Worth the drive from the action of Arusha
It's a bit off the beaten track, but a very pleasant property. Lots of great birdlife. 5% extra is charged if you use a credit card.

The staff makes the place ROCK
Hotel is nicely hidden outside busy Arusha. Its perfect to start and end a safari. Rooms are nicely set within gardens and nature. Breakfast is very well sorted and food in general was great. Above all, the staff was just incredibly friendly and helpful. I would stay here again mostly becuase of the way the staff made us feel: Hakuna Matata!

Beautiful oasis in Arusha town.
The service was incredible. They'll make you feel like royalty. A non-stop cleaning crew keeping things sparkling clean and lovely.

I loved my stay at the Planet Lodge. The rooms were large and well furnished, although the beds were a little hard, the cleanliness of the rooms and common area were excellent, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool and air conditioning were an added bonus. The value for the money was excellent. I would heartily recommend this hotel. The location is a bit far from the center of town, but they provide a once a day shuttle to town.

I was very pleased with this property. The price and quality of service, food, cleanliness, grounds and pool were excellent. From the moment you check in, the friendliness of the staff and service were outstanding. It is located a bit away from the center of town which was not an issue for me since I was picked up by my safari company and they do offer a shuttle to town once a day. The beds are a bit hard as the mattress is on a wood stand. That being said, I slept very soundly. This hotel does have air conditioning and the showers are wonderful. I truly enjoyed my stay and would come back again.
