Stayed at this nice small hotel in November of 2020. I emailed them to reserve the room and the response was less than 24 hours. Excellent and friendly service at check in. They were not busy so I was given one of the larger rooms with a very nice balcony. Exceptionally clean. Very quiet. The Wifi in the room worked extremely well. I was a little surprised. Breakfast options are excellent. I will be staying here again next year. It was perfect. Thank you African Tulip.

We had the pleasure of staying at The African Tulip after our 5 day safari and the hotel was wonderful. Our room was very large and furnished perfectly for a family. We were on a camping safari so needless to say we had accumulated some dirty laundry. We asked if they would be able to do it and return to us before we left the next day and they had it back to us the same night! Everyone was so friendly, helpful and accomodating. The food was excellent and the pool area was very calm and refreshing. We wish we could have stayed longer. It was an excellent stay, I would highly recommend!

We stayed at this hotel at the start and the end of our safari. We were actually given the same room, both times, and lucky for us, we were upgraded to a huge suite -- we even had a nice balcony. The room itself was very clean, spotless. We ate lunch and breakfast in the restaurant. Everything we had seemed very fresh and was tasty and flavorful. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. They were always making sure that our stay was going well and being very accommodating. They were amazing with following all of the Covid rules. Lots of sanitizer available, all staff was wearing facemasks, etc. Great, comfortable stay, would definitely visit again.

My family and I stayed here upon arrival in Arusha for a couple of nights and then prior to flying out at the end of our safari with Roy Safaris in June 2017 (Our stay was not in June 2020). It was a clean, comfortable and nice place to stay with good food and very helpful staff. I would stay here again. It was very convenient as well.

My sister and I recently stayed at The African Tulip. Upon arriving we were greeted with a refreshing drink and cool cloth. Staff were very nice. We enjoyed the pool in the afternoon, with drinks and lunch. Our dinner was delicious. We found the room to be spotless. The hotel and grounds were also very well kept. All in all, we were very comfortable there and would highly recommend.
