Meikles hotel has the antique architecture yet offers very friendly service to the guests. The internet can be sometimes an issue but overall, what else do you expected? You are in TIA (This is Africa) zone. The breakfast buffet was so delicious and the room service was great. I truly enjoyed everything about this hotel.

This Hotel is way overpriced and charges for everything.... Including water at your $20 lunch. They don't offer tap water, but still charge for basic bottled water. Internet never works... Everywhere else in Harare seems to have good internet except for the Meikles. Their login system blocks and kicks you out a lot so it is barely operational... When it... More

It is gravely disappointing for us at Meikles to see that your frustrations caused you to post such a negative review. Yes, the Meikles Wi-Fi causes some challenges from time to time and we are aggressively reviewing the entire system on a daily basis. For example we have increased the pods (repeaters) around the hotel to enhance reception in more... More

Thank you Alison for your rave review – you just loved “everything.” It’s excellent that you mentioned our rooftop pool (with a great view over the city skyline) and the sauna, reserved exclusively for guests. Many business people travel with partners who find our rooftop a wonderful spot to relax. There’s also a state-of-the-art gymnasium. Tinashe Munjoma (General Manager). More
