We stayed at the Kahama for three nights on our way to and from Tanzania. The people at Kahama--the reservations agents, the servers in the restaurant, the drivers, and those who helped us with our bags--were all great and made us feel like welcome guests. Karen arranged for our Riverside shuttle to Arusha, Tanzania to pick us up at the...

My husband and I spent here the day before the Safari. The strenght is that it is very close to both the city center and the National museum, even though they recommend to take a taxi for safety reasons (5$ one way). The room was very small with private bathroom and a sad view on the backyard. The food at...

We stayed in this hotel for 12 days. The service was incredible. Staff was quick to help and very helpful and courteous. The location is quiet and there is a profound sense if security. What stood out the most was how clean it was and an excellent breakfast with a wide selection. Exemptional overall. Thumbs up.

We were hosted in this hotel prior and after doing a tour in Kenya and Tanzania, as Nairobi was the airport we were flying to and from. The hotel is located just next to the largest roundabout in Africa. So make sure you ask for a quiet room that doesn´t have window to the highway or you´ll listen the traffic!...

Love this place. Clean, great staff, nice bar to watch sports and get food/drink. They were great about laundry service and I love the location. I paid about $50/night and thought it was a fair price.

I loved this hotel! I love old hotels and Kahama has some real old charm to it. I stayed here for two nights after a long bus journey from Uganda. I arrived late at night and was slightly ripped off by a taxi driver. Ask the hotel to recommend Peter for you if you need a driver. He dropped me...
