Everything great at the Coffe House . Special thanks to the ladies serving the breakfast! However the bread in the café would need some improvement so the quality meet the high price....Coming back!!!

-we had a wonderful stay at Zanzibar Coffeehouse - everything was great, the room was spacious and clean, we liked the location of the AC, because it was not directly over the bed. Everyone was superfriendly and helpful. I loved the roof terrace, where we had breakfast. Especially the Muesli was just GREAT. Would definitely recommend the hotel to all... More

The Coffee House has a lot of character. The rooms are very unique and the rooftop is great for breakfast We got welcome drinks upon our arrival. The hotel is located in the heart of stone town and super accessible to everything.

The only thing the pictures here can't tell you, is how hot it is in Stone Town. Luckily the Coffee House has air conditioning for those of us not used to African temperatures. What a great and unique place this is. It is beautiful with trying, it seems. The food is very good, and breakfast on the roof top is... More

We were recommended to go here by a friend and I would definitely recommend it for anyone going to Zanzibar! It was a little challenging to find in the winding streets of Stone Town but it was a fun little adventure. There are sometimes signs that point you in the right direction. We also found it in our cached google... More

We stayed in the bourbon room in a giant canopy bed. Surrounded by antiques and period furniture it felt as if we were going to see a Sultan coming down the hallway at any moment. The breakfast on the roof was wonderful. The only thing I would have changed was to have coffee available a little earlier (given my caffeine... More

We stayed at Zanzibar Coffee House for just one-night. We especially sought to stay there as had heard great things. the location is great, the decor beautiful. In particular the rooftop was very beautiful - we enjoyed a beer watching the sunset. We departed the hotel very early in the morning to take the first ferry to Dar. The hotel... More

The place is neat, clean, well organized and serves an amazing breakfast. The view from the terrace top is also great. I totally recommend it to anyone wishing to spend a couple of days in Stone Town.
