We had a great stay at Hiliki House. The house itself is beautiful, and the rooms large, airy, quiet and very comfortable. It's also in a very good central location in Stone Town, within a short walking distance to all the attractions. Our only complaint was that we had emailed the hotel to organise a pick up at the airport,... More

Great location in the center of Stone Town- easy walk to everything! When we arrived, we asked if it was safe to walk around at night, the owner explained to us that a... More

First time in Zanzibar, couldn't be better! Nice rooms, little bit noisy beds, but everything was working well. Helpful owner organized taareb dinner and trip to Prison Island next Morning. We really get out everything on two days in Zanzibar and they helped us a lot.

We (with a friend) spent one night here and really enjoyed the time. Beside the nice rooms, good breakfast must be mentioned the excellent service. The owner reserved a dinner table for us and also a boat trip in a very reasonable price. When we came back to get our luggage, they even let us use a shower of one... More

I spent two nights here last July and had a very nice stay. Pleasant staff, comfortable room with private bathroom, great breakfast and convenient location just minutes from Forodhani Park. Aboud (the manager) was helpful and professional. No complaints whatsoever!

My wife and I spent two nights staying at Hiliki House and it felt like a little piece of paradise amidst the hustle and bustle of Stone Town. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast each morning was a delicious mix of eggs, chapati, crepes and freshly made bread. The host Abud, was very obliging and made us... More

Hiliki House is a great option for stopping by in Stone Town. Very clean, comfortable and well equipped rooms, lovely common area, great breakfast, and location is within easy walking distance of everything you will need. Perhaps the best thing about Hiliki House is Abud, who was a very nice host, and very helpful.

We stayed for almost a week, longer than the usual tourist visit due to a family event. The room was lovely and the bed comfortable. Relaxing in the living room after a long walk was particularly refreshing. The Front Desk staff was very good. The one downside were the breakfasts which were identical every day. That gets old after a... More

A fantastic choice in Stone Town! The intimate size of this hotel and its location made it an ideal choice - cozy and just a few minutes walk from the busier parts of the neighborhood. Expect delightfully quirky accents throughout the property and a delicious array of breads at breakfast. A huge thanks to the manager for letting us stay... More
