Hidden in the alleys but very close to the ferry. It would be a good idea to have a torch on you after dark. With a bit of luck you are able to find the place yourself, just turn left after the big tree. Traditional decorations and the wooden carved bed reminds you of the stories from Thousand and One...

The position of the Pyramid is in the old part of Stone Town, not so far from the port (5 min walking) and from other points of interest. Average clean. Tiny bathroom and not so clean. Basic breakfast.

This is a really atmospheric and picturesque place with really cool decor. It's down a maze of alleys and you properly feel like you are in Stone Town. Good access for all the amenities. Nice room, good nets, very clean. The staff were very helpful and they can sort out your tours and things. Pretty good value, though it can... More

In Stone town you have to careful when you chose your hotel since it is difficult to find most of them. (you'll need a pick-up or someone to show you. the city is mostly like a medina with small streets and shops.) If you won't be staying in a hotel on the main streets -which are expensive accordingly- this hotel... More

Charming traditional place, with lovely top-roof place to rest and eat. Reception persons are very kind and helpful, internet works properly. The rooms are comfortable with muslim-traditional ornaments and decoration. Very stylish. Hotel is well located (near ferry harbor) Strongly recommend.

We just turned up without a booking and got a lovely twin room for $40 a night.We were offered a choice of two rooms and they seem to be different sizes so make sure you check the rooms before committing.

Great value for money. Very nice and clean rooms, quiet location but very near everything. We walked to everything from here. We've stayed here twice because it was so perfect for what you want in stone town. Now, it's not on the water because really if you really want Zanzibar beach experience then stone town is not the place to... More

Stayed here for four nights with my friend in a double room, upon first walking into the hotel, the lovely receptionist greeted us, and was really nice and helpful, the bellboys help bring your bags up to your room too, and they always smile and are really hearty when greeting you. The hotel itself is really nice too, with steep... More
