The hotel is just five minutes walk from the ferry and about 20 minutes from the Airport, location is perfect in front of the hotel Is promenade walk to the forodhani park, in the night it’s lively with plenty of local food stalls. Staff are amazing especially Zubeda and Haji they were brilliant and make my stay very enjoyable with their knowledge of the city.behind the hotel is stone town where you can walk through narrows roads ,overall I enjoy my stay at Mizingani and I will definitely stay there again. Another thing is the breakfast is amazing plenty of food and a lot of varieties includes fresh fruits and juice. Abdirahman

6/10 Good

Due to a change in my flight which occurred during transit, I was unable to check in at the hotel. After contacting Expedia to get some results....it was a frustrating and devaluing experience. The phone number listed for the hotel was an unavailable number. The hotel (per Expedia) insisted that my room was no longer available. I had booked and paid in advance for 8 days. I was dumbfounded when I was told that there were no available rooms. What happened to the room i had paid for? I would be checking in a day later due to flight changes (the airline did that, not me) I felt like I was being robbed. I agreed reluctantly to cancel the reservation (Expedia's solution) and find other accommodations. I was in transit at the time (in Ethiopia). After arriving in Stone Town I went to the hotel and spoke personally with the GM who insisted that my room was still available and that I could check in. This was after I had written a scathing review of my experience. My friends who did stay there had mixed feelings. Some thought it was ok, but one of our companions checked out day 2 and found another hotel. My experience was very bad...poor communication...incorrect phone number on website...unsatisfactory in my opinion. The plus is that it is located on the Seafront...

We enjoyed our stay there. Nice location, close to all the restaurants and shopping. Five minute walk from Stone Town. Room was spacious, clean and the staff was very friendly.

4/10 Fair

Don’t trust the rating. Not a 9 but a 6 max!!
I had paid for the luxe double room. For me a working safe is very important because of the cash in my phones. The safe didn’t work. Hadn’t worked apparently in a long time because the batteries were totally corroded. They try to get batteries from another room. They didn’t work. I asked for a room with a working safe. I got another room with a working safe but it was definitely a standard room. Small, very small balcony, and the bathroom both of the freaking joke. You couldn’t even get to the toilet you had to step over the toilet to sit on the toilet. The breakfast offerings were OK if you came early enough. If you came during the last hour most of the stuff was gone. There are a lotSmall local all the style hotels around in the neighborhood for $20-$30 less. The one thing this hotel has it going is its location. It is the closest place that you can stay when you get off the ferry. But I do not recommend staying there. There are other options that are much much better and actually are a lot cheaper.
What were they thinking? Totally ridiculous!!

8/10 Very good

Quaint and historic
The building itself is magnificent and it really feels like you're in history. The staff are incredible - so friendly and helpful. I told them it was my husband's birthday and they sent up a cake to the room <3 The room itself was cute and traditional with a lovely little balcony. The only issue was the bathroom layout - not very easy to fit into and the shower had no screen so you couldn't help make a mess. This may have only been our room though - bigger rooms were probably better. Breakfast was also ok - being vegetarian it didnt have a great selection for me but it was fine. The location is great - I mean, Stonetown is not big but this is an ideal location as it is right next to ferry terminal.
