Ethiopia in Tanzania Jul 06, 2013
This is Ethiopia in Tanzania - a hotel-cum-restaurant run by an Ethiopian family and their absolutely superb staff. Efrem and his wife, the owners of the place, and their team, take personal care of their guests, and are great company to hang out with. When I told them that I hadn't pre-booked my safari and wanted to organise one, they not only called various safari operators on the phone but also got them over to the hotel to talk to me. The place itself is nothing fancy - just basic rooms with attached baths - and can even give the feeling of being a tad run down at times, but this is amply made up by the service of the staff who are always smiling and eager to help. The prices are very reasonable - this is great value for money - and the location is in a nice quiet part of Arusha, just a few minutes by taxi from the centre. There is free wifi, a computer room, and free luggage storage.
The restaurant serves authentic Ethiopian food - possibly the only of its kind in Arusha - with a variety of delicious traditional stews atop the sourdough injera. It's a nice place to relax in over a meal, drinks or lovely Ethiopian coffee.
