Great spot!
I would highly recommend a stay here. Great location for discovering Stonetown. Noreen is a gem and everyone working at the Coffee House is top notch. Rooms are clean and perfect for whatever you need. The roof top allows amazing views and a huge breakfast is included.

Charming and unique
Hospitality is lovely and unique the breakfast upstairs just gorgeous, but to get back to it at night even with gps can be extremly challenging on a labyrinth of tiny narrow streets ( no cars possibilities). Coffee is delicious!

Miss it already
Such a wonderful hotel. Friendly, clean, and accommodating and welcoming! Very much recommend doing the tours they organize (Amo Tours) as the tour guides are wonderful (we love Salma and Osman!) Would also recommend the pancakes and saving the banana in the fruit platter to add to the dish ;-) many thanks to Noreen and the rest of the great staff. Stone Town is the nicest place... we have fallen in love with this island and it’s people.

The coffee house is in the perfect location within Stonetown. Easy to find once you venture out into the winding maze-like streets of Stonetown. The staff is over the top with helpfulness and.service.

4/10 Fair

An interesting building within Stonetown. A fascinating view from the roof top floor with excellent coffee and food. This place is NOT for the disabled or those who cannot handle major stairways. Some of the upper rooms are beautiful however those on the lower floor should not even be sold for stay due to the strange and difficult layout that can be hazardous especially at night. This rooms have horrid views and unforgiving noises coming from adjacent builds just feet away. The room we stayed in had a nasty concrete stairs and sloped walkway leading to the toilet and shower about 30 feet away. The stairs to the bathroom are steep and hazardous with the bottom step looking like part of the floor. My girlfriend whom is young and athletic took a fall down these stairs at 3am which resulted in injury. I had contacted the manager Noreen earlier in the day asking for another room primarily because of the stairs and bathroom location and was told that no others were available- even though Expedia showed several including suites available. I even offered to pay more than the $126 I had paid. During the night you could hear one if not two people vomiting from the building adjacent to the bathroom and walkway. During most of the day the generator next to the room ran continuously throughout the day. I was furious after my girlfriends fall and horrid stay and immediately left the hotel in the early AM skipping the free coffee and breakfast.

10/10 Exceptional

Very good place to stay in the centre of Stone Town. Breakfast, the coffee and the terrace were the highlight along with great rooms. We did stay in a room with a private separate bathroom in the hallway which was fine for a night but next time I would pay for an ensuite room. Would definitely stay here again.
