My friend, her mother and I stayed at the guest house for 2 nights on our way back from Jambiani and found it to be a pleasant place to stay. The rooms were quite small for 3 people and the ensuite 'bathroom' had no door, it was just behind a curtain. I would have been happier not having the ensuite... More

Hi Richard K, Thank you for taking the time to review the Warere. I wish the person who made your reservation had taken the time to explain that it was two friends travelling with an older person as I would have certainly made sure you had the larger room on the lower floor with three separate beds. These rooms do... More

We have stayed at Warere twice now, in June 2013 for a few nights and in June 2014 for two nights. In 2013 we got a room with a balcony, and in 2014 we opted for the more basic economy room. The balcony room was very spacious with a lovely bathroom and of course the balcony. The economy room was... More

One of the best feelings of my life will forever be the cold wet cloth on my face that greeted us along with cold drinks when we arrived at Warere Townhouse. After the long hot grimy trip to get to Stone Town, it was truly bliss. Warere was quite good for the price, with clean rooms and good service. We... More

Hi CGreen_rugger, thank you for your detailed review of the Warere! We are glad you enjoyed our cool face clothes at reception, just what is needed after traipsing through the streets of Stone Town! We are also glad you enjoyed our free breakfast on the rooftop! Indeed, wifi internet at the Warere is a free service, but it is best... More

Warere Town House I spent 4 nights here & found it charming & pleasant. Being a female on my own, initially I was concerned about the 10 minute walk from Stone Town at night along the waterfront but I soon realized that was not a problem.

In addition to my review I just posted, Khatibu at front desk was so very nice and helpful! Thank you for the lovely stay. And there is also an adorable family of kittens who love in the garden. Which was a very sweet treat to see every day! 200 characters... We recommend this hotel!

Hi Samantha V, Asante sana for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the Warere. We offer a free pickup from the port so guests aren't hassled by touts upon arrival. This also shows guests the way to the hotel the first time around, as the alleys can be confusing. We have just changed all the showers,... More

We did enjoy this property. The price was reflective. I would recommend a little bit more for backpackers or single travelers. The room was really nice but with 3 beds. This totally makes sense for single people traveling together. We enjoyed a really fun balcony. I can only say the problem was the AC did drip on the seat. The... More

If you need a good clean place to stay for the night in Stone Town at a great price, this is your place. You will hear your neighbors from time-to-time and the bathroom is far from luxurious, but the staff is extremely friendly and helpful.
