I went to this hotel with my son and daughter for swimming and lunch a couple of times, We have a wonderful experience there with staff treating us as very special customers, The Dining Room Manager Gaston always was very professional and makes us feel at home.

Mount Meru hotel is a luxurious escape in the heart of cheap hotels and hostels, make no mistake you pay for the luxury but if a 5 star western style hotel is what you seek then Mount Meru is your answer. It has 2 restaurants on site, a giftshop, an armed ATM, pool bar with additional pizza restaurant along with...

This should be my third visit to this hotel. It's Clean. Good lighting. Courteous staff. Good food, especially breakfast. Very good location, and once the road is finished it will be even better. Only one little thing I hope/ wish they could work on is the bathrooms (in the rooms). Maybe Install a door in the shower area so the...

Despite ongoing road construction passing by the entrance, the hotel is a peaceful and secure oasis. The grounds are large, well maintained and were great for taking leisurely walks and sighting Mt Meru on a clear day. There is a swimming pool near the pizza/BBQ area which seemed popular with families on a Sunday. The hotel has an open design...

This is a really nice hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were clean, breakfast was amazing, and the grounds are beautiful. There was one really, really big problem though - almost no water pressure in the shower (somehow water pressure in the sink was fine). The water trickled out of half of the shower. After a five-day camping safari...

The rooms are nice and clean. Exceptional breakfast !!! All the products was of a great quality and there was big variety. Internet speed is quite good for Arusha. Service in the reception not so professional though. Great delay in the check-in and not proper recommendation for dining. Generally is a good hotel to choose after or before Safari.

So it goes like this: our tour company took us to the Mount Meru for lunch. And it was perhaps one of the worst experienced I had in my trip to Tanzania and Kenya. The hotel staff member who showed us to the restaurant seemed a bit vacant. Me: "what types of conference do you hold here?" Him: "Conferences". Me...
