The whole experience was amazing, the pillows were extremely fluffy and the house keeping service was excellent. Another thing that I liked is how friendly everyone was. The best thing about my experience was the food, it was amazing and the service was the best; very quick and friendly. And I want to thank the food manager for being so friendly and kind to us.

Hotel's Favorite
Checked in on 13 August 2022. Stayed for 4 nights. I loved the variety of foods available on buffet nights. Food was simply delicious. They can however improve upon drinks available i.e. cocktails and start providing reliable, secure and interesting tours facilities. Service was impeccable and rooms are clean and cozy.

a colleague and I went to a conference on Income and Wealth in East Africa and stayed there. We had one or two decent meals in the restaurant. The keys needed to be re magnetised many times but otherwise it was a very ok hotel with a lovely garden and convenient taxis outside. The rooms had nice bathtubs though that is a waste of water in a water-poor country.

We had never been to Arusha or Tanzania for that matter. We chose the hotel based on reviews, location and proximity to the airport even though it was an hour away. It did not disappoint and we have travelled extensively

I've been here for 6 days already and will be staying here for an extra week. I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The rooms are very clean, the front desk staff is very helpful, and the restaurant has an amazing variety of food to choose from and very good service. I would especially like to thank MZEE, who works in the restaurant. I appreciate his professionalism and helpful nature, as well as his positive attitude. The experience is even better if he is serving your table. My experience at Mount Meru hotel has been excellent overall, and it will definitely be a go-to hotel for me in Arusha in the future.

Mount Meru Hotel is truly a gem in Arusha. My family and I were visiting Tanzania for a couple of weeks while we discovered Mount Meru Hotel. We needed up eating all our meals at the hotel’s restaurant and slowly began using their other facilities. Everything from their compound, front desk personal, waiters/waitresses, and management made us feel valued, respected, and taken care of. I decided to finally spend a couple of nights at the hotel to relax and enjoy all that Mount Meru Hotel has to offer. The hotel’s spa - Tulia Spa and the Tanganyika pool truly helped me decompress from my trip before leaving Tanzania. I would absolutely recommend Mount Meru Hotel for your next stay in Arusha, Tanzania. Regardless of what the purpose of your travel may be, I guarantee that you will feel at home and taken care of at Mount Meru Hotel!

We stayed here for a night while transiting from Arusha. The rooms are very well maintained and we had such an amazing view of Mount Meru. The landscaping in the area is gorgeous and the food (especially, the breakfast buffet) was really delicious!

Wonderful staff, beautiful grounds and delicious food. With a beautiful view of Mount Meru right outside the front door. We enjoyed our stay and if we ever return to Arusha we would go here again! We had a lovely meal poolside on our last night it was very special.
