We loved staying here! The rooms were comfortable and the staff was top notch. We had lovely meals with great service. Our first night we arrived late and they stayed to serve us dinner. They really went above and beyond to deliver wonderful service! I highly recommend this hotel!

Stayed at this property in Arusha after our safari trip organized by Takims Holidays. Had a very pleasant stay with excellent service, superior rooms, and a very clean environment. Additionally the location is also very good as centrally located. The GM Mr Sharma and his team were extremely welcoming and courteous, highly recommend this hotel.

The staff at the African Tulip hotel are very friendly and the service is great. The suite we occupied for the night was very comfortable. Unfortunately as we had a short stay we could not enjoy all the amenities the hotel offers. It is helpful and reassuring to know that the rooms are not occupied back to back.

We stayed at the African Tulip on arriving in Tanzania (the day before we went on safari) and again on our last day (after finished climbing Kilimanjaro). Both visits were wonderful and we felt completely relaxed and rested after our stay. The rooms were large and very comfortable and on our last few days of trekking Kili we were dreaming of being back at the Tulip and soaking in a hot bath. All the staff were super friendly and attentive and made us feel very welcome during our stay. We would definitely recommend staying when you visit Tanzania.
