Although I didn't stay in the rooms, I visited the cafe a couple of times in April. It was clean and pleasant with friendly helpful staff. The food and drink was delicious and only boiled, clean water is used in food preparation. The cafe is supportive in the local community which is why I went there in the first place... More

Not only tourists but also locals come for a coffee or a fresh fruitjuice. The very joyful and friendly Anna and her staff will help you with all your touristical wishes. Special of... More

It's all about location here, which is right where you want to be. We loved our spacious room; however, Wi-Fi was accessible only by standing smack up against the door or in the very uninviting hallway where the night manager (helpfully?) suggested I pull up a chair. Although I had asked for a quiet room, it was very noisy the... More

Stone Town Café is in the centre of Shangani, which is the centre of Stone Town, which is the most attractive place of Zanzibar Town. It’s the best starting point for your visit, and here you can get a very good lunch, based on local recepies. No beer… but a very special cup of coffee! It is also the only... More

I stayed here for ten days and can say that I truly felt like I was at home. The local staff are super friendly and capable (hats off to Anna). The owner is local which is great with me, as I know my money is going back into the community. I stayed in room one - nice and spacious, and... More

This a very small bed and breakfast. From the outside it might not be very impressive. But the rooms themselves are very nice, and seem to be recently renovated. We had two rooms for one night and really enjoyed our stay there. The staff were very helpful and the cafe downstairs offered very nice breakfast with great sized portions. Location... More

This place is as good as all the rave reviews below. We were very pleased with the balcony room even though the wifi/AC is not as strong as we would have liked. The location is unbeatable and we enjoyed the breakfast selection. What topped our experience is the amazing team and their great service. While keeping the place running during... More

We came here for breakfast and it was so good that we came back again the next day for lunch. The menu is very western but with local ingredients and the portions are very generous. Prices are reasonable, we had lunch for 3 with drinks at around TSH 50,000. Lots of healthy options, or you can try the coconut bread... More
