All of us 5 have been very pleased to stay in this "hotel de charme". The management as well as the personnel were very helpful. The rooms are very confortable, the décorations is "de bon gout", the restaurant and the terrace are delightful and the service is excellent.

I recently had the pleasure of spending a night at Zanzibar Coffee House. Not knowing Stone Town that well finding the hotel at night proved to be a bit of a mission as it is not in the traditional town center, and you cannot reach it by car. Once we arrived however the welcome was warm and friendly. I found... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Zanzibar Coffee House. The hotel was quiet and well furnished and located right in the heart of Stone Town. The roof terrace is absolutely lovely and you can sit up there throughout the day. The breakfast was absolutely excellent, and the staff service cheerful and helpful. My only comment would be that when... More

I loved every moment of my stay at Zanzibar coffee house. It was recommended to me by a friend. Great rooftop breakfast, great iced spiced coffee and beautiful rooms. Must stay! Only complaint would be the lights in the hallway made sleeping a bit difficult.

Before coming to Zanzibar Coffee House, I has spent 2 evenings at Tembo Hotel. After leaving, I spent 4 days at Kendwa Rocks Beach House and Zanzibar Coffee House was by far my favorite place. Zanzibar Coffee house is in the middle of Stone Town, so if you are not familiar with its location, it can be difficult to find.... More

Great stay. Zanzibar Coffee House is a boutique hotel in the middle of Stone Town. Great location, tastefully decorated rooms, good bed, impeccably clean and great service. Manager Salome Siegrist and her staff go out of their way to help. Breakfast at the rooftop was very good.

Room and bathroom was clean. Rooftop has great view. but closing at 10pm is such a pity. Thank you for preparing wine and beer inside. It is located in the stone down so it`s not easy to access at night.

Great place to stay if you want to experience the uniqueness of stone town. Rooms are fairly reasonably priced and have air con, which can be a lifesaver in the Zanzibar heat! Great location and great service! Would definitely go back!

A 20 min walk from the ferry, welcomed by a complimentary coffee. A 2 pm check-in, meant time filled following courteous hosts' site seeing tips. Left luggage at desk and explored. A hot humid day, happy to return to unique, beautiful antique decorated rooms: AC on, linens turned down. Slept great. Woke up to neighboring mosques' early call to prayer.... More
