The hotel is conveniently located for those on safari and en route to Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru or the various national parks nearby.
In keeping up with modern needs, the Arusha Hotel has undergone various changes over the decades and was again recently renovated and refurbished, yet still holds its nostalgic old colonial charm. It hosts 86 spacious en suite rooms that are exceptionally neat and well equipped, with comfortable beds, mosquito nets and air conditioning. The hotel is fenced and secure, with safe off-street parking, 24 hour security, a 24-hour check-in service and the convenience of around-the-clock food and beverage facilities, as well as Wi-Fi.
