Lovely stay in Stone Town
We loved this hotel! The historic architecture, convenience to ferry & night market, comfortable bed, helpful staff, balcony, and scrumptious breakfast. We would definitely stay again.

Fantastic hotel!
We stayed in the Tippu Tip room, and despite its name (named after a slave trader), we LOVED it. the room was clean, well-appointed, and had a great balcony overlooking the busy harbor. Air conditioning AND a fan AND mosquito netting were all appreciated. Breakfast was welcoming every morning. The staff were lovely. And our favorite, favorite, favorite thing about the hotel was the beautiful pool in the back courtyard. It offered the perfect respite after going out and exploring every day.

Fantastic stay right by the ocean.
The hotel was a bit difficult to find at first but only because there is currently construction happening in the front. Once you find it you realize you're perfect central to everything. When we arrived, we were upgraded to the nicest room in the hotel. The top level suite with a balcony overlooking the ocean. The air conditioning was AMAZING and the beds are like clouds. We were so pleased with the staff and their willingness to help us with anything. They made us feel like nothing was too much trouble. We look forward to booking again soon.

Can't wait to come back
Beautiful old Moorish hotel full of corridors leading to unexpected courtyards and fountains and a pool. The staff was friendly and helpful in arranging excursions. The breakfast buffet (included) was abundant and included made to order pancakes and omelets. Lunch and dinner were excellent - try the Mizingane sandwich, prawn salad or biriyani. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a small private balcony and turn down service to spread and spray the mosquito net and leave a handful of scented jasmine flowers on the dresser
