10/10 Exceptional

The staff was friendly and accommodating. Rooms were spacious, clean and culturally intriguing. Rooftop breakfasts were very nice. Located in the heart of Stone Town, the hotel was well situated for walking tours of historic sites, shopping, and access to the scenic harbor. Airport shuttles and island tours were set up nicely through the front desk.

A very good mid-range hotel
We were only there for 2 nights, but were well looked after by the staff. It is very central, but NOT where it is shown on's website. please use Google to see where it really is. This was clearly pointed out by me to, but their call centre agent was incapable of resolving this. Our room was totally acceptable for a mid-range hotel. Breakfast is simple and is served in a roof-top restaurant. it's nothing spectacular, but we'd definitely stay again.

Nice basic hotel close to the ferry port
We were given cold fresh juice when we arrived and staff were really helpful when we were checking in, and with any questions we had during our stay. Rooms were comfortable with ac, fridge, bottled water, tea and coffee, tv, mosquito nets. We had lunch in the rooftop restaurant, which was all good (cheeseburger, puzza, calamari). Breakfast was also good, and they allowed us to check out late and helped carry our bags to the ferry. Would definitely recommend staying here.
