I was so pleased with our stay in the Zanzibar Coffee House. The staff are friendly, the building is beautiful and breakfast on the rooftop terrace was a pleasure. For breakfast there is a selection of fruits and breads/pastries and you can order additional hot food at no extra charge. The cafe downstairs also serves delicious food and drink throughout... More

We stayed for one night at the Zanzibar Coffee House on the way off to one of the coaster areas. We had a nice time, and were well looked after. The room was large and the building itself is particularly cool. Worth noting that the breakfast is quite disappointing, though the roof top is not. I'm torn between a 4... More

This is such a gem of a place to stay! From the moment you step inside the aroma of coffee sets the swoon. Downstairs there is a wonderful coffee shop serving glorious coffee and divine pastries, the orange cream pie is to die for. The rooms are lovely, the furniture and furnishings, charming and the breakfast served roof top is... More

Zanzibar Coffee House was great - amazing accommodation in the heart of Stone Town. It was in a perfect location for getting everywhere, including the markets and to the beach. The rooms were lovely, clean and spacious, and everywhere smelt of delicious coffee! I would also recommend the food, particularly the milkshakes. The only thing that let the Coffee House... More

This hotel is an amazingly well decorated boutique hotel, very good breakfast at the roof top, very clean as well. Down side: bathroom is outside the room, bed not very firm and one more detail, we were going to the north of the Island so we ask the people working in the coffee shop of the hotel about the prices...

The coffee house impressed me so much after seeing its first hotel at Utengule at South of Tanzania. You are greeted and welcomed by one of the modt incredible staff that you can ever imagine. They welcome you at the moment you enter the doorstep of the coffeehouse and offer you some delicious wraps and fresh coffees. The best part... More

Our 2 night stay at the coffee house was excellent. Each room is completely unique with beautifully ornate beds. The roof terrace is a lovely place to eat breakfast which ranges from fruit and cereal to fresh pancakes, not to mention the wonderful coffee. The location is very central, less than 10 minutes from the sea front. I would highly... More

The Zanzibar Coffee House is a beautiful, original hotel with charmingly furnished roofs, a great breakfast on the rooftop terrace and very friendly staff! The drinks and cakes in the actual coffee house downstairs is absolutely recommendable.

Ideal location to experience great comfort, friendliness and helpfulness in the midst of the ambience of old Stonetown! Two excellent restaurants just a minute away - and a short walk to the beachfront oneway, the local market another, and the site of the old slave spot another. Great atmosphere in the coffee house and all comforts - plus superb breakfast... More
