For almost 100 years Meikles has been acclaimed as Zimbabwe’s premier luxury five-star hotel. It is situated in the heart of the capital city Harare. When you step into the elegant foyer at Meikles, you will know you have made the right choice. The smartly-turned out, professional and warmly welcoming staff, the smiles and efficiency, the meticulous attention to detail, the furnishings and ambience, the grand piano being quietly played to guests relaxing over coffee and cakes, tells you why Meikles continues to win the coveted title of Best City Hotel in Zimbabwe. With two luxurious multi-storey wings, offset to give the north-facing rooms of both wings breath-taking panoramic views of Africa Unity Square, Meikles is a favourite amongst business and leisure travellers to Harare. Interconnecting rooms are available in the South Wing with inter-leading doors to create family suites. There are twelve floors of non-smoking rooms as well as rooms for guests with special physical needs. From the 306 rooms, there is something to appeal to every kind of guest.

The following guests had this to say following their recent stay at Meikles Hotel :- Nkosinathi Z from Leeds, United Kingdom The hotel is excellent and probably the best the country can offer to the visiting tourist and business people, I had a room facing the park which had the best view of the city.
Danielle L from San Mateo, California The care and service I received was finer than any 5 star hotels I've ever visited. The wonderful guest service manager and his staff treated me like a queen, but what I noticed is that every guest felt their kindness too.
Howard from Kampla, UgandaThe rooms are nice and kept very clean and it wasn't a problem that I wasn't in the newly refurbished wing. Beds are very comfy and the hotel staff are very welcoming.
Trent B from Johannesburg, South Africa My room was perfectly fine and I cannot find fault. The restaurant breakfast and lunch was reasonable in quality and quantity.
