I really enjoyed staying in this charming hotel. Although our breakfast was a bit late on day and out air conditioner had problems, I really enjoyed being here. We paid $140 a night for 3 people (2 rooms) in March. The standout part of our stay here was Moudy, the manager. He was fun to hang out with, engaging, helpful, and always available. We got to learn about his life and see a window into being from Zanzibar, his English was excellent, and he was very attentive to our needs. On the first day we asked him about day excursions and he organized a number of outings or us at a cheaper price than we could have gotten at any tour place. Every time we had a complaint or suggestion he would fix the problem right away. I highly advise this place if it is within your price range (I don't know if it's a bargain stay, but it definately was an enjoyable place to be.) It's a great location for exploring Stone Town on foot- near beaches, restaurants, easy to get places, but not too loud.
