High quality and service level. 'European' level or higher. Low season, but hotel was fully booked due top international congress, meetings. Reservation and service desk, room service, rooms (spacy, many facilities, clean, daily cleaning service), breakfast, lunch and dinner are of high quality, international level with an African (lady) smile. Great espresso bar (called Arabic). Nice shops in the hotel,...

Stayed 1 night (210 Oct 2016), booked a Standard Double Room on Expedia for just under USD147 including breakfast. Check-in was quick, staff helped with luggage to room. Room ok spacious, standard hotel setting and decor, do like the huge windows. Shower/toilet clean and condition of everything reasonably well kept. Nothing wrong, nothing outstanding either. Was tired after 7 days...

Stayed on a business trip. Quite a dynamic crowd, probably given that this is one of the top options in the area. The prices seemed reasonable. Food was not bad, although it was relatively pricey. Enjoyed the pool side bars as well.

The hotel has a terrific view of the mountain. It is located right off the Nairobi Arusha Moshi highway and accessible from the CBD. It has an infinity pool with a baby pool that is very child friendly. Food and snacks are surprisingly affordable; we will be back!

Stayed at Arusha after an hour drive from Kilimanjaro airport, this is a modern 4 stars new hotel, room are modest in size and shower facilities are basic. On the hotel ground there is a large swimming pool, garden and live band playing in evening, definitely a sanctuary in comparison to chaotic life outside of hotel's compound,

Stayed just one night on our arrival in Tanzania before heading off on safari. Room was very comfortable and breakfast was excellent. Grounds looked good. We wish we had more time to explore before we left.
