The room size is not too bad if you stay in the original building but the noise from the road can be too much for a light sleeper. I believe the rooms in the new wig are much quieter but they are also very small indeed. The bed and linen was nice enough for a decents night sleep.
What is not so good...
The wifi is US$20 per 24 hours which is a little sleep seeing as a majority of clinst are one nighters only!
Not one TV channel worked, I managed to get snow storms constantly. Did not complain at the time as I was in for one night and arrived into the room well after dinner and left just after breakfast. There was also no back to the battery compartment of the remote.
Most irritating is that the air conditioing is set on the wall of the bathroom and aimed directly on the pillows. There was no remote control (the remote control holder is attached close to the headboard but is empty) even a though search of the room yielded nothing. There i sno control panel on the wall either. I ended up turning the machine off from the machine itself, even though it required a chair to do it. Thankfully not too hot, would have been a different story if it was January to March which is the hot season in arusha.
In all honesty stay at the Mount Meru, higher price bracket but much better in every way.
