After the hustle and bustle and heath of Stone Town it is a relief to enter your cool and quiet airconditioned room ! Everything about this place is right: the authentic style decoration, the most quiet AC, no noise from the streets, the friendly staff, the soft towels, clean sheets, nice roof terrace, good working wifi and perfect breakfast.

Stayed two nights in this B&B and had a pleasant experience. A big, beautiful old mansion. My room was the acacia suite, which was very large (mainly reserved it for the attached bathroom). Decoration was nice, but a bit fatigued, with some humidity marks on the walls, and iron stains on the shower. The building is somewhat removed from the... More

Thank you for 3 perfect days at the Zanzibar Coffee House. Great location in the middle of the Old Town, excellent breakfast on the roof top with an amazing view, lovely furnished rooms, absolut friendly and competent staff, delicious coffee and snacks/cakes... Iced Cappuccino with Vanilla Icedream is a MUST!

On our third trip to Zanzibar we decided to finally take some time to explore Stone Town rather than just heading straight for the beaches of the east coast. The Zanzibar Coffee House proved a great choice for somewhere central from which to explore. We stayed in the 'cappuccino' room which was spacious and comfortable. We arrived quite late at... More

I loved every minute of my stay here! Charming staff, great coffee and beautifull rooms. Not far from some of the good shops for tourists in stonetown. Can also recommend dinner at house of spices. Great restaurant near by!

I just did a quick, relaxing weekend in Zanzibar. Never left Stone Town and, once I settled in at ZCH, I almost didn't want to leave this hotel. Great boutique setting, wonderful foods, and the best coffee I've had in Africa.

It has been my 3rd time to stay at the Zanzibar Coffee House and I always enjoyed it. This time though, there was a bit of a down side as there was some pungent smell coming into our room from outside. Still, I did enjoy my stay there.

I'll start with the good: Rooms are straight out of a swish magazine and was awesome, bathroom although over the hall was nicely decorated as well within the same theme. Screens on windows, mozzie net over bed and they spray the room before you would be turning in for sleep. Breakfast on the roof top was really good, as was... More

Great coffee, perfect location to explore the Stone Town but most of all, very clean and cosy rooms. Our baby is a crawler and believe me, it is one of not too many places I could let him be on the floor. Not only in our room but also on the roof terrace where we enjoyed our breakfast. I loved...
