I stayed at the Meru House Inn on two separate occasions in the first half of 2017, and both of my stays were very good. The price is reasonable, the beds are comfortable, breakfast is good, and the showers work well. I stayed here my first night in Tanzania and it was certainly different from a hotel in the United...

Short walk from bus station. restaurants etc. and walking distance to museum and other sites. Money changers a couple doors away. The lady at reception is great. Good complimentary breakfast in the restaurant, and good meals and beers. Couldn't get...

A friend recommended this place, and now I recommend it to others. Ok, the place doesn't look very cosy or anything. But rooms are clean and good value for money. It's only a few steps away from a big supermarket and a square with restaurants. Also: not far from the airport. Staff is friendly, and they offer good cheap food.

We had a twin room. Everything was clean, mosquito nets were there and in a good shape. Laundry service cleaned my clothes on the same day. Showers have hot water which worked very well. Breakfast was very good with toasted bread, omelette, sausages,...

I stayed at Meru Inn several times over the past couple of years, most of the times alone and always felt safe. Meru is basic but clean, the rooms come with en-suite bathrooms and hot water, both nice extras that you can't expect in all of Arushas low-budget places! It's definitely good value for money!! It's just down the street...

At this hotel you get a nice and clean room with integrated bathroom. They have hotwater at all times and the rooms have a nice atmosphere. Breakfast is included. Friendly staff who were honest and helped us out and explained the best way for us to get to Moshi.

Stayed here either side of our Kilimanjaro climb, nice feel about the place, with helpful staff and a good restaurant on site. Good location (with supermarket down the road. Rooms are good, with tv to help pass the time (if you're broken from the climb like I was!)

I stayed in the touristic part situated in the upper part of this hotel for one night. It was my first experience in Africa and did very well. Bed was comfortable and shower had hot water. No noises were heard in my room. Unfortunately I didn't have breakfast because I had to leave early.

Cheap rooms and food. Clean but a bit run down... Quiet place, no views or scenery but the rooms are peaceful and relaxing.The WiFi isn't great in all the rooms. Hot water is available! Staff are nice. It's in a good location, being quite close to other restaurants, the bus stand etc. I've stayed here both alone and with a...
