Nice, friendly, family-run hotel with helpful staff.

Review of Mvuli Hotel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Dec 2023
The communication beforehand was very good. The hotel arranged the airport transfer well. The accommodation was in a small street. Very nice landscaped area. The staff is very kind and helpful. The bed was very comfortable. Jonathan the manager of the hotel was always ready to solve our requests. He organized the Ngorongoro safari very well. We had a fantastic picnic in the National Park. The hotel's kitchen also performed well. The surroundings of the hotel were surprising at first, but it was safe to walk the streets. I wish you good luck. The free wifi worked well. It has a nice and clean pool with cold water. (22°C)
Date of stay: December 2023
Room Tip: We had a great time, but if someone only believes in the perfect, it will be difficult for him...

Dear Attila,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel and that our communication, airport transfer, and accommodation arrangements met your expectations.

It's fantastic to know that you appreciated the well-landscaped area, the kindness and helpfulness of our staff, and the comfort of our beds. We are especially pleased to hear that Jonathan, our manager, was able to assist you promptly and efficiently, and that the Ngorongoro safari and picnic were organized to your satisfaction.

We're delighted that you found our hotel's kitchen performance commendable and that the surroundings, although surprising initially, proved to be safe for a leisurely stroll. Your safety and well-being are our top priorities, and we're glad you felt at ease exploring the area.

We appreciate your good wishes and are pleased to hear that the free wifi met your connectivity needs. Also, we're glad you had the chance to enjoy our clean pool, even if the water was a bit on the cooler side.

Thank you once again for choosing our hotel, and we hope to welcome you back in the future. If you have any suggestions for improvement or specific feedback, feel free to share. Safe travels, and we wish you all the best!

Warm regards!

Mvuli Hotels is a lovely hotel for the price you pay and it is situated in Arusha. We stayed here for 1 night either side of our 5 day safari. Upon arrival we were greeted with fresh made juice , our bags were carried to our rooms and check in was smooth with a detailed briefing by the receptionist. The grounds of the hotel are well kept and they have a guy doing maintenance everyday. You also have a pool which is nice after a hot day in the sun. You get a balcony in your room if you want to chill outside, and they also have a small TV in the room if you prefer to be inside with the AC. The room is self was to a fairly good standard . Could use some TLC in areas but nothing major, and for the price you can't really complain . I will say the bed is is quite firm so we found this a bit uncomfortable especially when lying on your side. Breakfast was included in our price too , there's some hot food you can have but we just had the fresh fruits, juice and toast during our stay. They definitely need to buy a new toaster as the staff had to do our toast for us due to the handle being broke. Also with the menu I think it's important the meals are labelled so you know if they're vegetarian, vegan and even gluten free for people with dietary requirements / intolerance. We are both Vegan and we managed to eat breakfast, lunch & dinner both times we stayed here with a little bit of explaining to the waiters/ waitresses. Food was good portion size and tasted nice too , and we appreciate they altered the dishes to suit our diet. All the staff were lovely and very friendly , always smiling and happy to help! So overall no major complaints just a bit of modernising possibly to bring it up to a high level.

Room tip: Parking is available, you definitely need to a good 4x4 if you rent a car to come here as the roads are very rough . Taxi or scooter would be fine too.

I received a very warm welcome from the moment I arrived at Mvuli Hotel following a very, very long flight. The staff were all so kind and helpful. My room was lovely and clean. The swimming pool was a very welcome treat! The on-site restaurant served tasty food ( I had breakfast and dinner there ). The hotel has a very relaxed, chilled vibe…..it really feels like home! Every request I made was happily attended to….from powdered milk in my room to various transfer/taxi needs.
Thank you to Kelvin and the rest of the Mvuli team for making my stays so comfortable and fun! ( yes….I returned for a second night before leaving Arusha ).
Keep up the good work!
