Value for money. Nice little place to stay, a bit hard to find, but when you have arranged airport pick up with the hotel, it's simple. Staff extremely helpfull 👍 Breakfast was sufficient, you could get what you asked for.Close to everything in Stonetown. No luxoury, but would stay again for sure.

We stayed here for 1 night in a double en suite room. It is incredible what they have done with their limited space. Our room was small but lovely and super comfortable. We had our complimentary breakfast on the terrace which was excellent (way above average). They were professional and very helpful. It was well located for walking around Stone... More

The hotel has a nice zanzibari feel to it from the decor to the four poster bed. the bed takes up most of the space in the room. Rooms however are clean, fresh towels provided and the bathroom is clean too with hot shower. The wi fi is pretty good and i could access it in my room. breakfast served... More

Very nice guest house. Rooms were spacious and clean. Staff very helpful and friendly. Within walking distance of the harbor (1 min) and close to Stone Town (10-15 min walking). Nice terrace for breakfast and chill out. Definitively worthy for the money paid.

We stayed at Warere Town House for 2 nights so we could explore and enjoy Stone Town! It is located in a nice, quiet spot about 3 minutes walk to the ferry terminal. It took us 10 minutes to stroll down to Forodhani Gardens for the delicious night food market and only another 5 to make it to the hustle... More

The hotel was so nice that I had to come back! Friendly staff, very clean, well managed and extremely pleasent atmosphere. Breakfast is AMAZING!! They also serve dinner on a request, delicious! On the rooftop there is an honour bar, which is very nice for the lazy evenings. Would totally recommend this nice small budget hotel for everyone.

Located very close to the ferry terminal and about a 10 minute walk to the heart of stone town (old fort). We stayed there for 2 nights (the bigger room for USD 75) was really nice and the small one for 55 USD was also nice and a great price/value. We absolutely loved the breakfast on the rooftop bar!

Friendly staff, breakfast, honor bar was nice. Help yourself to a beer, water, or soda and write it in the book. A nice view to sit and enjoy a drink at the end of the day. Good location. An easy walk to the ferry, numerous restaurants and Stone Town. Staff is helpful in setting up tours. Beds were a little... More

4 of us stayed here in two balcony rooms for one night following two weeks on mainland and ahead of a week at a beach resort. We arranged to be collected at the airport by their taxi service - which I would highly recommend for ease, comfort, congeniality as well as price. Only 20 minutes from the airport we were... More
