Paradise! Take me back!
Zanzibar House is a paradise. The hotel is beautiful and immaculately clean. From arrival to departure the owners and their staff are available at all times. The pool and beach area feel like your own little slice of heaven. The evening meals are a real treat as well. They are served Italian style (4 courses) and are homemade from scratch. Its like dining in Rome with a beautiful beach backdrop. The only thing you should be aware of is that this place is very remote from other hotels and restaurants. It was perfect for us because we wanted rest and relaxation. If you want a party, look somewhere else.

My remarks and observations in the overall, hotel service and condition categories as well room comfort and cleanliness are based on a hard working couple's way of training and creating jobs for young people in hotel work and service(bed prep and floor cleaning as well as towel service and for a 5 star cooking presentation and quality in the evening dinner experience).The room comfort included mosquito nets in each room and bed prepared and pulled back everyday...cleanliness and comfort and neiborhood(included sweeping all the floor spaces everyday whether it was sweeping up the white small grains of sand or redoing clean artistic bed covering beauty.

Beautiful and relaxing
I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights for a solo getaway. It's a beautiful place! Run by a lovely Italian couple. Service and room were great. Airport shuttle super convenient (as this place is about an hr away from the airport). Included breakfast and dinner were delicious! The ocean can have seaweed, I'm guessing depends on the time of the year, as most beaches, but it was still very nice. Would recommend this hotel to anyone, and stay here again.

A Little Slice of Paradise
After a mediocre stay in Stone Town, we were ecstatic to find this hidden slice of paradise on the east side of the island. As you drive up, the place looks a bit suspect but don't be fooled. Beyond the gate there is a magnificent oasis waiting for you. With only 7 guest rooms, the place is cozy and quiet. There is a nice pool, fantastic area enjoy the sun, and easy access to a relatively private beach with the softest powder white sand. The staff was attentive and quick to provide service. They even provided an ice bucket to keep my beer cold. The meals were exceptional, especially the four-course dinners. I would most certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a place to just relax and enjoy paradise. Not to mention the 6:30AM sunrises are phenomenal and not too early.

Perfect Zanzibar getaway
If you're looking for a small, intimate oceanside hotel in Zanzibar, this is the place to go! The owner Maxi has done an excellent job in creating a quaint, relaxing atmosphere on the beach. He is also very helpful in helping you set up day excursions, like a great day snorkeling. He was extremely helpful in setting up our flight back to Dar at the last minute! The hotel staff is friendly, helpful and the hotel has multiple amenities at the guests' disposal. The food is a great: breakfast, multiple snacks during the day, and four-course dinner at night are all delicious. We were very impressed with the service and meals provided for the price. We were extremely happy with this hotel and would recommend it to anyone.
