Our room was spacious and had a nice window seat. Lots of room to spread out our stuff as we were trying to pack and re-pack for safari and return home after an extended vacation. Hotel staff were all very helpful, whether at the front desk or at the bar or in the restaurant. Very convenient location as our group went shopping at nearby plazas and the Arusha Cultural Arts centre for tanzanite jewelry and other gifts several times. Outdoor pool was a bit chilly for a swim in May, but had nice and comfortable chaise lounges surrounding the pool to relax in. Generally very clean and comfortable.

This was our third stay at The Tulip on our way to a 2 week long safari. We love the privately owned atmosphere of this boutique hotel. The staff is amazing throughout, the rooms very comfortable and the food delicious and abundant.

Great hotel to stay in Arusha. Clean and comfortable rooms, with very friendly staff. It also has a good bar and dining area to unwind after long days in the surrounding areas. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed one night before starting our safari tour. Our room (and the bathroom) was large and spacious and staff was excellent. The chef and the F&B manager went out of their way to make us feel like home! We thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality and food. Thank you very much!

Nicely decorated hotel with a good restaurant, nice bar and swimming pool in the garden. Great to escape the hustle and bustle of Arusha. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There was only one small problem with the shower but that is not uncommon in Tanzania...but all other things considered, nothing but praise!

We stayed at The African Tulip the night before our Safari began. It was the perfect way to start an amazing holiday. Having travelled some 20 hours to get to Tanzania, it was fantastic to be greeted by smiling faces and a beautifully put together hotel. Thank you!

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.
