Stayed there for a biz trip. And enjoyed pretty much everything from location (walking distance for all major biz locations in city center) to service. Hint: use lounge on 11th floor for breakfast, same price, but the whole different quality and view (and staff there will make your day too). The only complain is Internet access routine, but I didn't... More

I have stayed at this property several times and this visit saw me in the newly renovated wing. I have to say considerable improvement is noted over the last ten years or so. My room was perfectly fine and I can not find fault. The restaurant breakfast and lunch was reasonable in quality and quantity. Nothing overly special but good... More

Very nice hotel. I stayed for 7 nights in the more recently renovated North Wing. Nice views of Africa Unity Square from my room. Food in La Fontaine was good, if not a little repetitive. Eunice, one of the chefs at breakfast was a bright spot to each morning's breakfast service. One piece of advice/feedback: if you book an excursion... More

Hotel was charming, although was looking a little tired and the service was mixed. The functions staff were invisible and non responsive although the check in staff and restaurant staff were helpful and friendly. Restaurant was good for breakfast but mixed for dinner - don't order any pasta dishes but the steak is good. My shower didn't work for the... More

Our family had a wonderful visit for almost a week, and it really began to feel like home to us. The hotel itself is beautiful, well kept and the decor is lovely. The staff was excellent and over time, many of them came to be our friends. The restaurants are beautiful and the large banquet room is breathtaking. Our concerns... More

I have been visiting Harare since 2002 and without any doubts remains my favourite destination in the SADC region. Have after swapping many hotels in Harare settled on Meikles for all these years. I must applaud you that the check in upon arrival is always swift and the porter services efficient and amicable at all times. Previously you couldn't take... More

Greetings Nkosana. Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor and I am sorry you found your most recent stay to be disappointing. Almost a year ago we spent US$9m on upgrading all public areas and also creating a new, magnificent North Wing. Unfortunately the budgets precluded us from proceeding with a total refurbishment of...

I was very impressed with the quality of service, the amenities, and professionalism at this hotel. It truly was the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. It was surprising given the area in which it was located.

I spent only one night in Harare and I was charmed by the Meikles Hotel. From my booking experience, through pick-up and to drop-off at the airport everything was perfect. The amenities were not lacking at all, except that I could not make the most of them. The staff ensured that I did not feel like a stranger in Harare.... More
