I spent one night in Stone Town and really enjoyed the service and the room itself at Warere. The room was very comfortable and the hotel is beautiful - I loved the rooftop terrace. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They were always willing to assist with directions around Stone Town as well as booking tours. As checkout was... More

Stone town is mayhem and we were nervous about our accommodation but this place was fantastic. The maps make it look further out than it is but it's only a few minutes walk to all the action. The staff were fantastic from the moment they greeted us and the room far exceeded our expectations. Ask for room 17!

From the moment I found Warere online I knew it was the place I wanted to stay at in Stone Town and it certainly didn't disappoint. I was travelling on my own and booked a night at Warere for the last night of a long trip through East Africa. I booked one of the balcony rooms and it was lovely,... More

I enjoyed my stay at Warere Town House, including airport collection, both on arrival in Stone Town and again on my return from the east coast. The location isn't in the very heart of the town, but it's within walking distance of everywhere and very close to Mercury's, the fab sunset venue named after the lead singer of Queen, born... More

Stayed 6 night recently. Very happy, it's cheap, simple and clean. Great staff and helpful. Rooms are small but I was solo and barely spent time there. Its a little far from town but still reasonable location. Very pleased with warere overall.

This hotel was way above our expectations. Refreshing cold towels and a fruit juice on arrival. Clean spacious room with a little bacony. Bed was quite high up but reasonably comfortable. Hotel staff were extremely helpful and organised a spice tour for us as well as letting us store our bags there while on the tour after we had checked... More

It's a beautiful little place, and very close to the ferry; a little distant from Stonetown restaurants and shops. Our major problem was the young man managing the day-to-day operations. He seems to have a problem with honesty. He lied to us numerous times and tried to over-charge us by $20 USD. The manager was unavailable repeatedly throughout a 24... More

Warere, General Manager at Warere Town House, responded to this review

Dear Michael K, Thank you for your comments. The “young man” you refer to has been with us for three years and I can assure you that in all that time he has proved to be a formidably honest, hardworking employee. You booked your room through booking.com and reserved a SINGLE room. When you arrived you came with your wife.... More

This is place is great - especially for what you pay. I wouldn't say it's exactly in the thick of things in Stonetown, but it's not a far walk to get to the House of Wonders or down to Forodhani Gardens. It's also really close to the port, so getting to and from the hotel from the ferry is super... More

Myself and two friends stayed for 9 nights when we were working in the hospital on the other side of town. Ok for location, just don't travel any further North. The room was good for what we paid, my bed made a bit of noise but this is a minor complaint. They were kept clean and the hot shower was... More

My wife and I stayed in four hotels in Zanzibar over a two week period to 29 June 2014, and the Warere Town House stands head and shoulders above the others, including notably a four star hotel reviewed separately. The professionalism, warmth, and helpfulness of the staff were immediate, and sustained over the 4 days we stayed there. They made... More
