So I will start with the key need-to-know points about any hotel you may be considering a stay at...
The Maru Maru hotel is extremely well located in the centre of Stone Town.
The staff are hospitable, friendly and attentive.
The rooms are clean and comfortable with bed linen of an above average standard for its class (albeit a little on the smaller side).
The roof top restaurant is a great place to have breakfast (watching the sunrise) and an evening cocktail (watching the sunset) with the hotel offering a complimentary cocktail upon arrival. It is nice to have this quality of a restaurant on your doorstep.
Above all, my favourite "thing" about the hotel, second to the people of course, is the atmosphere that it creates o so well. This seems to be achieved from the charming staff members and the decor (notably, the lantern lit corridors in the evening and traditional dark-wood interior) which combined create an endearing atmosphere.
This truly was a lovely place to stay.
