We have stayed at the Acropol many times over the years and what keeps drawing us back is the unique character of the place. It has a wonderful timeless feel to it, with collections of old photos and furniture, and a laid back vibe. The rooms are reasonably priced, with a residents rate of Tsh 65,000 for a double with...

But if you yearn for a taste of East Africa architecture, spacious rooms with stunning antique furniture, a large bar area with a mass of African memorabilia, a verandah on which to relax with a sundowner after a long drive or a day of sightseeing before sitting down to a sensational meal supervised by chef/proprietor Michelle then the New Acropol...

have passed through this hotel over the years...this is not the place for you if you need order, efficiency and uniformity....here, you never quite know what you are going to get. if you want predictable and a corporate professional feel, then go to the Nashera. Acropol is great if you are happy to go with the flow, not be too...

A friend of mine recommended this place and what a great recommendation! The room I had was lovely. Very individual. The most beautiful roll top desk I have ever seen. If you are the type of person who says 'why would I want a roll top desk in my hotel room?' then maybe this isn't the place for you. I...

If you are looking for a laid back place to rest and regroup while on a long journey, this cozy and quirky hotel will fit the bill with great food and a relaxed atmosphere. The small staff works hard to make your stay comfortable, even going out to get items the guest may have forgotten or something the hotel does...

Wonderful, colonial, eclectic, no fake chrome and smoking mirrors. Food is wholesome, edible, as opposed to other places I could mention. Michelle the owner proprietor, mad as a box of frogs, but delightful and full of local knowledge. Love the place.

Certainly in need of a decent clean, if only to throw out the rusty furniture, buy by Morogoro standards there are many worse options. Our room as clean, the showers hot & excellent, and the food quite good. No credit cards are accepted, which seems as baffling as the stacks of boxes littering the bar/restaurant. Excellent breakfast, and made early...

I stayed here with a few friends last month. We were shown two rooms, one of which was dark and damp, the other, which we chose, was moderately better. The bed creaked and the quality of the mattress was rather poor. The local staff was very nice. The pizzas at the restaurant were pretty good, and breakfast was copious and...

This is a hotel I keep coming back to. This is not a hotel where you will find 'modern' chrome steel and glass fixtures that plague current Tanzanian hotels..what you will find is a hotel oozing with character, a warm welcome, brilliant enthusiastic staff, spacious rooms and did I mention the food? This is a place where food is the...

Stayed here during a 4-day visit. Very interesting layout - good shade and plenty of places to sit inside and outside for informal meetings. Pleasant, personal, and professional staff. Lots of interesting clutter. Room was spacious and functional, not fancy.. Not everything worked, but it was OK if you consider the price and don't have Hilton-style expectations. Fridge wasn't too...
