Charming place. I stayed in a single room with a private bathroom down the hall. Room was really nice with a/c, clean bathroom. Breakfasts on the roof were amazing. I also lunch and coffee there during afternoon breaks and it's just a really neat place. It's sort of hard to find. The taxi will park at the market and you... More

I used to live in Zanzibar and have long recommended Zanzibar Coffee House to those visiting. The last time I returned to Zanzibar for a visit I stayed there myself. It's a lovely spot, with a great location, and fantastic coffees and treats. The rooftop offers special views and a little oasis from the crowded town center.

We stayed here as a stop over and were not expecting much as it was very reasonably priced for Zanzibar. However, we were pleasantly surprised. We were given a welcome drink and the room was very nice with a safe and mosquito net, although there were no insects about. We were a bit worried the bathroom wasn't en suite but... More

We decided to stay at the Coffee House Hotel after having visited their exquisite website and seeing their location on google maps. We expected a beautiful hotel in the heart of Stone Town and were delivered with both. The hotel has gorgeous rooms and some decadent furnishing as well as a wonderful rooftop lounge where breakfast is served. With a... More

We stayed at the macchiato room for two nights. We had expected a bit more comfort in the room for $ 135. The room and especially the bathroom were very small. But we were most disappointed of the reception staff. They always tried to sell us expensive tours, asked us again and again if we took something out of the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Coffee House and is a real central point where you can return for coffee after sightseeing. Easy to walk to the harbour, Fort and other points of interest. The staff at the hotel were welcoming and the room was really spacious. The roof-top terrace was great for pancakes and chilling away from the... More

My husband and I stayed at this place for one night. We chose the Cappuccino room which was excellent! Plenty of space, renovated bathroom, clean, etc. We loved it! Staff is friendly. Breakfast is superb! Home made jam, fruits, omelette and, of course, great coffee! It's true that the taxi does not go all the way to the hotel but... More

I found Coffee House ok, but not great. Yes, the rooftop for breakfast is a great way to start your day. The coffee, breakfast and views are perfect! However, at the time of booking (months in advance), the only room available with an en suite bathroom was $135 per night. At that price I expected more. The bed was rickety... More

This is a beautiful old house, tastefully renovated. It feels very inviting and peaceful. Our room was one of the smaller ones but nice, clean and with good beds. The private bathroom is accross the corridor, equally beautifully decorated but slightly musty. But while you are in the hotel you will spend most of your time on the rooftop terrace... More

I love this place. I have been there 3 times in the last 4 years and I will go again!!! For couples ask for the cappucino swite, one of the best rooms I have ever seen
