Hotel is getting quite old and many of the features are very old-fashioned or don't work. Dark furnishings in bedrooms, leaking shower tray (in both the rooms I had over a two-week stay), electric sockets in the breakfast area non-functional, etc. But it has a lovely pool area and nice grounds overlooking the golf course one way and Mt Meru...

The hotel is quite nice, on manicured grounds next to a golf course. The rooms are spacious and include a refrigerator, flat screen tv, and more westernized bathrooms.There is also a nice fitness room in the hotel as well as a few restaurants/bars (though one, by the front desk, was closed our entire stay). Staff is extremely personable and gracious.... More

The Mount Meru has a very prominent location just outside "downtown" Arusha. The property is large, with a lovely garden, pool, ample grounds and parking. We were here on business/pleasure, one suite and two rooms. The suite and rooms are smart and suitable. We have stayed here before and all facilities combined the Mount Meru does come out on top....

It has an amazing pool, loads of free parking and such good food, but warning, the food is over prised and the service is very slow. It has wonderful but small crowded rooms. It also has amazing flowers, it is an amazing place for photo shoots.

We only stayed here by default for 1 night, because the tour company we had booked through, had made a mess of the flights and hotel bookings and we arrived in Arusha to find we were not expected for another 24 hours - so no bed when we arrived. The only room they could find for us was at the... More

I stayed here for 2 nights on business, the hotel itself was outstanding and the coffee I bought in the little shop was delicious when we had it back home. The view of Mount Meru was brilliant. I just felt sad when I was eating breakfast the day I was leaving knowing how poor the area is as they were... More

Arusha is a small town in Tanzania nestled between the Meru Mountain and Mount Kilimanjaro. Unfortunately I arrived on a cloudy day and only got a glimpse of both. My disappointment was quickly forgotten once I arrived at the hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The driver offered to take me around town where I could buy Tanzanite... More

we stayed here for two days. The hotel is modern and beautiful Rooms are well appointed, spacious and clean Only drawback was the shower stalls had no doors or curtains and water splashed all over while taking a shower. The bathtubs were too deep and had for older members of our party to get in or out. Since they had... More

Have stayed a couple of times here and always a pleasant stay. Clean, tidy, good facilities, excellent service...everything you would want from a good quality commercial hotel. Problem is, when you're in such an exotic and beautiful area, one wants something really quaint and different. It was however a business trip, so It provided what was required and very well... More
