I have often been asked why I come back to the Meikles. Many of my colleagues stay at a B&B instead. I stay in the new part of the hotel, find everything convenient, easy transport and anything else I need. Check in and check out was a bit of a challenge this time. The staff seemed young and inexperienced, which...

Although on the expensive side but Meikles is still the best kept secret of Harare, with exceptional customer service. The internet works very well. Excellent selection of buffet and a la carte restaurants, and plenty of options for breakfast. Ticks all the right boxes.

I spent a lot of time in Harare on Business and always stayed in the Meikles. I have stayed in the Meikles on 99 trips to Harare! The staff are super friendly and have always treated me well. I don't think there is a nicer hotel in Zimbabwe.

Meikles Hotel has a very rich history, opened its door to business in 1915 by Thomas Meikles and ever since has remained in the Meikles family. Very ideal for business meetings with several meeting rooms. Also very good for relaxation as well with numerous bars. Friendly staff and services well above average. Has all the features of a five-star hotel.

I stayed in the renovated wing which was just perfect (modern furniture, very warm decoration, coffee/tee facilities, good room service) I am basically just commenting to give a 5-star and strongly recommend the massage service which was the best I have ever had so far (and this is not an exaggeration)
