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

My friends and I stayed at Nungwi Inn for 3 nights after a trip in Stonetown and the south of the island. We are used to sleeping in simple hotels and hostels but Nungwi Inn was very disappointing. We picked Nungwi Inn after having seen a few other places to compare what was available. It seemed like Nungwi Inn had... More
