Our stay at Flamingo was excellent. The feeling was one of the best. You can start your day on the roof top with a free great breakfast , chatting with your new friends. The quiet sharing bathroom room was clean with comfortable beds, mosquito net, a sink, ceiling fan and desk. We highly recommend this place with his smiling staff.... More

With the Flamingo Guesthouse, there are no suprises; and I like that. there are plenty of place ready to rip you off in Stone Town, but this place is not one of them. You pay 10,000 each and you get a simple, small room with a net, comfy bed and you share the bathroom. Stretch it to 15,000 and you... More

There are communal toilets and showers on each floor. Breakfast is included in the price and is served till 9:30am. It includes simple toast, fruit,... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2007

The Flamingo Guest House is one of the oldest no-frills guest houses in Stone Town catering mainly for backpackers and other low-budget visitors to Zanzibar. Clean, basic, almost clinical, it is good value for money. It is located in a wide enough (by Zanzibar standards) street called Mkunazini, just behind the old Majestic Cinema, and within walking distance of all... More
