It was amazing. Well located, with a beautiful pool, karaoke nights. To improve room services.

The central location is great. I liked the public area and besides the bar/restaurant/reception space, there are several places to hang out as well - near the pool area and the roof. Nice pool although it could be a bit cleaner. Good WIFI and breakfast. Complimentary use of bicycles, a plus. Attentive staff, if there are issues or something is needed, they addressed it right away. It would be nice to have a consistent TV reception and more international news and movie channels. I would definitely stay here again.

Better than average but not great!
The staff at Cafe Central really make the property. They extremely helpful and really seem to love their jobs and helping guest. I expect to be wowed by the property given the previous reviews but there were just too many things not in order for me to say the property is great. The old building has character but there are a few areas on the property that need some fine tuning. Especially, towards the back of the property. The swimming pool was also full of algae during our visit but we seemed to be the only ones bothered by, it. The rooms themselves were very clean and well stocked with clean towels and even a few toiletries

Great place to stay Stone Town, Mozambique Island
Cafe Central is right in the middle of Stone Town, which is where you want to be when you visit Mozambique Island. There are 3 good restaurants in Stone Town and all are within 50 metres or so if Cafe Central. The accommodation is comfortable and very clean, with AC and fan in every room, and mosquito nets with no holes! Kettle in the room, a refrigerator, a bottle of water every day, not just on arrival. Hot water too, not that you need it too hot. Service is very good and a filling breakfast is included, with fresh fruit and yogurt as well as toast egg and jam, and plunger coffee. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.
