This is a very good place to stay if you want something on a budget, but also want something privat. The rooms are very nice, clean, have a tv (with HBO) and a nice private bathroom. The staff is very helpful. It is located right in the city center, which was very good.

Stayed: February 2017, travelled with friends

It is clean with comfortable beds. The breakfast is simple but good. It is 2 blocks from the bus station, not far from the Clock Tower. Plenty places to eat and shop in the neighborhood, although it is not advised to walk around much in the evening. Best to take a taxi.
The staff is very friendly. I can just recommend it if you don't mind to wake up early to the muezzin.

Room Tip: The wifi doesn't work on the second floor

Affordable, nice and clean place.
Decided to stay here the night before and after our safari.
Both times we showed up without reserving and got rooms without problem.
Room are really clean and there is even hot water in showers.
We had to pay the locals price only which was a nice surprise. They price the single room at 25usd for foreigners and 25,000tzh for locals. Double room is 35$/35,000tzh respectively.
Only downside is the "local alarmclock", like 5 different mosques start blasting prayers through speakers at 4am every morning. They also continue for over an hour.. This is isn't the hotels fault though.

Located centrally in Arusha, this hotel is very convenient, although noise from the street and nearby mosques can be disturbing. The noise from the hallway and neighboring rooms can also be an issue.
Free, simple breakfast. No other meals available. The hotel is clean.
Staff barely speak English.
No internet access.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the street, then you will have access to a private balcony.

Hotels in Aurusha tend to be expensive. Prices at the Flamingo are fair although I would call it more a guest house than a hotel. Very clean although the bedroom furniture was well used. My room did not have a tv , a bracket was on the wall, although only channel seemed to be Aljazeera News. Breakfast was minimalist and would be better taken outside. Beware that at 5am the local mullah will blast out, followed by others.
