Hotel's Favourite
I had the chance stay for a few days at Mount Meru Hotel. Compare to others hotel which I visited here in Arusha, the Mount Meru Hotel is the best! I left with a feeling like I was leaving a family and a place where you can feel like home. The hotel is immersed in a stunning garden. I loved having breakfast in the terrace and enjoy the amazing surrounding nature and the sing of colorful birds. The infinity pool immerse in the garden is a truly relaxing experience. Breakfast [unforgettable the tasty and fresh fruit selection] as well as dinner are excellent, even for a vegetarian like me, I -finally- had the opportunity to choose through several option! Thank you again! Staff are very kind and professional, happy, and prompt to assist you for any documentation or booking you might need. Rooms are very clean, and the hygiene is really high. Remarkable are all the safety measures used against COVID 19, which makes me feel very comfortable! Wi-Fi works great: fast, and consistent! Definitively, I will come back again! Thank you All for such great and amazing experience!

After my 3 days Mount Kilimanjaro hike I decided to spend two nights in Mount Meru, it was one of the best hotels in Arusha. The service is 5 star, the staffs are very accomodating, the room has an amazing view. The food is also good. The price is on the high side compared to other hotels in Arusha but it's worth it. I really enjoyed my stay here.
