Good Place to Stay
Location was excellent in Stone Town. It was safe, friendly and clean. Service and manager were phenomenal. Not one piece of comfortable furniture, bed was adequate. Room had good air conditioner but TV was fuzzy. Breakfast was average, fruit was good.

The best last night stay in Zanzibar!
Great experience all round! Not sure why the stars aren’t higher as it was such a nice stay. The staff were welcoming, friendly and really went above and beyond for myself and partner.

A great place to stay, especially for a scuba diver. A 2 minute walk to the dive shop, preceded by a nuce complimentary breakfast! My room was cleaned spotless every day, fresh towels and sheets every day. All amenities such as AC,TV,pool,WiFi, were fully operational. Staff were all friendly and helpful. I'll definitely be staying here again!

If your not looking to pay for a 5-star hotel, I would highly HIGHLY recommend this hotel. The staff was super helpful and had great communication throughout the hotel. Ebrahim was the absolute best - he was able to exchange all of our USD to smaller denominations of USD or exchange directly to Tanzanian Schilling and booked us a taxi that was half the cost of everything else we were finding. The hotel is also in a great location behind the old fort / 12 minute walk from the ferry with a ton of great dining options (would recommend Masa and the beach house). Overall the place was very clean and the interior is absolutely gorgeous!
