Very Good 8.0
It was a nice stay and in a nice part of Stone Town (we had stayed before in a not so nice part). Close to boutique shops and within walking distance from the water. Pleasant restaurant and rooms with an old charming feel. Nice staff. Only problem came on the last day when we were double-charged for the taxi ride to the airport (we realized that after we got home).

Small Boutique Hotel with excellent staff
We recently enjoyed 2 nights at the Beyt al Salaam Hotel in Stonetown. The hotel is centrally located, surrounded by green mature trees. The staff is friendly and we got a free room upgrade to a larger room with sea views. The room itself was spotless and included a mini fridge and AC. The included breakfast was simple but delicious. This hotel has a lot of character and you will enjoy the hospitality of Juma and his staff. We highly recommend this hotel to everyone traveling to Zanzibar.

Great place!
We stayed at this lovely boutique hotel where the staff were fantastic, especially Bianca and Rukia, who went out of their way to help us. The room was lovely, but it had a major problem with the electrics and a leak in the bathroom. They didn’t have any other rooms available at the hotel, so they moved us to the Doubletree next door. Despite the inconvenience, the staff were amazing and did everything they could to keep us happy, so thank you! Great location and good food too. Highly recommended!
