We stayed at the Arc twice, both coming from and going to a remote rural setting. The staff is friendly and welcoming, the bed is comfortable, and once we worked out the water heater switch, there was plenty of hot water. Breakfast was pretty standard. The Arc also has a restaurant, where we ate both times we stayed. We had...

This is one of the conveniently located hotel, just off the highway; it is useful for a one nights stay, not more. The facilities are a bit dated, and the hotel could benefit from a refurbishment. The rooms are basic, the toilet was small and a bit tight. Food is average, with some concerns on hygiene. It is located close...

Thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay just off the main road at Morogoro. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming to very weary travellers who had only just survived the gridlocked exit from Dar. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The food delivered to the room was excellent and the bed with good mosquito nets was excellent. As with other...

I can understand your comments about the Tanzanian wine, but there are prospects for improvements. The type of grapes used are unique for Tanzania – according to the manager of Alko Vintages in Dodoma where the wine is produced. In fact, after decanting the wine for about half an hour or more, the taste improves considerably … . Your reference...
