We just arrived at Arusha Safari Lodge and honestly we were really disappointed. Pros : The swimming pool is nice but cold at that time of the year The staff tries really hard to help you Bed and food is ok Cons : Rooms are less than average Concrete floor not well cleaned Dust everywhere Worn out walls No hot water to shower Very limited comfort No slippers nor shampoo provided by the hotel (we asked the receptionist and she brought us some shampoo from nowhere in a toothbrush holder) She also suggested that we bought some slippers at 7$ and then she gave us a pair full of dust and which looked really worn out. Dirty spots on the toilet seat (Photos attached) Anyway we won't recommend.

Pleasant enough pre or post safari spot. A dozen or so separate bungalows around a cold but swimmable. Some quirks like flickering interior lights and concrete floors. Instant coffee! Staff tries hard. Big problem though is proximity to mosque with loudspeaker call to prayer at ungodly times. 5:30 am and again 6:30!!!they go for 5-10!mins although seems longer. I know they can’t do anything about it but in fairness they should warn before booking.

Our trip may have been tainted by a late (2am) arrival and an 8am departure but for something described as “for the discerning traveller”, it didn’t really meet that criteria for us. Breakfast was very disappointing. Accommodation was average at best. And it was such a long drive (almost an hour and a half from Kilimanjaro airport) at that time of night that it simply wasn’t worth it. It may be different if you get to enjoy the pool, etc, but as a mere stopover it did not live up to expectations.

We came in late to the Arusha Safari Lodge after a long flight down from Amsterdam but the staff were still available and provide a nice dinner before we retired to our clean and adorable room. In the morning we walked around before breakfast and enjoyed the immaculately maintained grounds.
