“Simple but clean with friendly staff & excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We stayed here a few days in early Feb. 2013. I had actually made a mistake and booked a room using Kayak.com for the same dates in January, which we hadn't noticed until we checked in. Luckily the hotel was not full so we got a room anyway and weren't charged any more (as the hotel had gotten its money anyway). I really appreciated the manager for just waving this off. Room was basic but spacious with a nice bed and great mosquito net. Breakfast simple but included excellent fruits (passion fruit, mangoes, papaya). And the location was excellent.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

The Pearl of Zanzibar is a safe and friendly place to stay. The hotel is beautiful and clean, the rooms are pretty. The staff is helpful and kind. Also fast and efficient. Breakfast is simple and delecious with lots of fresh fruit, eggs made to order, local specialities. One waiter remembered which jam I like and brought the jar to my table. The night I arrived on January 6, 2013, there was no power for 8 hours, I was given flashlights. One can sit on the entrance stoop and chat with the staff or people who pass by. The Pearl of Zanzibar is a pleasant place to stay. I travel alone and felt perfectly safe and well taken care of.
