We stayed here at the end of our over landing trip. First two nights with the tour, and last few just me and my partner. When we checked in, our tour guide asked for us the have the best room as we were staying on longer. We got a bungalow on the beach, which we initlaly thought was brililant. We... More

He had 28 people in our group and Nungwi Inn met our needs. It is well located on the beach with several dining choices in the area. Rooms were clean, but the bathrooms need some work. The bathroom tap did not work well and the shower is almost certainly sitting on mold since water flows freely under if through the... More

We stayed here as part of a tour so am not sure how expensive it is.   The bungalows are basic but have air conditioning, comfortable beds, hot powerful showers and are fairly clean.  Staff were friendly and were keen to ensure that our room was a double as opposed to a twin four poster bed and put the beds...

This is a decent budget accommodation right on the beach. We stayed there with our then 2 year old daughter. She loved the beach in front of the hotel because she could wade out into the water quite a ways when the tide was out. We enjoyed the local activity in the afternoons on the beach (pick-up football games). The... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel and enjoyed the room, the pool, the very nice restaurant and more especially the great beach. The hotel has all the amenities that you can look for. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very copious. The personnel was nice but for the most part limited in English. Free internet!

This hotel was booked by a tour after a two-week overland safari through Kenya and Tanzania. When we first arrived the group was thrilled - beautiful beach, nice-looking beach bungalows instead of camping. But the rooms were dirty and the hassle on the beach was unbelievable, really aggressive especially towards women. On our final night, a woman in our group... More

I ended a 10 day safari with 2 nights at the Nungwi Inn. The booking was made by my tour so I can't comment on that service but I splashed out on a single room, which had a double bed, for 45$US (not sure if this was discounted as we were a group) and was happy with what I got,... More

Having looked at the choices in the area this seems to be the best mid-priced option if you are looking for a reasonable standard of accommodation right on the beach. We stayed at the Nungwi Inn in December. The hotel organised transfers for us from the airport, which went smoothly. We booked a garden room, just back from the beach... More

This came after fruitless atempts to get accomodation in Nungwi in the New Year frenzie. Nungwi inn is positioned in the best beach in Zanzibar, in my opinion the rest (Not in North Zanzibar) has so much sea weed and crazy wind you wouldn't bask in the sun to relax. Very close to the beach at a walking distance of... More

Zanzibar is absolutely gorgeous, but staying at Nungwi Inn has nearly spoiled the whole experience for us. Rooms are terrible, especially the bathrooms. Old and terribly dirty. Guys at the reception not the least bit helpful. We stayed there as part of a group and the place was prebooked for us unfortunately. Don't know the official room rates but no... More
