This hotel is so comfortable. The rooms were spacious. The bed was enormous and so comfortable. The restaurant was excellent. The staff were helpful. The gift shop was great and I purchased a wonderful birding book there that was so useful for our trip. This was a good launching point for our trip.

Me and my wife we stayed at the Mount Meru after disapointed stay in Next Paradise of Zanzibar. We could not believe how well we were treated. It was like we were the only people in the hotel. We arrived late, and the dinning room was empty. The cook and wait staff still waited for us and gladly took our order and served a great meal before they went home. The rooms were large, with AC, and a very modern bathroom. I highly recommend the Mount Meru; what a great place to spend!!.

i recently spent a few days in Mount Meru. upon arrival and throughout my stay i was suprised about the unfriendliness of the reception. there was an unwillingness to assist in everything, I felt uncomfortable each time I had to deal with them.Service: It took endless long to get dinner; service at breakfast, lunch and dinner, was not particularly friendly, room service forgot to fill up on sugar, creamer, etc, every day. Once I found my blanket and cushions thrown on the floor as I came back to my room at night. i had the feeling staff was not trained sufficiently nor motivated, it simply did not make me feel at home or confortable, even though its a nice Hotel.

Stayed here before and after our Serengeti Safari. At first arrival I though the hotel looked like a typical 70's cookie cutter Sheraton that had been remodeled. While that was somewhat true as a first impression, it unfolded to be a wonderful experience in terms of comfort, food and service.

Our suite was very well appointed and spacious. The only fault I would have is we found the lighting in all the rooms (we saw several) to be quite dim/dark to our standards. This is pretty much true in most of Tanzania as electrical power can sometimes be iffy, and I understand it is quite expensive to operate. So just be prepared to turn every LED/Energy saver light on, and then bring flashlights!

Common areas were very nice, always seemed bustling with mix of Safari guests and conventions and meetings. Never felt crowded.

Food buffet was quite good. A nice variety for all palettes. Lot's of Indian food focused as the main entrees, but there were others as well.

Staff was friendly, helpful and very responsive.

I would highly recommend this property as it is out of the congestion of Arusha, has nice rolling hills & Mt Meru views, and is very modern and comfortable.

As far as value for price paid - I would say met my expectations.

From the moment you arrive, you are made to feel welcome. Spacious room overlooking Mt. Meru. Well appointed room and good sized bathroom. Very accommodating housekeeping, especially considering that many of their guests come off of either Mt. Kilimanjaroo or Mt. Meru and are in need of (multiple) showers and clean, dry clothes.

Want to mention the buffet restaurant and outdoor, terrace bar. Both had wonderful, friendly staff with really good food at the restaurant and an awesome view at the bar. Plus the free wifi was very nice after 9 days without any contact. Near perfect hotel in a fairly out-of-the-way location.

Room Tip: There appear to be 2 wings...I'd suggest getting one that faces Mt. Meru (and the front of the hotel) for a better view...and there's no problem with street noise.
