We stayed in Eileen's after the Safari and before we went to Zanzibar, they received us with fresh watermelon 🍉 juice and lots of smile 😃 All the staff make us feel like 🏡. Is a Beuty all around nature and huge trees and plants 🪴 Farm to table food with Chef God bless was delicious 🤤. They have massage services , rooms are nice and spacious. It was a very special stay! I highly recommended.

This cozy Inn is nestled off the main road in Arusha. It was very safe, warm and extremely welcoming. The staff all remembered your name and made the service that much better. The showers and bathrooms were great with hot water, the rooms were large and the beds were comfortable with mosquito netting. The food was SO GOOD, all freshly made. The power may go out but your staying in Africa, that tends to happen, but charging capabilities are available all night, some places they turn off at around 11-12. It was one of our friends birthdays while we were staying there and we mentioned it to the chef and they made a personal cake for her! It was awesome!

We pent 2 nights there during our safari and it's really a great place. The rooms are big and comfortable. They have connected rooms for the kids. We had no time to use the pool but it seemed nice. The food is great! One of the best buffet we had in our trip! Staff is super friendly.

We lost power 4 times in one night. They charge for water at dinner but they don’t tell you when they ask what you would like to drink so beware. Hot water ran out 15 minutes into the shower which is surprising for such a big lodge in the town. We never ran out of water staying in safari camps. Wifi speed was very slow at the reception. Staff were friendly though. Breakfast buffet was decent and had freshly made eggs and good bacon. Dinner buffet was also good and had a good variety but there were some meats that were dry. We didn’t like that they require you to drink your soup before you can get food (probably so you eat less). We actually got asked multiple times if we had our soup yet. Lunch box was not good and out of 3, we were each missing something. One was missing chicken while another was missing muffin. Eileens Trees Inn wasn’t the best but it also wasn’t the worst out of the 3 we stayed in. We enjoyed our stay at the Karatu Simba Lodge the most.
