We spent one night in this hotel and it was lovely. The rooms are nice and spacious. The view from our room was great. After a long flight, this place was a perfect stop for a night. The restaurant had great dining options including a few vegetarian options which was a relief for me. The breakfast was nice and wholesome. The hospitality and service was excellent. Hearing my sniffles and that I was tired, the person attending to us at dinner, brought some ginger, lemon and honey tea to help me have some good sleep. This kind gesture helped me survive the next 7 days of safaris.

My stay at The African Tulip was wonderful. I look forward to another visit. My room was spacious, clean and nicely furnished with natural light. The room had coffees, teas. The bathroom was great with lots of toiletries. I had lunch, dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and all meals were delicious. I made some purchases at the hotel gift shop. Most importantly, each staff person made me feel welcome and valued. They helped me practice my limited Swahili with patience and smiles. The public rooms were comfortable. The landscaping and pool were lovely. I highly recommend The African Tulip when you need a place to stay or a meal in Arusha.

Visited the hotel for dinner. Ordered a steak and I loved it. It was nicely cooked. Met FNB manager, and he checked on food and service. I liked the ambience of the restaurant. I will visit again.
