The African Tulip is a lovely little boutique hotel down the street from central Arusha. The location is good, quiet, but still within walking distance of the main part of town and near several restaurants. The hotel itself is clean and nicely appointed and the staff are very good. They genuinely care about their guests' well-being. The food is fine, nothing outstanding, but certainly not bad. They even provided breakfast to go when we had to check-out of the hotel before breakfast on our last day. The managers and supervisors consistently checked in with us to make sure everything was good. The bathroom was huge and clean, and included both tub and shower. The hotel thoughtfully placed my colleague and I in a suite arrangement where we could use private common space for work. This was fine for us, but I can see where some colleagues may not want to be that close. We had separate doors with locks though.
As a business hotel, the wifi is good, but the outlets were not very accessible and were not international with the multi-plug adapter. The desk is small and the tv is right above it, which was kind of distracting. This is somewhat on me for not thoroughly checking, but I was disappointed to find out the hotel does not have a gym. It's not like they claimed one though, so I should have been more diligent. Still, it would've been nice if they had even just a small gym with a couple treadmills.
