You just can't help hearing that song by Toto as you drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport to the town of Arusha. Whether you're there for an African safari or just passing through, the Mount Meru is the only place I'd consider staying. There are a couple other hotels in Arusha that rise to the level a western traveler would expect,... More

We stayed at Mount Meru Hotel, at the end of July, for just one night, before setting of for a great safari. It was really a very nice hotel, truly relaxing and comfortable. As we were coming from a very long air trip, we desperately needed a place like that. The room was spacious and bright, mainly due to the... More

Nice modern hotel with many pleasant staff who are eager to help. The guest relations manager (Aisha) was wonderful and always went out of her way to help with any requests, doing so with an ever-present smile. The ambiance of the rooms is wonderful whether the golf course view or the mountain view. Overall this is a very good hotel... More

I stayed for one niht at the Mount Meru hotel in Arusha as part of a tour of the north of Tanzania. The hotel is modern and well kept, rooms are spacious and clean and they offer all amenities. Common areas are pleasant, well furnished with a nice old-Africa style. There are some restaurants (which we did not try) but... More

I was greatly disappointed with the services offered. I asked for adapter and it was not sent to the room. Then asked twice to send iron and iron table to the room which too was not sent. Further when I came to the room, the room was not made up. I had to call house keeping to complete the work... More

We stayed at the Mount Meru hotel before and after our Kilimanjaro climb. Service at the hotel wasn't the best, with check in seeming a bit chaotic and taking a long time, but aside from that the rooms were a good size, clean and comfortable. There seems to be a bit of an issue with the showers flooding the bathrooms... More

The hotel is 6 floors modern with huge grounds. The rooms are modern and equipped with tea/coffee making facility, safe, air-conditioning and a flat screen tv. There is a great pool area and several restaurants. A small gym but enough to keep the body toned. A spa is also situated on the same floor as the gym. Unfortunately power cuts... More

I've stayed here few times and I've always enjoyed my stays. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. They arranged shuttle for me to the airport, called to follow up on the pick up time. Good weekly happy hour on Thursdays, I will definitely go back.

We spent 2 nights here. Except for the person who checked us in at reception, the service has not been great. Everyone gives the vibe of not caring. At breakfast, for example, no one came up to seat us, and after standing around for a few minutes we decide to seat ourselves - a waitress finally comes up to us... More
