In old town (which means you have to walk to get there), but easy to find your way around from there to all the places you want to see in old town. We stayed in the Macchiato room -- a quiet, back room that was great. The staff is very friendly, the rooftop is beautiful in the mornings, and the... More

Beautiful property in a central location, loved the breakfast and everything else we ate there as well, lots of good reasons to find an excuse for another spiced cappuccino or savory crepe. Rooms all have a ton of character and at the same time are very comfortable, with AC or (screened) windows options. Staff are extremely as well!

Rooftop is super, very nice breakfast. Lovely room decoration. In walking distance to stonetown by going through some winding lanes; surrounding by local atmosphere, worth taking time to explore. Need to walk a little bit to the hotel, as taxi can not reach the doorway.

Nice place to stay. Nice staff, good breakfest, beautiful room and very nice coffee! Good location in the middle of the old city. Roof top terrace is nice for view over the city. WiFi quality is very good as well.

We booked a 1 night in the coffee house based on the trip advisor reviews. Our night in the Espresso room was like you expect from espresso: hard to sleep. The room is on the 1st floor, front side of the building. The windows don't close properly, so it's like you sleep in the middle of the street (lot's of... More

Dear Wouter Many thanks for staying with us and we regret your visit was not to your expectation. There is indeed a considerable noise level in the streets of Zanzibar, sometimes long into the evening. We apologize for the low water pressure that morning, which was due to a part-blockage in the water tank, which was rectified afterwards. Hoping you... More

wow - our first night in Zanzibar was spent at this beautiful restored original town house in the heart of old stone town. Service was very friendly and efficient - breakfast on the roof wonderful. Early morning walk - actually enjoying getting lost in the narrow streets . Only a short transit from Airport or Ferry. Highly recommend to this... More

If you're a coffee lover this is the place to stay in Stone Town! The award winning barista offers a complimentary welcome drink on arrival then you can enjoy the tranquil ambience of his British colonial style guest house, tucked away amongst the busy streets of central Stone Town. The rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished. The four poster beds... More

Here is a boutique hotel, with perfectly refurbished rooms in an old house of Zanzibar's Stone-town which perfectly recreates a little bit of the atmosphere of the old city. The good part is that you get to enjoy this at a good (fair) price. My only problem was that they were quite late in responding to my e-mails before arriving... More
