I highly recommend the management and staff of the Runako. We held a large training event there, and over a for be day period we came to see the patience and willingness of this group to serve with refreshing joy and humility.

If you are looking for a great place for your team to stay, you can do no better than commit your plans into the hands of Wilfred and Janet, the owner/managers.

Definitely my favorite place to stay in Arusha. The staff were helpful and kind. They made me feel at home. The food was amazing. The rooms were clean and with comfortable beds. The staff also gave me a local tour around town and the village which was a great experience. Would definitely recommend it 😀

We had a large group, including students, for an extended stay. The staff made us feel very welcome and were very helpful. Food was delicious - we had both the breakfasts and dinners. Also, ask about the day trips. We had a great time visiting a coffee farm.

A family run place that is reflected in the warm hosting and 'nothing is too much' attitude. Massive breakfast and a comfortable socializing area make this lodge an easy choice for staying in this part of Arusha.

If you want a place to feel welcome, with friendly staff that will make you feel that you are from the family - this is the place to be! It is a quiet place, not far from the Cultural Heritage Center which has the biggest Art Gallery in Africa. Asante sana!! Thank you so much! Hope to see you again!

If you are staying in Arusha this is a place highly recommended. Wilfried and his crew make you feel like home. If I come back to Tansania I will definitely stay here. Nice rooms, lovely staff and great breakfast.

They gave me very warm welcome at the very start.
Since the beginning this place felt like home. People working there were super friendly, amazing and proffesional, including the owner. I could just come up to them and start conversation about just anything and likewise.
Rooms were cleaned and fresh everyday also food was FANTASTIC.
Big mosquito net above the bed did the great job protecting me from anything and it also wasn't disturbing the sleep; it was easy to put on.

Many people do not appreciate the great location. Yes it may be far from the city center but it's really calm and you do not hear any noise; it's just perfect place to relax and take break after full busy days.

I totally recommend this place if you're planning to stay in the area near arusha.
I'm already looking forward to my next stay there.
