We stayed the night we arrived in Arusha prior starting our safari. The personnel is really friendly and professional. It is a lovely quiet place to decompress in the middle of Arusha. The food was good and the buffet was diversified. The accommodation was large, clean and very nice. Hotel definitely to recommend for your stay in Arusha.

We stayed here a night before our safari and one night after. We found this hotel very charming, comfortable, and nicely located, on a quiet street. Our first room had a balcony, the second did not. Both rooms were large and had a water filter to use. The staff is extremely friendly and remembered us when we checked in again. Dinners outside by the pool had nice ambiance!

The staff at the African Tulip were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location - within walking distance of downtown Arusha as well as some fun basket shopping around the corner. The rooms are spacious and have many thoughtful amenities. I look forward to staying here again on my next trip to Arusha.

Stayed a night prior to safari and two nights afterwards. Very impressed with all the staff, always smiling and being of assistance. The food was excellent and a very good spread at breakfast and dinner buffets. We also had lunch on our last day. The cocktails, beers and wine were fabulous and very reasonably priced. The family suite of 21 & 22 suited us perfectly with our two adult sons. A big thankyou to the Team at African Tulip.

Beautiful hotel and exceptional service. The rooms are tastefully decorated, spacious and clean. The food was delicious. The swimming pool is a welcome retreat from the hot sun. The staff are so nice, helpful and welcoming. The decor was beautiful and really made you feel like you have arrived in Tanzania.

African Tulip was perfect for my family. We stayed there both before and after our safari to Tarangire, Ngorongoro, and Serengeti. Our family had connecting rooms 21 & 22. Perfect setup for our family of two adults and two kids. Customer service was outstanding. Staff that impressed were Mary and Happy in the restaurant, Joyce with laundry service, Shija porter/luggage, Dennis hotel store, and manager Deepak. The staff remembered our names, were professional, efficient, extremely friendly and communicated well. African Tulip is clean, and we felt safe. It was winter, so we didn’t use the pool. Recommend African Tulip 100%

We stayed here the night we arrived in Arusha and then for an extra get acclimated day prior to our safari and then again the night prior to our journey home. It is a lovely quiet place to decompress. We had massages prior to starting our safari and they were among the best we've ever had! The food was okay and the menu was somewhat limited. The staff was friendly and the accommodations were very nice. The rooms were quite large, even by U.S. standards! Definitely would stay there again!

Watch out for their address because they have changed the location few months ago. It's a great hotel with friendly staff and good food. Good location before catching a flight. Close of the airport and they have a shuttle
