We stayed at Christina House during our visit to Arusha with friends. The service was excellent, very clean and tidy rooms, great food, and very friendly staff; all at very affordable and negotiable rates! I highly recommend Christina House for anyone visiting Arusha and its environs.

My husband and I stayed at Christina House with our two boys (aged 7 and 9), and my father, while we were on safari in December 2016. As it was the first place we stayed after arriving in Tanzania after many tiring hours of travel, we were so relieved at its comfort and charm! We were pleased with the rooms...

The staff made me feel very welcome. I enjoyed my tea on the upstairs patio. The meals were very good. My room was attractive and clean. The bed was very comfortable with clean linen. There is lots of hot water for a shower. The bathroom is ensuite.

I stayed here 3 nights and then another night when we returned from our trip. Helen who works the kitchen is an amazing woman and chef. Unlike many other places I've stayed, she'll make sure to cook what you're craving that day and make it delicious. The rest of the staff are extremely friendly. One of the guys even walked...

We were there for 2 nights. Peaceful setting once you get past the noise and construction of the highway at the door. Staff were friendly, helpful, and the garden setting was lovely, with a guest terrace that was comfortable and inviting. Helen, the chef, was warm, welcoming, spoke perfect English, and prepared delicious breakfasts and suppers.

Stayed one night. They were welcoming and helpful. The room was clean and nice. Breakfast was really good! Fruit, eggs, avocado, crepes, juice, drinks etc I think she was a little disappointed that we didn't eat more, but we were so full 😁 It's a bit out of the city but that suited us.

This has to be hands down the best place to stay in Arusha! Whenever I plan my next trip back to Africa, I will make a point to go back and stay here. I traveled to Tanzania with a group of 11 back in May 2016 and Christina's House was one the highlights of out entire trip. The staff treated...
