Here the staff is very friendly and helpful and may even invite you out after work or to their villages during their days off. The location is right at a beautiful beach though Jambiani is quite far from Stone town (1hr) so not many restaurant options, most of them linked to the hotels in the area. You can also walk...

We stayed for 5 nights in Jambiani, at Kimte and I think this is the best place in Jambiani! Just few meters from the beach, with bar/restaurant on the beach, great staff, very helpful and friendly. Rooms are nice and clean, with fan and mosquito net. I definitely would recommend Kimte!

My friend and I stayed in a spacious dorm room with (huge) ensuite bathroom. Both bathroom and rooms were extremely clean, with even flowers decorating each bed. Staff was very helpful. The guesthouse and its bar, which also serves food, are right on the beach. Guests of Kimte are allowed to use both wifi and the swimming pool of the... More

Although there were certainly some good things about Kimte: the location is superb, the staff is sweet, and the food is decent- I left here more disappointed than anything else. I know this is one of the cheaper places to stay in Jambiani, but I still don't think the price (we paid $70/night) matches the value of what we got.... More

This place is completely renovated. The new owner is having a new staff and is renovating al the rooms. They are working together with "The Coral Rock", a very nice hotel/restaurant 50m away. You can use their infinity pool and WiFi for free. Prices are a bit higher than before, but still affordable.

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

This place was just chilled paradise after exhausting trips around Tanzania. We were planning on going to Malawi, but could not resist the ambience of this place. The acommodation and the bar service was minimalistic but considering the price and amazing location (only part of the island where it is not a resort like place with UK fotball games on... 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

The food from the bar is great and they also prepare great fresh juice. The rooms is all you need; clean, mossie net, comfortable,... More
