortable beds, airconditioner/heat, cable TV, safe deposit, coffeemaker and WIFI. The food was delicious and the cook was very accomodating when we made a request to try Tanzanian food. My family enjoyed our stay here and we would definitely return to Zawadi House. (Aug. 2012)

Room Tip: Ask for room within covered hallway in case of rain.

My husband and I stayed here for a total of nine days before and after climbing Kilimanjaro and going on safari. The ambiance of Zawadi House is serene and peaceful with its lovely garden and African decor. The rooms are very clean and well appointed, including safety deposit boxes and very large, comfortable beds. During our stay here, the water was always hot and the Wi Fi was good. The staff were wonderful, they were honest, warm and friendly and very hospitable, we have very fond memories of them all. They assisted us with places to visit, including assistance with shopping ventures in Arusha. The laundry service was excellent, following our climb our very dirty boots, gaiters and clothes were washed and returned to us looking like new. The food complimented the accommodation and service. We found it a wonderful place to rejuvenate after our long flights and busy schedule and we highly recommend it.

I had a very comfortable stay together with my wife and Daughter. The rooms where very comfortable with cable TV, room safe for my laptop/iPad as well as other important items, air conditioning although the weather did not require one etc. The bathroom and it's amenities was up to international standards found at any 5 star hotel.

While at ZAWADI you really feel at home. For those who do not like the hustle and bustle of big hotels, this is the ideal place to stay. Try it you won't regret.

Room Tip: Most rooms have the same level of comfort
