    Great Hotel, but not central
    This is a great hotel, with fast and courteous check in,a lovely restaurant with a great menu, and bar. My room is large and spacious. Hot water was abundant. Electricity was 24 seven. Staff speak very good English and are very helpful. I stayed twice, once before safari and once after safari. I have found that Tanzanians tend to over cook their meat, and this is certainly true of Cedar safari inn. I tried the goat, and it was horrible I had to send back. My second stay, I ordered vegetables in coconut sauce with steamed rice that it was excellent. A little off the main road, which is good for quietness, but you would never know our hotel is back there. This is not in downtown Arusha, so to get to the better restaurants, you have to take a taxi. Or just go veg with the restaurant at the hotel. Lots of Kilimanjaro hikers, and those going on Safari.

    Crest Sf Lodge - Great place in Arusha for a night
    Really great service! This is a small hotel with amazing manager, staff and support associates. Perfect if you are in Arusha for a night before your safari trip or going to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. Very reasonably priced. Have a good airport pick up/drop off service for a small fee. This is like a big residential house separated into several rooms. good security provided. Would love to go back and spend a couple days if the opportunity arises.
