What a special place in the middle of the maze that is Stonetown. Surrounded by beautiful artifacts from the owners collection, each suite is a different chapter in the same book. We had the Karma Sutra suite which is a two story room with an outside bath overlooking the town, the Adnan suite and the Salme suite which is huge... More

This is a quaint hotel right in Stone Town. I believe it's probably a 3 star hotel but that's because I know what a real luxury hotel is. I give this hotel very high ratings because it really is very nice. The staff are extremely helpful - my friend stayed elsewhere and each time we were to meet, someone from... More

Located in a small alleyway in the middle of Stonetown, this charming Hotel has a character of its own and is decorated with Arabic and African elements throughout the place. We stayed at the Freddy Mercury Suite. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Hot water supply/pressure has room for improvement though.

I HIGHLY recommend this beautiful hotel. A travel agency recommended it, and I’m happy they did. The service was top notch and every attentive. The restaurant food was great and the free breakfast was delicious. I stopped in to see some other hotel and this one was, by far, the nicest boutique hotel in Stonetown. I will stay here again...

We stayed at Jafferji House and Spa for 3 nights in the Adnan suite. The room was beautifully furnished and very clean, with comfortable bedding and air conditioning for when it got too hot. The location of the hotel is perfect for visiting the Forodhani food market at night, 2mins from the ocean and neighbours several shops. Very quiet at... More

Wish I had stayed here. The rooms are beautiful, full of character and charm and really good value. It was low season and the deal they offered was lower than the first place I had booked into which was way way less nice. I had already moved once and had a good room elsewhere and as it was a short... More

I went to Zanzibar for a business trip and stayed here. The hotel has amazing charm and decor. The staff are very helpfull and friendly. The food is the best I had in a long time. Highly recommend anything on the menu. They didn't have a big selection of alcohol available, but speak with the management when you arrive and... More
