The room was beautiful, spacious, and impeccable. It had a/c, a television, wifi, hot water, and a beautifully hand-carved Zanzibari bed and sofa. It exceeded our expectations. Their breakfast is an appreciated deviation from a typical Zanzibar guest house breakfast of a Spanish omelet, toast, and instant coffee. They had French Press coffee and an expansive breakfast menu with options... More

Stone Town Café is not luxurious but who needs that when you are smack in the middle of such an interesting place. The location is just blocks from most everything you'd want to do in Stone Town. The room was somewhat sparse but still had Zanzibar charm -- and air conditioning. For breakfast you choose from the menu at the... More

I visit this for a long breakfast and coffee - and to write- every time I visit Stone Town. In a place that is rapidly developing, and where the atmosphere is changing as traders become increasingly ruthless as the economy grows exponentially, this spot remains a very special spot. Simple, uncluttered and charming the fresh food is wonderful, and the... More

It's not that cheap at $80 a night but the location and quality of the rooms probably make it worth it. I'd recommend it. No complaints at all and they accommodated our midnight arrival nicely. We ate at the restaurant a few times and the food was very tasty.

This Perfectly located Cafe/Bed & Breakfast is perhaps the best choice of stay in all of Stone Town. Stone Town Cafe B&B offers nice, clean and big rooms with A/C, mosquito net, hot water, safety box etc. Good and varied breakfast and excellent service at a reasonable price. Located in the heart of Stone Town near Forodhani Gardens, this B&B... More

Thank you so much for you kind review. I am delighted our friendly team made you fell at home. I am also happy you booked directly with us via our website &/or baraka@zanlink.com and did not click on the misleading Booking.com link above, which is incorrectly re-dirrecting our potential customers to an inferior hotel. Hopefully TripAdvisor will sort this error... More

This B&B really has the perfect location, in the middle of Stone Town, close to the ocean and the gardens. We had a great time there, with a beautiful room, super friendly staff and good food. I can fully recommend it!

From the moment I arrived at Stone Town cafe B&B I knew I was in the right place for Stone Town. Typical old town building, no luxuries but a good vibe, a laid back cafe from where you can watch the people passing by and friendly stuff. The room I got was big, Zanzibar style, with a balcony and a... More

Location is perfect to explore Stone Town - major attractions are close by. Rooms are nicely decorated, beds are comfortable and there are GOOD mosquito nets. There is a refrigerator, air conditioning and en suite in the room. Food is very good, and fresh fruit and vegetables are washed in boiled water. Seriously, you can't go wrong at this place.

We chose this little guest house for it's location, but were really happy to find out the owners fund a school for local kids. Staff here are excellent and oh so friendly - we were sad to leave after our three night stay. As a base for exploring Stone Town it is perfectly located and very easy to find -... More
