Emmanuel was fantastic and attentive to every request we had. The level of customer service was something we hadn't experienced in forever in the US and was so nice to have whenever we were at the hotel. Great food, facilities, and staff.

Zawadi House is very nice place. I imagine, it used to be a wealthy family’s home some day and then converted into a lodge. All staff members are super nice and ready to help at anytime. Emmanuel, the manager, was there to greed us and he made sure we were happy with our room. Neomi, the chef, was very nice and she provided a very personalized service, with good healthy food. We didn’t have the time or the desire to explore the area so I can’t comment on that; although we were told that it was safe. It didn’t seem to me like there was a market or commercial area nearby. I didn’t give this lodge a 5, because I think it could be a bit cleaner. This is not to discourage anyone from booking, it is to encourage management to push it up to get a 5! The beds were comfortable and clean. Very nice yard with flowers and big trees. Zawadi House was a good choice as we passed through Arusha on our way to the Serengeti.

It's a good place to sleep, not far away from the city center. If you need to have dinner is also a good place. The breakfast and the dinner were delicious! Naomi is a great cook 🤩. Emmanuel was very kind with us too
