After a Kilimanjaro climb, I stayed here for one night. It was a welcome change after a week and a half in tents with no shower. The bar, restaurant and veranda were tastefully decorated and clean, and service was good though the dinner buffet was disappointingly mundane as to food quality. My room was excellent. The bed was exquisitely comfortable... More

My brother and I stayed here for one night after a Kilimanjaro Climb. After ten days in tents nearly anything was going to be an improvement. The room was pleasant and the bed comfortable, the shower was plenty hot. The atmosphere and grounds were pleasant as well. My only complaint was the buffet dinner was mediocre at best. Breakfast was... More

The Mount Meru is a great place to stay whilst in Arusha. They have a beautiful pool to relax and unwind after a busy day. The food at the two restaurants is average. (Having said that I am kind of a food snob though) I would certainly stay here again.

Good rooms and very clean. Food is ok and there is a nice outside area by the pool. Good starting point for who is going on safaris or to climb Kilimanjaro. Most of the staff very friendly. overall is a good option if overnight in Arusha is a must.

Friendly staff, clean well-appointed rooms, and a great breakfast buffet made this a good choice for us. This hotel was recently renovated and rooms have been modernized. The staff was very professional and cheerful.

As we were literally stopping over we didn't use the pool or any other facilities. The room was clean and comfortable with a great view of Mount Meru. The staff were helpful and friendly... More

The hotel room is clean and modern, bed is comfortable. This seems to be a conference hotel in town, you can find business man and women during happy hour. Nice garden and swimming pool. The wifi coverage is good in every part of the hotel. The breakfast is OK but not a lot of choice. The pizza and barbeque food... More
