Meru View Lodge
Ranked #21 of 175 Speciality Lodging in Arusha
Reviewed 22 December 2009

We stayed here 2 nights before and 2 nights having climbed Mt Kilimanjaro + 1 night before flying to Zanzibar. The lodge has a good location between Airport/Kilimanjaro and Arusha/Safari (approx. 45mn by car each). You can even walk to the entry of the Arusha NP and you have nice views on Mt Meru. It is a simple but well run lodge, with a nice pool, restaurant and coy atmosphere. They have some bigger rooms that are very nice with a terrace and some smaller that are just for 1 night. They help you organising your tour to Kilimanjaro and gave us good tips on how to go to visit the sunday market in the town nearby, which was a fantastic experience - very friendly people! You can store your luggages here as well, while visiting other parts of the country.
It is true that it was a bit cold in the night due to the altitude , but we had our sleeping bags (because of Kili) and it was fun. Also it was great to wake up around 8h in the morning, going outside the room and standing in a quiet green garden with trees and a lot of birds singing plus the sun coming and heating up everything.

I stayed at Meru View Lodge 3 nights before I climbed Mount Meru and again 1 night before I tried my best on Kilimanjaro. The Meru View Lodge Team was very helpful in organizing the mountain climbs as well as my safari to Serengeti afterwards. The rooms are spotless clean and the 3 course dinner menue was excellent as well as the breakfast (incl. home made muesli). During the day you can relax at the pool but also daytrips can be organized. I felt like being at home. Thanks to all the staff for making our stay so pleasant!

We stayed there before and after our Kili ascent and had a wonderfull time. The staff is friendly and competent, and the couple who run the place go out of their way to cater for your wishes. They also organise daytrips to various places. And last but not least: the food is delicious. A real oasis in the wilderness of Africa.
