    Perfect, hope to return

    Exceptional hotel with very personal service. The room was beautiful, clean, well appointed with attention to detail. I loved the locally handmade soaps and towels! The rooftop restaurant was amazing!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Emerson on Hurumzi. The rooms are fun and lavishly decorated, which added a unique and memorable component to the stay. The hotel also has excellent dining options such as a traditional tea-ceremony at the rooftop teahouse, and sunset dinner and cocktails at the rooftop restaurant. We would recommend Emerson on Hurumzi to anyone visiting Stone Town, and would happily stay there again!

    Séjourner à l'Emerson est un véritable voyage dans le temps. L'hôtel est authentique et tout est choisi avec beaucoup de soin. C'est vraiment une expérience à vivre : la chambre entourée de fenêtre, la baignoire spacieuse, le lit à baldaquin ... Le petit déjeuner est excellent, tous les espaces de vie commune de l'hôtel sont très agréables. Le staff est disponible et professionnel, il saura vous guider sur votre séjour à stone town. Nous avons également diner sur le rooftop. C'est une expérience à ne pas manquer, le lieu est exceptionnel, des musiciens animaient le diner, j'y retournerai sans hésiter. Peut-être prévoir des bouchons d'oreille pour dormir.

    Posto fantastico!

    Una delle migliori scelte se soggiornate a stone town! Caratteristico, particolare, non scontato! Camere enormi e ben curate, personale gradevole e disponibile, terrazza panoramica swahili style bellissima! Unica nota negativa proprio la cena sulla terrazza che se rapportata al pezzo ci è sembrata non all’altezza, comunque vale la pena solo per L atmosfera e c’è da dire che noi non amiamo particolarmente la cucina locale.
