It is a pleasure to know that you had a wonderful experience with us. We are grateful for sharing your review and we warmly welcome you back.
I would highly recommend staying here if needing a hotel pre/post safari. We really enjoyed our first stay so much so that it would make it tough to even consider somewhere different on a return safari trip.
Upon arriving in Arusha from Zanzibar we stayed at The African Tulip for two nights. Our thoughts were to not be rushed, have a travel day from Zanzibar (although short travel of course) then a day to spend in Arusha a bit to see what it is like and then be in position to start our safari driving to Tarangire early the next morning.
I would totally stay at The African Tulip again. I felt all the staff were very friendly - from the front desk to the restaurant and even housekeeping we would pass in the hallways. The outdoor space is so lovely to sit in during the afternoon it's very peaceful/tranquil. I feel like it helped us transition into nature mode a bit to get ready for what was to follow in the coming days.
The rooms and common areas all felt very clean. The beds were very comfortable and I loved having the water jug dispenser in the room for cold water anytime we wanted, or if needing tea/coffee it also conveniently dispensed hot water.
We also used the hotel as a day room when we returned from safari given our flight landed in Arusha around 12:30pm and we were not departing Kilimanjaro until around 11:30pm that night. It was great to come back share our safari stories with the individuals that sent us off on our way for it all to begin.
I will also mention that it is very conveniently located next door to Roy Safaris office if you happen to be doing your safari with them :-)
Thank you for your kind gesture of sharing your African Tulip experience. We are happy to know that you appreciated our friendly staff and noted on the cleanliness aspect. it is also great to hear you enjoyed the water dispenser in your room. You are warmly welcomed anytime you are in Arusha.
We ended our safari here before leaving from Kilimanjaro Airport. This place was such a nice finish to our amazing time in Tanzania! It was in a quiet neighborhood. The staff was very friendly. The place was clean, the room spacious and comfortable, and the food was delicious. We had a full boarding plan, so we had dinner, breakfast and they made us a boxed lunch for the airport. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here next time in Arusha!
We appreciate you taking time to share your awesome review. It makes us happy to hear of your African Tulip experience and that you enjoyed the meals and the service of our friendly staff. We warmly welcome you back to the African Tulip next time you are in Arusha.
similar to other reviews, I was staying for 2 nights to rest from international travel before heading to the Serengeti. The staff were universally friendly and helpful. The room was bright with a big window overlooking the pool and grounds. I enjoyed spending the afternoon by the pool working through the good internet service. Definitely a good choice for my needs.
It is a pleasure to know that the African Tulip was a good choice for your needs. We appreciate you taking time to write your review and knowing that you were satisfied with our friendly and helpful staff as well as the good internet service. We look forward to welcoming you anytime you are in Arusha.
We stayed here right after arriving at Kilimanjaro airport from the US through Amsterdam. The staff were warm and welcoming, even though it was after 11 pm, and they kept the kitchen open for us to have a late dinner, which was above and beyond and very much appreciated. The room and grounds were lovely, the meals were terrific, as was the staff, and it was a restful and comfortable 2 night stay before embarking on a bush safari.
It is a pleasure knowing that you had a wonderful stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you next time you are in Arusha.
I stayed at the African Tulip for a few days before and after my 5 day safari and the level of service was consistent throughout. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The water dispenser was also much appreciated after an afternoon of walking through the markets of Arusha town. The staff was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stays.
One thing that could improve the overall guest experience, it would be having a bureau of exchange onsite to exchange USD for TSH. With the COVID protocols in place at the airport, it took us over 2 hours to leave at which point we completely forgot about getting local currency and it would've been nice to do so at the airport instead of having to go into town.
It is great to know of your experience with us especially the consistency on the level of service.
Regarding the bureau exchange, we do understand the convenience of being able to exchange forex at the hotel which we did before but then the Government introduced a new system and closed all bureaus except those at the banks.
We thank you for your recommendation.
