I stayed at the Kimte for a few days during the middle of July when I was traveling around Zanzibar! The hotel has a new Manager from June and the hotel has a slightly different name "Kimte Beach Guesthouse & Restaurant". The rooms are simple but really clean and the atmosphere is cozy! The location right in front of the... More

In short- great place, great location, great staff, great price. I stayed for 3 nights and was a woman travelling alone. The management (A Dutch woman and a local Tanzanian man) are absolutely friendly & welcoming and genuinely caring about their guests. The main area of this place is a beach shack style bar/restaurant which is right on the beach... More

We (group of 5 friends) stayed here in September 2013 and really enjoyed it. The rooms are quite expensive for what they are but they were clean, had a fan and mossie nets so they did the job. We shared a bathroom with the other guests which was absolutely fine for us. The people who run it are very nice,... More

The new management is lovely, friendly staff and good food. They helped me arranging transportation and trips and included me in their bonfire/drum nights. Relaxing days at a backpacker's heaven, I will come back!

No hot water 2/3 days. Last night i asked to lower down the bar music (1am) and the they barely touched the volume. The... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with friends whilst travelling around Zanzibar. Jambiani was my personal favourite area in Zanzibar. This beach inn was superbly located with just a 30 second walk from bedroom to beautiful white sandy beach! Very relaxed atmosphere and the owner 'chubby' was very chilled out and welcoming. Bar and restaurant situated on the beach, as well... More
