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.

Be careful of the food and the service
My wife and I stayed here for a night after our safari before we flew out of Arusha. Unfortunately, it was a sharp contrast to the accommodations we had stayed at during our safari. We had no issues with any of the food during our 6 days out on safari but after eating dinner here at the Planet Lodge, we both immediately felt nauseous and ended up taking cipro. Given that there are no other places to eat around this hotel, I'd warn travelers to take this into consideration. Additionally, the concierge tried to rip us off when we tried to buy postage stamps to send two postcards back to ourselves and our family. The cost of sending an international postcard is 1600 Tanzanian Shillings (TSH). The concierge tried to sell us four 600 TSH stamps for $1 each and then told us we only needed to put 1200 TSH on each postcard. During our stay, the exchange rate was $1 USD to 2167 TSH. Our $4 could have bought at least 8668 TSH of postage instead of just 2400TSH. So not only did he try to overcharge us for the stamps, but our postcards wouldn't have made it home due to insufficient postage. When I confronted him on the disparity, he tried to laugh it off before I asked for my money back. Some people might think, it's just a $1 or two, but it's the principle. Just because you're a tourist, doesn't mean you should get ripped off. We had written our memories on those postcards and they would've been lost forever because of his greed and indifference.
