Four Points by Sheraton, The Arusha Hotel

With its comfortable, contemporary décor, the Arusha Hotel is great for those arriving from the airport and needing to freshen up before heading off on safari.  Close to the cultural market, it’s also a fun place to base yourself for a night or two.

The Arusha hotel was first built in 1894 before being purchased in 1927 by an American coffee farmer called ‘Kenyon Painter’. It has played a leading role in Tanzania’s history and it is thought that Arusha Town grew up around the hotel.  Many travellers taking the ‘Cairo to the Cape’ route have stayed at the Arusha Hotel.  The hotel is a nostalgic reminder of days gone by and for those looking for a bit of culture and local atmosphere thrown in.  Excellent coffee from the ground floor coffee shop and the hotel’s central location makes it a good overnight stop in Arusha town. The large restaurant serves a self-service buffet for breakfast and lunch, dinner can be buffet or a la carte.

This is not a luxurious hotel, but it’s good quality functional place that is in a useful place for the start or end of a safari.
