Built in 1894 and later bought by a coffee farmer, the Arusha Hotel offers an old world charm together with all the opulence of a bygone era. The hotel has recently been restored, vibrantly bringing history to life while creating an appealing and inviting charm, though still delivering all the modern day conveniences one would expect from a five star hotel of this calibre.
Start your day by enjoying the hotel’s superb buffet style breakfast, with a variety of fare to suit every palate. Later you may wish to wander through the outstanding tropical gardens of the Arusha Hotel, which is home to many birds and exotic plants.
You may also wish to simply relax next to the hotel pool while enjoying the attentive service this hotel offers its guests. The swimming pool of the Arusha Hotel is the only heated pool in all of the town of Arusha.
If this doesn’t strike your fancy, then why not try your luck at the Arusha Hotel Casino, or do a spot of shopping at the curio or gemstone shop, where you may purchase authentic African artefacts for friends back home, or perhaps have a tanzanite gem especially cut for yourself.
The Arusha Hotel offers 86 rooms including 4 suites, 25 deluxe rooms and 57 standard rooms. All rooms provide tea and coffee making facilities, a safe large enough to store a lap top computer, satellite TV as well as a direct phone line and internet access. Every room is exquisitely decorated and extremely comfortable. Other services offered by the hotel other than those provided for in the individual rooms are a babysitting facility, shoe shining and a 24 hour room and laundry service.
