Jafferji House - awesome!
We had an amazing stay at Jafferji House. The staff was very helpful. We had the Jafferji room which was off the charts with charm. Highly recommend it. Loved the outdoor area, so comfortable.

A bit uncomfortable
Don't expect much in terms of luxury or let the design deceive.

Amazing spacious room in the middle of stone town.
Amazing spacious room. We stayed in the spice room. Great location. The AC kept the room nice and cold, super nice, specially when coming back from a Stone Town walk about. Wifi though was extremely slow, and that's when it was working. Also just one channel was working properly on the TV. Overall loved our stay here! Would definitely come back if Wifi was faster.
