Still a hint of colonial charm in this hotel. It has all the things you need: great free wifi, piping hot water, clean rooms, stunning soft sheets, tranquility and good food - in fact some of the food has become top notch. Its staff are really great people, nicely formal yet personal, a joy to meet. Despite brown not being... More

I went back to Harare to officially open a memorial library and was just there for 3 days! However, I couldn't resist a stop at the Meikles for the mandatory high tea on my way to the airport! I asked to see the GM to congratulate him on the unchanging excellent service but unfortunately they were busy :( Next time... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by the hotel. Good old dame of an age gone by, immaculately restored. The best pillows I've ever slept on. The breakfast was average. I found the in room dining average. Staff are helpful and genuinely friendly.

On a globetrotting expedition, we picked London, Harare, Vic Falls and Cape Town. After much research for a lodging in Harare, all roads pointed to Meikles. Staff customer service was superb! Breakfast had variety. The South wing could use some facelift.

Stayed there for a night and was happy with the comfortable stay. Pleasant staff and good room service. Food is very inexpensive and rooms are clean and well maintained. Had a nice view of the park in front of the hotel. Lots of channels to enjoy if staying indoors. 20 mins drive to the Mukuvisi Woodlands for a half day... More

I spend a week in Meikles mid June, the place is confortable and the room well maintained. I was first on the back side of the Hotel with a direct view on eastgate mall, not really nice, but then I had the opportunity to move on African Union square view, it was much better. The service is good, and people... More

Sure, the hotel has seen better times and could do with a massive upgrade, but it still is an institution, and must get kudos for having survived the ups and downs of Zimbabwe's economic struggles. Service is exemplary and friendly, food is good, the facilities are nice, and while the outside may look a bit drab, the inside of the... More

The food is bad and as a frequent visitor I hope to see some improvement soon. The meals need to be improved, you may consider getting a new chef with new ideas. The food presentation also needs to be worked on. On the 14th of Jun 2014, I ordered pork chops and was told that they do not have, I... More
