Rood top terrace is wonderful, rooms are cozy, beds are king size - my single room had a triple bed. staff was very friendly, breakfast was hearty. It so happened that i got sick while there and the staff took such good care... 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

My partner and I spent a night at Warere. We were picked up from the ferry site and walked to the hotel. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. We were given some juice and some wet towels to freshen up. The rooms were clean and the service was good as well. I would go back there once I am... More

Stayed here on our first 2 nights on the island before heading North. Then booked another night to come back before we fly. The reception was great with a cold towel and refreshing juice. We had a room without a balcony as we were out most of the time. The beds are big and high! Showers good. Breakfast is nice... More

We spent there a few nights in October 2014. It is such an inviting place. It feels very comfortable and you can arrange many different trips through very friendly people who work there. Breakfasts on the terrace with a nice view are special. The passion fruit and other juices were delicious.Thank you Warere

Great location - walking distance to everything, but set back from the street in a lovely garden. They met us at the ferry, and we hired their driver to take us on spice tour and to the beach. We loved it from when we first arrived and were met with cold towels and a refreshing ginger drink. Bedrooms had AC,... More

Warere Town House is a charming hotel across the pier at the edge of the tourist district. It is within walking distance to the museums. The draw backs are that there is not a paved path to it from the street, nor is there a lift . The staff welcomes you with a cool home mad gingerlade. My room was... More

Great value! Cute place. We were greeted with cold towels and juice upon arrival and the front desk staff were very helpful with maps, taxis and restaurant recommendations. Rooms had AC, were clean and comfortable and cheap! Great location, 5 minute walk from ferry. We booked via email; they responded promptly and everything was as they said it would be... More
