There is also the Holiday hotel (not to be confused with the holiday inn) on Jamhuri street, right near by the others, which is generally a bit cheaper. A double was around 8,000 tz shillings a night when I was there (the single rooms are like closets, not really recommended). The nice thing about the holiday is the lack of touts that hang around the other hotels. All the main cheap hotels are within easy walking distance of eathother, so if you get a taxi from the airport to any of them, you can walk around and ask to see a room.
