Africa House Hotel, Zanzibar Town
Stay somewhere else
The staff was nice, but this hotel is nasty. The rooms are old and in need of refurbishing. The shower is terribly small. I got sick from the really bad breakfast. On the roof deck, I was propositioned by a hooker. Stay elsewhere.

Great hotel and staff with perfect location
Great, historic property with a great bar/restaurant that overlooks the water that is very popular for sunset. You can walk to shopping, restaurants, bars, and everything in town. Right out the door you can go for a swim in the morning or evening which is convenient. Multiple staff members were very helpful in planning activities before we got into town and while we were there.
