It's just next to a superette and has a GREAT beach with volleyball set up. Sunset here is beautiful. The rooms OK - not dirty that you'd be afraid to sleep there, but not super clean either. AC + fan are very helpful in humid Zanzibar climate. Water pressure in shower not wonderful. Breakfast is painfully slow even when there... More

In late February I made a dive trip to Nungwi in Zanzibar. We rented a cottage at Nungwi inn. Unlike the photos stored on tripadvisor we enjoyed our stay. The bathroom on the picture, we have not seen. Ours was white, not the most modern bathroom, but clean. Nungwi inn is run by a family of locals. These people are... More

It's hard to find many places at this price in Nungwi and this was an average price out of a few places I saw but definately a great location. We were just metres from the beach and it's a fantastic view. The room itself is basic, the bedroom area seemed clean enough although the bathroom could have done with a... More

Spent a couple of nights in Nungwi inn as part of a package deal with Spanish Dancer dive center. The rooms are fairly basic, but clean with comfy beds. We had issues with the breaker to our bungalow which kept popping every time the AC would kick in. Fortunately we did not really need the aircon and didn't ask to... More

I travelled to Zanzibar to spend Christmas with my partner who was overlanding through Africa and his trip was scheduled to spend Christmas there. Our room was right on the beach and was simple, but clean and comfortable with aircon and a fan. The bed was large and comfortable with a mosquito net. The only negative was the low water... More

We enjoyed two nights here on an ATC tour. We found the double room to be clean and comfortable. Aircon, queen bed and a large mosquito net. Shower pressure wasn't great, the only downside. The location was perfect, just on the beach and next to plenty of more expensive resorts if you want a better meal (we would recommend Langi... More

The rooms are simple but excellent for low budget travelers. The manager was very nice and helped us with every thing we needed. Nice breakfast and wifi. The diving company that close to the hotel is very good. We had a great time in here!

Nungwi is just beautiful but I fear that the Inn is resting on its laurels. The staff were great and very helpful but I reckon with a few touches this hotel could be very deserving of its place in paradise. Rooms were grand and just for sleeping in, food was lovely, cocktails great but really more could be done with... More

I'm really surprised about the bad reviews. It's located right on the beach. The room itself is ok, clean, big bed, bathrooms are ok. Nice food (reasonable priced for a hotel). Rates (for a single room) are ok. If coming back to Nungwi I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for 3 days, left to visit another part of the island but decided to come back for another 2! The location is absolutely superb!! We managed to get the price down quite a lot but we were there during low season. Zanzibar is not a cheap place hotelwise so this was pretty good for the location and the... More
