Great Experience
You can't beat it for the price you get. Room is 2 minute walk to the beach. Staff is friendly with a free delicious breakfast. Moody, the owner, is great and can connect you with people for any activity you want to do. Only downside is no air conditioning but if you want ultimate comfort like that I suggest Miami, not Zanzibar. Wifi also worked well.

Luogo molto accogliente
Luogo accogliente con servizio di ottimo livello. Atmosfera familiare e personale sempre molto disponibile. Posizione comoda, a pochi passi dalla piazza principale del paese e a 300 metri dal mare. Raffaele, Irene e Diego

Supert sted
Nungwi House er et svært godt lavprishotell. Rommene er rene, sengetøyet er laget av bomull (som ikke er en selvfølge på Zanzibar) og toalettet har håndusj som er supert da toalettpapiret er som regel er av dårlig kvalitet. Sengene er gode og frokosten er i superklasse som holder i mange timer. Strømmen går litt nå og da, som er vanlig i Nungwi, men hotellet har strømaggregat om strømbruddet varer lenge.

Ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo
Non direttamente sul mare (raggiungibile comunque a piedi in meno di 5 minuti), in posizione centrale da cui è possibile raggiungere tutto in poco tempo. Camere pulite e spaziose. Proprietari molto più che disponibilissimi e gentilissimi: fantastici. Colazione abbondante inclusa. Caffè e tè a disposizione gratis 24 ore su 24. Non riusciamo davvero a trovare qualcosa che non ci abbia soddisfatto appieno. Lo consigliamo senza esitazioni.
