The Bed and the view was awesome. Very clean, room aesthetics were fantastic. Excellent service by all staff including restaurant staff. Personal attention given to us all the time. Very close to several other amenities. Shopping was fun. Chef came to talk to us to ensure our spicy palatels were taking care of as requested!! Great Menu and options with lots of Fruits and veggies.

African Tulip Hotel has a feel of a heritage hotel. Our family room was huge and so comfortable. The room was well-equipped with water, mini-bar, coffee/ tea. I walked the compound of the hotel and it gave me the feeling that every detail is well-thought through. And has the homey feel as well, largely due to the "warmth" the entire place made me feel.

Top-drawer accommodations and wonderful staff. The building and setting are beautiful, and all of the people who work there and welcoming and highly competent. We spent our first night in Africa at the Tulip and returned there after a safari, and the hotel stored our extra luggage for an extended trip afterward. Smooth process and delightful memories.

Agent booked us into this hotel before our safari. We were checked into Room #19. Yes, you will have to climb 2 flights but it’s worth it. Ample room around the king bed, sitting area, bay window and a super large bathroom with a tub and a standing shower. We left complementing the front desk how much we loved the place & our room. They remembered, on our post safari rest night a week later; they booked us back in the same room. Staff are eager to deliver all reasonable asks. B’fast was included and was pleasantly surprised with the offerings. If you love a fresh Latte, just ask for one. Awesome! They have an awesome mock Baobab tree as their deco that you walk through — to the self serve B’fast area. Lovely ambiance with natural light given the wall of windows n the dinning area.

An excellent lodge in Arusha. Accommodations were quite upscale and included A/C in the guest rooms. Very pretty. Pleasant bird sounds greet your morning. Very good buffet breakfast and for dinner, order from the menu, with great service. WiFi provided. Enjoyed this first-night-in-Tanzania stay.

This hotel is small and very well managed. Very good security. The kids loved the pool and the delicious drinks and snack to be had while relaxing by the pool. Food is very good, we enjoyed some delicious curries. The beds in the rooms were enormous! Very clean rooms, great service, thank you!

Great place to stay in Arusha. The hotel is excellent location, the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, rooms were quiet and comfortable. Would definitely stay here. The pool is great although they could use some additional lounge chairs. Food is delicious and breakfast buffets plentiful.

Stunning stay. Amazing service. Clean and quiet. Food was great. The pool was the perfect relief after a hot car ride. The F and B manager is super helpful and kind. Wine was lovely - dinner buffet was delicious. And everything was so inexpensive! It’s just gorgeous. Highly recommend!

Great food, rooms and amazing workers. Honestly wasn’t sure what to expect for a hotel over here but it blew those expectations out of the water. The food options went way above and beyond any expectations and everything was fairly priced
