The friendly and polite staff are ready and waiting to serve. The hotel location is great and the room was nice and clean. The breakfast was included with the room rate and it was excellent. It's a little gem tucked inside the hustle and bustle of Zanzibar

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in Zanzibar Palace Hotel as part of our honeymoon. Having enjoyed the beaches, we wanted to have a taste of 'inner city' Zanzibar. This hotel was perfect; located close to the hustle and bustle of Stone Town without being consumed by the busyness and noise. We stayed in a stunning suite on the... More

We stayed at the Zanzibar Palace for 2 nights in July 2014, it's a beautiful old building with everything you could need. The rooms are stunning and the service was friendly and superb. It's situated in a narrow alley type road in a good location with a short walk to the sea or shops. Would definitely be very happy to... More

My wife and I came for our 1 year anniversary in June 2014 and stayed in the honeymoon suite on the top floor with a gorgeous private bathroom overlooking the sunset with a bottle of champagne in hand! The bathroom on the roof was definitely the special element but the staff and breakfast were also top class. Every room is... More

We made a stopover for two nights in Stone Town in this wonderful "hidden" Hotel. You open the door to a friendly, familiar and helpful and special world. We would stay here again and again and again ... ;-) The staff was helpful in any case ... so they booked the best guide we ever had for a guided visit... More
