we satayed here before and after going to the parks. great rooms for cheap price, the private bathroom in each room are to simple, need some fixing but everything else, locatio, rooms, service, and the Ethiopian food are great. Agnes was the best person there.

We went here for dinner while in Arusha as we wanted some African food. The staff was friendly, good service including the hand-washing at the table! Very good food although small portions. Nice atmosphere with some interesting pictures but nothing too special.

We stayed four nights at the spices & herbs and we enjoyed overall our stay there. The staff is welcoming and the place is lovely, well decorated. There is a fireplace and sofas where we appreciated to warm on cool nights while enjoying free Internet Wifi. We had the room #7 and the mothballs odor was disturbing (but we figured that it was better having the odor than having a tons of ants). In general, the floor was very dirty, the bed very clean and the bathroom ok. Note that the mosque is not far and you'll hear the call to pray at 5:00 am.

The food was nice. We have tried twice the ethiopian menu instead of the continental menu. The quality will depend of your choice. Overall, we recommend to try the spicy meals if this is something you enjoy. The service was fast and one lady offered us a little bit more sauce for free to finish our huge injera. That was nice from her. For the price and the position in east Arusha, this is a nice place to stay.
