Absolutely nothing worth seeing...please don't waste your time visiting this place. At the end of the tour, all we asked ourselves was- " is that it?" I was disappointed. Dirty, unpleasant place

This is really worth the visit! It doesn't look like much from the outside but inside you will find a will preserved and lovely bathhouse. Right across from Zanzibar Cultural Arts Centre--which is definitely worth a visit as well.

As someone who has been to bathhouses all over the Islamic world, this one was very disappointing. The guide did do a good job of explaining it. But the building has so badly been neglected that it has lost all it's charm

It was nice to learn a little about the history of the Zanzibari upper-class. However, the entire attraction is a series of white-washed rooms with hole around the place that once held water. Visiting the roof was nice.

No biggie, it was fine, but we thought more of it since it looked more interesting from the outside. Think we only used 5-10 minutes in there.

For a small fee (even cheaper if paid in TZS) we were shown around this very interesting place in the heart of Stone Town. The guide also showed us the roof of the baths. He invited us to have a look in his shop after the tour but it wasn't a problem when we politely declined.

Honestly, this place is not keep clean and there is so little to see. Bargain for the price of the ticket.
