Great Hotel for All Types of Travelers
I came to Arusha for a conference which was held here at the Mount Meru Hotel. A friend encouraged me to stay elsewhere, but for the sake of convenience, I decided to ignore that advice. Am I glad I did! in addition to the aforementioned convenience of being in the conference hotel, I truly enjoyed my stay. Everyone was extremely nice and courteous, friendly and helpful. The rooms were very well attended to at least twice per day, with turn down service as a standard. The bed was comfortable, the room was spacious and nice, and the grounds have a lot of greenery. The restaurant food was good as well, with a full breakfast included as part of the stay. The fitness room, which seems to be an issue in other reviews, was perfectly fine though a bit small. I had probably the best pedicure in the local spa with a huge amount of attention to detail. I love the hotel!

Mt Meru Hotel
My stay was great. Enjoyed the hospitality. The only drawback was the state of the gym. It is in absolute shambles for a nice hotel such as this.

Cheerful, professional staff
Arrived late and reception was cheerful and expecting me. Very courteous service throughout from maid assuring me that I didn’t need to hurry with vacating the room to offers of showing me to the breakfast room. Very quiet and attractive place.

The Best Hotel In Arusha.
The best hotel in Arusha Tanzania. Excellent location with a Golf course on the left side and Mount Meru in-front so near that you feel like you can tourch it. It is beautiful. Awesome views all round.

Poor 2.0
Horrible service and fraudulent transaction
We had a horrible time at the hotel. Horrible wi-fi, the swimming pool timing was very odd - 11 am to 5 pm, couldn't use the pool any day. The service was pathetic, employees misrepresented the meal costs etc. So much chaotic. The picture on website doesn't match with the actual facilities at the hotel. On top of that, the hotel fraudulently charged extra amount from our debit card without our authorisation after one day from our check out. In a nutshell, we will never go to this hotel and will strongly recommend no one to go there.

GREAT stay!! VERY clean and comfortable!!
We had a GREAT stay at Mt. Meru Hotel for two nights prior to a 7 day safari. The rooms were large and very clean. The beds were also very comfortable. EXCELLENT guest service all the way from the front desk to the welcoming hospitality of the restaurant staff!! The lunch and dinner buffets were fantastic with a great selection for everyone. Would definitely stay at Mt. Meru Hotel again and highly recommend.

Great convenient hotel keeping up standards
It is good hotel and a great location for getting around Arusha and environs if you are here for work. WIFI is very weak and needs be improved a lot. Otherwise the hotel is trying to keep up standards. The food in the a la carte restaurant could be much better. The need to get a real chef in and update and revamp the menu.
