Great Hotel!
We had a wonderful stay! The hotel staff was friendly, courteous, and professional. It's in the perfect spot, just a few steps away from the Old Fort, the House of Wonders, Palace Museum, and Forodhani Gardens. Strong wifi signal and walking distance from the ferry.

Simple charm in center Stone Town
Maru Maru is a charming hotel in the center of Stone Town's bustle. The front door gives a great vantage point on the constant comings and goings. My room was pretty and clean and well-appointed. The staff was very gracious and helpful. Breakfast, both food and service, was mediocre at best and for this reason I avoided the restaurant.
