I reserved a triple-room with a credit card via e-mail. At check-out,I was asked how I wanted to pay for the room. I indicated I preferred to pay cash since we were close to being done with our trip and we wanted to unload local currency. At check-out, there was no mention of my credit card having already been charged.... More

Our group booked four rooms at the Zanzibar Hotel for the weekend of the 15th-17th of February at the end of January. Despite the fact that we had provided a local contact number (we all live in Dar es Salaam) and been in e-mail communication - they decided to wait until the first member of our party arrived in Stone...

The hotel manager apologized and offered us a reserved table at Africa House (sister hotel) for sunset drinks, very nice. One room had no hot water the first night, the AC... More

The Zanzibar hotel became a home away from home during my stay. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful, done in a traditional Zanzibari style, and the garden is a pleasure to relax in. The location is very convenient, right in the heart of Stone Town. Thankyou so much for a great stay!

It is more secluded than the more famous Africa House, but you can use the facilities at Africa House (a one minute walk) without having all the crowds hanging around your hotel. Staff very helpful, but not overbearing.

There is a beautiful garden surrounded by lush plants with the occasional visit from one of the adorable resident monkeys. Accommodation includes a delicious english style breakfast with a variety of fruit. The owner, Denise,... More
