We spent few days in Stone Town and really enjoyed the Zanzibar life. Zanzibar accommodation is within the city center and close to anything that Stone Town can offer. We spent $15 per person in a triple double bed room with en-suite toilet + breakfast was included. Amazing view from the breakfast room and friendly staff.

Hello Fellas, I recently stayed in this hotel it's just AWESOME. The best part is the room top, where they provided breakfast with sunrise or dinner along the moon light. A place up so high where you can see the entire stone town along with three minor islands of Zanzibar (Prison, Bawe, Snake). The staff is great, friendly, helpful, and... More

You could walk past it & not even realise. We stayed at ZDL having returned late in the day from the east coast & wanted to get... More

If you are looking for a fancy bed and an air-conditioned room, you are in the wrong place. But if you don't mind a normal bed with a mosquito net (most important thing) then it's perfectly fine. Unless you plan on spending the day in your room, it is a great place to leave your things and walk though Stone... More

This is the most random place I've ever stayed. The trip didn't start well as they had kindly arranged for a taxi to meet us from the airport. No taxi arrived so we had to make our own way there. When we eventually got there a very rude man opened the door who had no idea what was going on... More
