We stayed there in October, on our way back from a Safari. Since we had missed our flight and didn't manage to stay there before the Safari, they upgraded us to a better room.
Everybody was more than polite and welcoming. The room was really nice and clean, and the service beyond our expectations, impeccable!

Stayed as part of an aircrew, arriving in Kilimanjaro after a long night. A 40 minute minibus ride took us to this welcoming hotel in Arusha. Despite arriving late the manager had kept the breakfast laid out for the 12 of us, a welcome thought. The room was spacious, spotless and nicely decorated as the photos on here will show. Not overdone like some African hotels, but with a nice balance of comfort, practicality and a big bed.

Dinner in the evening was excellent, as was the service from the friendly, attentive waiting staff. The rest of the hotel looked equally inviting and I am just sorry that we did not have more time to spend there.

Overall, a really pleasant stay with a warm welcome.

We stayed at African Tulip the night before starting a safari, and stayed at a different hotel on our last night in Arusha to save some $ as it was a bit cheaper. We really wished we had stayed at the African Tulip again, it is worth the extra $. I can't say enough good things about the beautiful hotel, great food, and incredibly helpful and friendly staff. We had a lost luggage situation with the airline and the hotel staff was so wonderful in helping making phone calls to track it down. I would definitely stay here again should I be lucky enough to go back to Arusha someday!

We stayed at the African Tulip for two nights but would have liked to have stayed for longer. It had character, the staff were friendly and welcoming (and helped us practise our Swahili), and our rooms were lovely and spacious. The food was good and we enjoyed our pre-dinner drinks both at the bar by the swimming pool, and the inside bar. We found the hotel a very pleasant oasis.
