We were pleasantly welcomed at the African tulip hotel after landing in Tanzania. We were greeted with fresh juice and kind staff. The room was very clean and spacious with a shower and tub. The food was delicious and buffet style. There was lots of choices and you definitely did not go anywhere hungry. Drinks were fairly priced with lots to choose from, highly recommend the pina colada. The pool area was a nice touch for a hot day. Overall the service was great and I would recommend a stay here if you are traveling in/around Arusha.

The first hotel on our safari journey and it was perfect! Super clean, the staff are amazing!! The manager, Deepanshu was very kind and cared about your stay and making sure everything was good. Food was delicious, lots to choose from, and if anyone’s a picky eater they had plainer options too. We relaxed around the pool, it was so peaceful watching the little birds fly in and out of the trees. The place felt homely and welcoming, would recommend.

Very nice and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food was good. Manager was also very nice to talk to. I would certainly request to stay her the night before and after any safari I do again out of Arusha.

We had a one night stay here while transiting through Arusha. We got the two room interconnected suite for a family of four. The room had a spacious living room as well. The decor inside the hotel with all the animals was very unique. The restaurant had a good selection of Indian food which was very helpful, and a nice breakfast as well. Would recommend it to people visiting Arusha.

We stayed at the Tulip before departing for our Safari, and the hotel was wonderful. The staff was excellent and looked after us. I've stayed in many places in Arusha, and highly recommend the African Tulip. The food was great, the grounds were gorgeous, the rooms were clean, staff was professional and courteous. 10/10 recommend.

This was our 1st stop Tanzania. We arrived at the airport, expecting our tour director to met up; we found that our date of arrival unexpectedly was planned for the following day, so we made arrangements to transported to The Tulip. When we arrived we found that we didn’t have arrangement to stay the 1st night. The very good new is the manner in which the staff contacted our tour manager and straighten out the error and provided refreshments while the problem was being handled. The hotel (located in the down town Arusha area) proved to be Great experience with great room, food , & assistance.
