Lonely Planet just launched the 4th edition of the Lonely Planet Tanzania Travel Guide (ISBN:  9781741045550 / 392 pp / 24 pp colour / 73 maps / next scheduled release date: May 2011).
2 years after both the previous edition and the opening of Onsea House, we are now listed in the Guide to Accommodation in Tanzania of this popular Guide book and also online as “A new lovely place self-described with some accurracy as the ‘best luxury bed and breakfast in Arusha’. Each room has its own theme, there’s a bar and small restaurant, and gardens. Very tranquil and classy…” (p. 201).
Onsea House is among the few recommended places on the East side of Arusha and the closest of the hotels outside the city center.
