We had a deluxe triple room. It appeared we were the only guests. Low point was that we have agreed one price on the phone, but when we have arrived they told us this was a mistake by the employee who took our reservation and asked for 10 USD more. Still, it was overall a pretty nice stay. Very friendly staff. Pretty clean. Surrounded by a lovely garden. Some things didn’t work in the room (you can’t really close the bathroom door). Place is OK for a transit stay of 1-2 nights, on a way to a safari or something like that.

Room Tip: Agree the reservation in writing, not on the phone. We did it last minute, so we made this mistake.

This hotel was such a delight and surprise! It is new and located in a safe and gorgeous neighborhood that is such an escape from the nearby bustle of the city center. The pool is so beautiful and you can hear and see many tropical birds in the well maintained garden as well as the occasional monkey swinging in the trees.

The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the staff make the experience very cheerful. I love this boutique hotel and can't wait to come back again!

Not a well managed property. They had power failure and frequent interruptions- with the generator also not really working non-stop. In addition, their coffee quality is not all that great. Most important, the employees do not seem to be trained for hospitality and were not easy to deal with- something that I did not find in any other hotel or camp site that we stayed in Tanzania. I do not think that they have too much focus on customer and experience.

My friends and I had a great experience at Tulia Hotel and Spa. The hospitality, food and rooms were amazing. The fact that they would actually accommodate most of our many demands sold this gem as the place to stay in Arusha, Tz.

Clean, quiet, and comfortable with a very good restaurant. Feels much more like an old house with character than a standard hotel. Spacious room with a large bed but a somewhat small bathroom. Garden is beautifully maintained. Wifi was good

Great location close to town but quiet road. James was excellent with a warm welcome and always there if we had a question.
Rooms are clean and spacious. The rest of the team were also very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was good. Went out for dinner as close to many great restaurants .

Definitely recommend and will return.

Beautiful lodge, also suitable for a longer work stay with special conditions, nice team, breakfast and food good. Only a few power and internet outages are an important advantage. Pool and garden are also an important advantage.

The hotel is located in a quiet area on the outskirts of Arusha. Not on the main road, so quiet. Very beautiful tropical garden. We were not able to use the swimming pool because it was cold (normal at this time). The triple or quadruple room is comfortable. Average breakfast. We had two meals, one good and one bad. But I recommend this establishment when you arrive or leave from a safari.
