We stayed at this hotel Nov 1-2, 2012. After a long flight we were met with hot towels to wipe away some of the grime of traveling and cold juice. Everyone was extremely friendly and polite.
The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The only thing that might be a problem to some is climbing into the bathtub for a shower. I t is a quite high step and if you have a knee problem it could be difficult. Perhaps they have rooms that are handicapped accessible. Bottled water was available in the room. After a good nights sleep we took a walk around the grounds. We met a groundskeeper and he was very proud to show us around and point out the different trees, flowers and shrubs.
The hotel is located in the heart of Arusha. We were driven around town by our guide and went to a few shops and the bank but were advised not to walk around town by ourselves. The hotel grounds are fenced and there are gates that are opened to let cars drive in. I felt very safe at the hotel.
The buffet food was very good. The breakfast buffet had the typical breakfast food....eggs, meat, cereal, breads, fruit, etc. Dinner also had a variety of choices and was very tasty.
We also stayed in a day room at the hotel on our last day before our evening flight out. It was very comfortable with a balcony that overlooked the grounds. A very nice place to rest and relax before flying home. I would stay here again if I were to go back to Arusha.
