Great small hotel, near the ferry. The staff is wonderful, rooms are clean and the breakfast is delicious! Staff can arrange tours in the reception and give good restaurant advises. Felt like home while staying there. Highly recommended!

Bit hard to find, but a little gem once there. Rooms were comfortable, air con good, and pretty and peaceful balcony. The rooftop restaurant/ bar was great, nice breakfasts and an honour fridge for beers, help yourself and make a note of how many you have and pay next day! The Scandinavian lass on the front desk was very friendly,... More

We spent two nights at Warere over the weekend of Sauti za Busara, and thought it was excellent. Good location around 10 minutes walk from the Old Fort and House of Wonders, allowing a nice quiet sleep away from the hustle and bustle followed by a short (and safe) stroll into town the following day. The staff were always helpful,... More

We were received with fresh ginger lemonade and wet towels to get off the first dirt after the ferry ride (desperately needed :) ). Really cute and clean place (rooms are a bit small but we did not mind), wonderful cinnamon soap and really helpful staff. Dinner seemed overprized so we did not eat there...

We found people in Zanzibar as everywhere else great and felt safe . It's a top tourist spot and plenty see . Safari blue island trip is great value... More

We just had one night here before moving onto our next destination. A 2 minute walk to the Ferry Terminal and just 5-10 minute walk to get into Stone Town, so a super handy location! Not sure how I would feel walking through here late at night though. The place was clean and well maintained, the rooms had everything we... More

Dear Nocturne27p, Thank you for your lovely review! Our staff pride themselves in being helpful and friendly, and I am glad they helped you recover from your bout of illness. Just a note, our single rooms have only one bed, you must have been in one of our balcony rooms, which we can arrange for single/double/triple/quad. Thank you for staying... More

Warere continues to justify it's warm reviews and did not disappoint and certainly 'did what it says on the tin'. It is a charming little hotel and although some small iniquities such as an extra bed in the room or an awkwardly added bathroom do make it cramped and hot, it is well located and well kept, not to mention...

This is a super little guest house, ideally located on the edge of Stone Town and very close to the ferry port. Great value for money, if you are on a budget. Rooms are fairly basic, but comfortable and clean. Breakfast on the roof top terrace good. No AC but fairly efficient roof fans. Staff are very helpful. They arranged... More

While I was traveling in Northern Tanzania in October-November 2014, quite some people recommended me this place to stay in Zanzibar. I trusted their recommendations and decided to book the place. Oh my, I was really impressed! When I got off a ferry from Dar, the ferry port in Zanzibar looked to me like a total chaos and I didn't... More
