We loved the architecture of the building, the decoration of the room, and the breakfast there was one of the yummiest we've had with some amazing coffee to accompany it. The cafe downstairs makes the yummiest... More

I've always loved the Zanzibar Coffee House as a returning tourist in the city, and this time I decided to splurge on a room for one night. I took the room without an attached bathroom and expected it to be simple, but it was spectacular! Gorgeous room, very clean and fresh, and the bathroom was even bigger than the bedroom!... More

Excellent hotel with few rooms, charming staff, everyone very helpful. I will choose this place again next time on Zanzibar. They were also helpful in arranging an excursion on the island. Good coffee.

This is a great spot. Room we were in was perfect with exceptional AC! Well kept clean and spacious. People were very friendly and helpful. The coffee shop is very nice with their celebrity Barista, a former Tanzanian champion. The breakfast was great and delivered on the rooftop.

We had heard about Zanzibar Coffee House from some friends of ours and when I booked a room, I asked if they were running any specials. Manuel was really helpful and let me know about an off-season special, so we got our room for 1/2 price! We stayed in the Macchiato room, which was beautiful with a big bed, air... More

We had a wonderful stay here. Everybody was very friendly and professional. All the rooms are very unique and well maintained. It's central location allowed for easy access to many sites and restaurants. Best of all was waking up to the smell of amazing coffee. That was a true treat.

A wonderful and welcoming place to stay, where you feel like family and the coffee is amazing. A great boutique hotel with clean, air conditioned rooms, good food and coffee! Each morning starts with rooftop dining of a complimentary breakfast that is DELICIOUS. The food, coffee and teas in the café are all wonderful! I would definitely stay here again.

What a beautiful place, great coffee upon arrival, incredible view over Stone Town, charming and tasteful rooms, and a delicious breakfast up on the rooftop. A treat of a place at the end of our trip. Wish I was back there now.
