Excellent service, the check in service was great, the breakfast service was also great maybe try to keep entertainment at least once a week (like live performance music) to keep the restaurants going also from keeping the guests from going out to find more entertainment

Dear hortensialekule, Thank you for posting your wonderful review on Tripadvisor. We are thrilled to learn that your experience at Mount Meru Hotel was pleasant, and you enjoyed the excellent services provided by our colleagues, the hotel facilities and the breakfast offerings prepared by our talented culinary team; thank you for sharing with us such remarkable comments. It will be my pleasure to share your feedback with the team; they will be delighted to know that our guests value their efforts, especially during this challenging period.

I have shared your feedback with the F&B Manager for further review and implementation. Once again, thank you for staying with us during your visit to Arusha, and we all look forward to welcoming you back soon at Mount Meru Hotel, your home away from home. Best regards, Purity Munge Sales & Marketing Manager

Hotel's Favorite
I had the chance stay for a few days at Mount Meru Hotel. Compare to others hotel which I visited here in Arusha, the Mount Meru Hotel is the best! I left with a feeling like I was leaving a family and a place where you can feel like home. The hotel is immersed in a stunning garden. I loved having breakfast in the terrace and enjoy the amazing surrounding nature and the sing of colorful birds. The infinity pool immerse in the garden is a truly relaxing experience. Breakfast [unforgettable the tasty and fresh fruit selection] as well as dinner are excellent, even for a vegetarian like me, I -finally- had the opportunity to choose through several option! Thank you again! Staff are very kind and professional, happy, and prompt to assist you for any documentation or booking you might need. Rooms are very clean, and the hygiene is really high. Remarkable are all the safety measures used against COVID 19, which makes me feel very comfortable! Wi-Fi works great: fast, and consistent! Definitively, I will come back again! Thank you All for such great and amazing experience!

Although we stayed here for a short while, the service we received was enough to make us want to extend our stay there another night. Everyone was amazing and nice in the way they welcomed and made sure we had everything we needed. Our next trrip to Arusha will definitely have Mount Meru Hotel as a stop.

A decent hotel with committed and friendly staff but you need a proper gym. Your room refrigerators are also not cold enough. The Noah taxis outside the hotel are charging exorbitant fees e.g. TZS 10,000 just to drop one at AICC. You should reign over them as they are tarnishing your image

Dear Allan, Thank you for posting your review on Tripadvisor following your recent stay at Mount Meru Hotel. We are thankful for the positive comment about our friendly team members and noted the constructive feedback about the temperature of the minibar in your room and the gym facilities. Please rest assured that I have shared your concern with the Maintenance Manager to review the performance of the minibar in the room you were staying in. Kindly accept our sincere apologies for any inconveniences caused to you in this regard, and I pleased to share with you that we have planned to upgrade the gym facilities, the project will be completed by the end of quarter four this year. The new gym facilities will be a great addition to the service provided at the Mount Meru Hotel and will enhance the guest experience. Concerning the private taxi service located on the main road near the hotel, these are private companies not associated with our hotel; thus, we are not able to comment or determine the price of each fare offered by them; however, the hotel provides a dedicated taxi service to all guests that are requesting the service via the Concierge desk. Once again, thank you for staying with us, and we all look forward to welcoming you back soon at the Mount Meru Hotel. Warm regards, Purity Munge Sales & Marketing Manager

Its nice hotel calm but the rooms need an upgrade, there is no value for money. I have stayed in hotel in Thailand with the 1/4 the price and the rooms are much better. Also poor amenities, why no bedroom slip ons.
