We stayed at Maru Maru for one night after doing a safari, and the clean, cool, airconditioned rooms were more than welcome! The hotel looks beautiful, very boutique with lovely decorations in the lobby and public areas. The hotel is also right in the middle of stone town and as you step out the door you are in the beautiful laneways and right amongst it.
The rooms are lovely and clean and having a tv, air conditioning and big soft towels is very luxurious after coming from safari!
We would happily stay at Maru Maru again if back in Stone Town, my only notes would be that it is reasonably noisy - you can hear the staff and other guests moving about in the hallways outside your room. It didnt bother us but might bother some. Also when checking out we were told that the eftpos was down and we would have to pay cash. Luckily there is an ATM nearby, but often that is out of order too we found, so maybe try and have cash when checking out, just in case!
