Mt Meru Hotel in Arusha is not your usual safari lodge, it reminds more of an European business hotel with a slight African touch. The rooms are clean and modern, the different restaurants serve all kinds of different food and the hotel has a very beautiful terrace. We recommend a stay here for one night, either before or after a safari. If you chose to stay 2 nights or more in Arusha we recommend a lodge. For more information read our other reviews...

Hotel's Favorite
Our room was lovely and the views were great. The grounds around the hotel are very well taken care of and they have a nice pool and outdoor bar area. The pool was a little chilly for our liking, but there were many people enjoying it. The restaurants on-site offer nice meals. The breakfast spread is quite nice with many options. The dinner buffet was alright, but I would recommend ordering off the menu instead. The pool bar offered some nice food items - pizza and salad were really yummy. Our room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was also nice with modern features. We had a nice stay and would stay again if in the area.

Great grounds, pool and Golf Course too! Rooms are very clean and comfortable, food is outstanding. Very close to everything you need, especially a mall/stores. Kilimanjaro Airport is about an hour away, but there isn't anything as nice closer.

Thank you for a great stay: Many positives! Location is super off the main road, plenty of secured parking. The rooms, have all the amenities required, keep the shower running a little to get warm-hot water! If it's possible for the hotel to change from offering plastic water bottles to glass, plastic wrapped soaps etc this would be super for the environment! The views of the garden from the room are beautiful. Breakfast buffet was super and the staff and chef made an extra effort to meet our dietary requirements. What a pleasant surprise that on the second day of our stay the staff / chef remembered and came to our table again to ask to prepare something additional to meet our requirements - extremely considerate and caring which went above and beyond our expectation! Many thanks and we hope to be back in the future.

We spent a total of 5 nights at this hotel. The rooms and the grounds are both really nice. Even nicer are the people that work here. Very friendly and helpful and most everyone speaks some English but are also willing to take the time to help you practice your Swahili! Comfy beds, good restaurant, excellent coffee shop and a pool. Also right behind the hotel is a golf course! I have no idea what it’s like but I did see people playing later in the day when it cools off.
