Cannot express my love for this hotel enough, and the incredible staff. Particularly considering the location, you DEFINITELY will not get better!! The staff are just SO friendly and can't do enough for you. The hotel is beautiful, clean, and modern, but still traditionally African!! We were on a 'missionary' type trip, so coming back to this luxury hotel every...

We only had one night here at the beginning of our trip, but it was the perfect start! They have a nice lounge for drinks and the breakfast buffet was excellent! I particularly loved the outdoor area which was beautiful ans serene.

A day room before we boarded our evening flight out of KJO to AMS. Facility is very nice and rooms are quite comfortable. Buffet lunch was nice and service as good as any hotel. Only slight inconvenience was no elevator and we had a 3-floor walk-up.

We stayed at African Tulip for two nights prior to our safari trip. This hotel is about an hour away from Kilimanjaro airport. Very welcoming and well appointed hotel after a long flight from SFO. The 20+ rooms area well appointed and some have balcony looking out the neighborhood. It's an oasis in the middle of busy down town Arusha....
