We stayed at the African Tulip three nights - one before a safari and two nights afterward. We were so impressed with the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff. The hotel was quiet, peaceful, and yet nestled in the heart of Arusha. The rooms were spacious and filled with thoughtful amenities. The manager and reception staff made time to explain a map and give explicit walking directions to local craft markets, restaurants, etc, as well as call a good, clean taxi to take us to areas outside of walking distance. The restaurant staff and food quality was outstanding. The selection was diverse including both local foods, as well as Indian, American, Italian, etc. We often had wine by the pool, enjoying the flowers, and then moved into the dining room. In the evenings, which can be cool, the wait staff brought us a lovely charcoal ember stand to keep us warm. It was quite charming. The rooms were very clean and included cute window seat areas overlooking beautiful flowers. The setting was truly lovely. In addition, our flight didn't leave until 9pm. The hotel staff wanted us to be comfortable and let us stay in our room as late as we wanted without charging us for an extra night staff. The African Tulip is truly a lovely hotel and very well priced. We hope to stay there again.
