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

This beautiful hotel is there for the ones who can appreciate the old Zanzibari Style! I especially do recommend the Jafferji Suite. The kind of room atmosphere seen in movie. You could stay and relax there for hours… But don't forget to go out for a walk as Stone Town hide some other treasure of architectures. Beautiful view and nice... More

What a beautiful and interesting boutique hotel!! We stayed one night as part of our stop in Stonetown at the end of our honeymoon. Coincidentally this was also during the Busara music festival so we ended up enjoying the lovely music whilst having dinner at the rooftop "bar/restaurant area" of the hotel. If you're ever in Stonetown I would not... More

We stayed here for two nights after a 2 months of traveling around different parts of Africa. The room was huge and beautifully decorated. The staff were extremely helpful, freindly and very useful to organise trips through. We had a private dinner for the two of us on the roof top which was an experience never to be forgotton. There...
