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.

The ladies at Zanzibar Coffee House are the sweetest ever and will make sure you get the perfect stay. We spent hours on the rooftop terrace which is the perfect place both to start your day with the fantastic coffee of the house and to end your day with a beer from the self service bar.

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.

Tucked away, in central Stonetown, a haven of peace and recuperation, with the best coffee in Zanzibar, and fascinating bedrooms which were very clean and comfortable. The facilities included nets and room safes and the bathroom was very modern and a delight to use. The staff were extraordinarily welcoming and helpful. The roof top terrace for breakfast or those moments... More

The women who run this hotel are wonderful. Rooms are pleasant and the coffee is fantastic. Most hotels in Zanzibar are quite expensive for what you get but this is good value for money and very clean. Breakfast on the roof is a highlight of the day

We loved this place, because it was so charmingly decorated. The rooms were large and comfortable with mosquito nets on the beds. As everyone else has said, breakfast on the rooftop is a highlight. You could spend hours up there. We also ate downstairs at their restaurant, and of course, the coffee is excellent! The nightguard is always on the... More
