Meikles Hotel has a very rich history, opened its door to business in 1915 by Thomas Meikles and ever since has remained in the Meikles family. Very ideal for business meetings with several meeting rooms. Also very good for relaxation as well with numerous bars. Friendly staff and services well above average. Has all the features of a five-star hotel.

I'm always staying at Meikles when in Harare. Very nice hotel, very nice staff, choices of restaurants and bars! ... But don't go there for the pool option... as it is really for business reasons... The Executive Lounge si also very friendly and nice.

The staff are very attentive. The hotel itself has an older feel, but was clean and had all of the services necessary to conduct business for the two weeks I was there.

This hotel is old and that shouldn’t be a bad thing but it’s décor, furniture, accessories are from another life-time. WHAT I LIKE The staff are the friendliest in the world – they disarm you with their services and helpfulness.

I stayed in the renovated wing which was just perfect (modern furniture, very warm decoration, coffee/tee facilities, good room service) I am basically just commenting to give a 5-star and strongly recommend the massage service which was the best I have ever had so far (and this is not an exaggeration)
