I stayed here for two days recently and it was an excellent hotel.

The location is perfect. You can stroll into town in 5 minutes, but it's quiet at night. The staff are super friendly with no request too much. Rooms, while not being super modern, all had their own unique charms. They were perfectly clean (as I expected) but they each had their own feel. The rooms feel more like proper guest rooms rather than being in a large hotel chain.

I would really recommend staying here

Just back from a 2 night stay. This is a lovely, clean & modern hotel. I stayed as part of a group. Having stayed in a number of hotels during my recent visit to Tanzania in a number of regions-I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is small & homely. They have a nice size dining room & offer a lounge area for guests. The rooms are clean with extremely comfortable beds, mosquito nets & a modern feel. I know that the menu options are limited however, this is not uncommon in Tanzanian hotels. The food is very well prepared & the staff do try to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. They are very accommodating with food requests.
The area is nice & quiet & located close to the hospital & the town. The only downside ( & it's not a big one) is that as it is quiet small, the rooms are very close to the lounge area & reception & so can be a little noisy....but nothing a good pair of earplugs wouldn't fix. I would love to stay here again-perfect base also for Ruaha National Park-2 hours away.

Room tip: Pick the furthest from reception to help with noise (it's not that loud but if you are a light sleeper)

We spent one night here, on our way back to Dar. Very pleasant. Nice and clean rooms. We had a very early departure, and the staff had prepared a breakfast to go for our group. Definitely will be back here when we are in Iringa.

This is a nice hotel in Iringa. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is very welcoming. I stayed here for approximately 2 months. Food can be a little problem sometimes with less options on the menu , but few good restaurants are in walking distance from the hotel. Quiet surrounding and good budget hotel. They only accept cash.

This is a newly established location in a quiet, but secure, part of town in the Gangilonga area. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff welcoming. It was perfect (for me) as it was an easy walk to where I wanted to be for work. I did not feel at any risk walking out at night, if going elsewhere for a meal or the nearby bar for a drink. The food available was generally good, even if somewhat limited, but the prices for the accommodation etc. were all very good value compared with what was available nearby. I recommend it for value, friendliness and cleanliness and will be returning again later in the month.

Room tip: There aren't many rooms, but I suspect they are all ok
