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

We really lucked out by booking this charming bed and breakfast. We were able to walk everywhere. Our room was air-conditioned and we were able to control our hot water.The staff was very friendly and very helpful. It was so comfortable.

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

This cafe is my absolute favourite spot in Zanzibar. When I am staying in Stonetown I visit it every day for breakfast, and sometimes even for lunch or dinner. There is not a bad dish on their menu. The waitstaff are all lovely, particularly Anna who works most mornings. The owner is lovely, and will often sit down for a... More

The staff here are excellent - friendly and able to assist with most enquiries. Breakfast amazing as we people watched in the café downstairs. The location fabulous for a long wander or a quick trip out to dinner, as all restaurants and the night market are close by on well lit streets - easy to find too, which is a... More
