The Arusha Hotel is the best and safest hotel in the region. The hotel is completely fenced (which is exceptionally important in this area) and the grounds are spectacular. They even have an excellent work out room and adequate pool. The hotel restaurant is incredible and very westernized. I really enjoyed it over the seven days I stayed at the hotel. The Arusha Hotel is also a convenient jump off location for almost everything in this part of Tanzania and if you need a ride from the airport, the hotel has the staff to do it. They'll also help you get other places. You don't really want to drive if you don't have to so don't hesistate to employ their drives. the one negative about the hotel is that if you leave the property you'll instantly be swarmed by people hanging around the front gate wanting to sell you something. They don't take no for an answer so be prepared. I asked one of the hotel staff to walk with me half a block to exchange some money and they were willing to help (give them a small tip). The rooms at the hotel can be pricey but you should never accept the first rate they give you on the phone. Speak to the booking specialist for a better rate. It is, however, worth your money to pay extra for one of the executive rooms on the back side (newly built) of the hotel. The rooms are excellent. ie. the beds are very comfortable, you have excellent netting around the bed, you have air conditioning, and you absolutely have nothing to worry about. Contact me if you have more questions about staying here.
