Hotel was clean. They had free internet service.Breakfast was included. Staff was very nice and accomodating through the booking process and during our stay. Shower had amazing water pressure with hot water. For a one night stay it was perfect could not ask for better for the price. The best feature was the shower!

Stayed here one night upon our return to Arusha from safari. Rooms were a bit on the small side but very efficient and modern. The pool was clean and refreshing. The buffet restaurant was good and had more hits than misses with the cuisine. Of particular note, I think it was the only place we stayed during our two-week safari...

First thing you notice is how empty the place is. Everything seemed clean and new. We stayed here a night before we left for Ngorogoro crater. We didn't find the front desk girls neither the girls at the breakfast area friendly. Seemed a bit aloof. Maybe because they're not used to hotel guests. The room (#106) itself was spacious and...

Stayed 2 nights pre Safari and 1 night post trip in early February 2012 with a group 0f 10. Nice clean rooms sufficiently equipped with all the comforts one would need for short stays. Very accommodating staff earning high marks for customer service. Decent restaurant although the buffet - typical of buffets - can get a bit boring. That said...

They make a great scrambled eggs but everything is a buffe and no closed containers...

Very nice business like hotel with spacious, clean rooms and bathrooms. We used the hotel as base in between trekking and safari trip. Good service and ok breakfast. A lot of staff around for self service breakfast was a bit annoying. Location on the outskirts of the actual city so we didn't experience arusha. Bar didnt always have cold beers...

Spent 2 nights in early November at Snow Crest Hotel while on safari in Kenya and Tanzania. Nice big and cozy room with A/C, TV and free WIFI, friendly staff, it`s really a good value for money. Sakaina the G.M. is really professional. If you are not looking at a high end property, that is the place to stay.
