Arusha/Kilimanjaro - distance and accommodation?

I could be going to Arusha early in the New Year for business. Some preliminary research has come up with a few questions and I hope that somebody can help.

The best air connections from South Africa would be to Kilimanjaro but the actual business is in Arusha - three questions:

- How far is it from Kilimanjaro Airport to Arusha?
- Is there public transport between the two places?
- What accommodation would you recommend? 3 star and up.

Thank you very much for your help!

It is about a 40 min drive from the airport to Arusha. We stayed at the Novotel Mt. Meru Hotel. It was a reasonable hotel, with average sized rooms. There was a beautiful view of the landscape from the hotel. I don't know about transportation.

You have to go to Kilimanjaro airport because the airport at Arusha is minimal.

Dave is right about the distance between Kilimanjaro Airport and Arusha. A couple of other accomodations you may want to look into are the Moivaro Coffee Plantation, which is on the outskirts of town and is maybe a three, or the Impala Hotel, which is in town and is quite nice. We had dinner there one night and were floored by the menu choices. It is a popular place for tourists embarking on safari. As for public transportation between the airport and the city, your best bet is to get a taxi. The buses we saw are crowded and old and I would question whether you would arrive safely at your destination.
