We stayed here on our way from Amboseli to Dar es Salaam. Manager was very helpful with our arrangements. He arranged early breakfast at 5am for us to catch our 5.50am bus. Ordered us a taxi and arranged escort to nearby ATM on out arrival night. Dinner was great. Room is a bit simple but sufficient. Free stable wifi throughout the hotel.

This hotel has all the standard features of an international chain, including an in-room safe which can be hard to find in Tanzania. The airconditioning was a portable air cooler, which didn't do much but was better than nothing. The room was spacious and new, the bathroom very useable. The only down side was the mosque which gives a very loud and early morning wake up call - which can be rather unpleasant if you aren't already awake. The road noise can also be a bit loud, but that depends on which side of the hotel you are situated. Location is right in the middle of the town, but Arusha is not large, so location is not that important - everything is walking distance.

We stayed here after our safari for one night. It was clean, free wifi in the room, with very helpful and friendly staff. Would recommend this to people looking for a quick easy place to stay. It is also in the middle of town and close to the market if you're looking for shopping.

This hotel surprised us. In a positive way.
We liked the location - in downtown, from which you can easily walk wherever is in Arusha something tourist important or just to walk around. You don’t need to take taxi every time you want to go to buy something or just to see the city around. From the first point of view downtown and hotel location could seem dirtier and not safe comparing the parts of Arusha, which are outside the city centre and where many hotels are located; we were scary at the beginning, but then we realized that this is true city life and it just seems to be not safe.
The hotel is very modern. If you take the corner rooms (take these if I can advise and you won’t be unsatisfied), which are very spacious, light and airy, you will get the highest hotel standard room for the very good and lowest price, if I comparing hotels outside the city centre, often with lower standards and more expensive. The room was often clean, no smells inside, A/C, all time hot water, free mineral water in the room and free internet on the reception’s lap-top (just ask), with the hotel flip-flops on the entrance to the shower (As I wrote this hotel gives you standards for which you will pay, in the other parts of Arusha – e.g. road from Kilimanjaro airport, twice a more. We were checked one best known hotel from trip advisor’s reviews and we decided not to change Arusha Crown hotel.). Just don’t be scared by the location and people living there, they are not danger to you even they stare at you as you are not use to at home and even they contacting you by offering you a safari. Breakfasts were OK, tastier then e.g. in Nairobi, no complains at all.
I especially liked the pre-conversation with this hotel when I booked the room. They always replied promptly to my emails and did not ask for any advanced payment.
If I went to Arusha for safari again, I would definitely choose this hotel for what it offers.

I stayed here one night before going on a safari. It's a fairly new hotel, only 4 years old. It's right across from the stadium and surrounded by hardware stores. The rooms were nice for an average hotel. No air conditioning, but a fan seemed to be sufficient.

As other reviewers mentioned, the mosque nearby is quite loud. The windows on even the 4th floor windows seemed quite thin. You can even hear people down below talking. If not for the loudness of the rooms, I would probably rate it higher. Otherwise, it had good cable television and a nice lobby restaurant.

Two large grocery stores are across the street and a block to the right if you need to shop for your safari.

The hotel is centrally located. It’s clean and a good size and has cable tv, which is nice. The water takes a few minutes to warm up, but there was plenty of it and the water pressure is good. As I had to leave early on the morning they were good enough to provide a breakfast box for my journey.

Note that they add 5% if you want to pay by credit card, which is disappointing considering many other places (ie restaurants) in Arusha don’t charge a %.

The hotel is a nice enough building and my room was comfortable but drab. Very reliable hot water and strong shower pressure. The internet too was reliable and considering this is east Africa the speed was satisfactory. There is an excellent view of the field of a large stadium (depending where your room is situated) and I hoped to see a soccer match. Instead I was woken up at around 6AM by extremely loud military drills complete with blaring music going on. This probably isn't the norm but combined with the loud city sounds at night and these drills I barely slept. The restaurant is decent but serves mostly western rather than local cuisine. Good, strong coffee, although it was instant. They bring you the coffee can so you can put in as much as you want.

Perfectly situated in the heart of Arusha, a stone throw away from the hustle and bustle of the city, putting the city's delights, such as authentic cuisine, with the delightful influence of coastal regions and centuries-old international traders, easily within your reach. The 5-storey building is well constructed, with marble floors and walls, a convenient elevator, and spacious superior rooms. And yet it might as well be a dark space. The receptionist insisted that there were other guests, but we didn't bump into a single soul. Corridors were lit only on the ground floor. In hindsight perhaps it wasn't a surprise that the room was so dusty. We asked them to clean it again. "I don't remember the last time this room was occupied," the janitor remarked helpfully." For breakfast we would have been better off dashing to the corner kiosk. "Variety" is not in their vocabulary. We ordered eggs that took 30min to arrive. They must have dashed off to the corner kiosk to buy some. Even then, they were burnt. They charge 3 star prices for 1 star services, which explains the atrocious occupancy rate. Checked out the following morning (even though our 4 night stay in Arusha had just started.

The location is very good, just a few minutes walk from the center.
Room was very clean,
The Wi-Fi doesn't work very well,
There's a mosque really close to the hotel, so you can really hear the prayers along the day.
they have good laundry services in a fair price, and a good food (breakfast and dinner)

Airport transport is very easy and cheap to organise yourself. I don't now if the hotel provides it. Our safari organisation took care of the transfers. Enjoy your stay!! harrie
