The staff was amazing. They were sooo helpful in providing clean, charming rooms and facilities, booking tours for us (for very good prices), offering great advice for Zanzibar, and the complete, free breakfasts (included with room) with fresh cooked eggs to order, fruits, and handmade pastries were beyond excellent! Every request or question was cheerfully handled and every one of... More

A group of use shared two rooms and they were just wonderful! Great air con, comfortable beds (could use more blankets) and a safe environment. The breakfast in the morning was quite nice and it felt like a nice secluded home as we traveled each day to the north beach. Just a short walk from the Stonetown market as well... More

I recently stayed at Princess Salme Inn while undertaking 4 weeks of research in Zanzibar, and I would whole heartedly recommend it to anyone visiting Stone Town. The rooms are simple but very comfortable, and contain everything you need while staying there. The roof top area is a great place to unwind at the end of the day. What makes... More

I found it quite difficult when looking for a place to stay in Stone Town to find somewhere that was budget friendly yet not completely run down. After lots of searching Princess Salme was the hotel I chose and I was definitely not disappointed. The rooms are basic yet very clean, with 4-poster beds that were comfy and had full... More

The staff was amazing. The room was so nice compared to other options listed at the same price. The air conditioning was the best part. After a long hot day the room cooled down quickly. Very nice breakfast with eggs, fruit, and fried local food. I wish we had stayed longer.
