Warere Town House is an excellent and very reasonably priced hotel in Stone Town. It is close to the ferry port (3 minutes) and the heart of Stone Town (10-15 minutes). We were welcomed by very friendly staff members who assisted us with whatever we needed through out our stay. We happened to be there when the entire town experienced...

Nice cosy place, great location within stone town easy access for sight seeing. Staff are warm and welcoming and very polite; we didn't know that you need to place your dinner orders by 3:30pm(should have been mentioned to us when dropping off our luggage) but the chef accepted our late request and the food was great! Rooms are a bit...

The staff were very welcoming and attentive. The upstairs room was smaller than expected and the balcony is off the small ensuite. The great beds filled the room. The best part is the roof top restaurant where they serve breakfast. Location is quite good, we took a walking tour from the Hotel that worked out really well.

No need to take a Taxi, just take a short walk. We were welcomed with a cold drink including ginger and lime which was nice after two hours ferry travelling from Dar er Salam. The Staff is kind and friendly, they will help and guide you. Ask them if you have any guestions or need for taxi. Or if you...

Very nice small traditional type hotel with modern comfort. I liked the roof top terrace looking over the buildings and on the ocean. Good location, nice staff, attention to detail, balcony very nice. Good value for money.

I booked a room at the Warere Town House for my first night in Stone Town. They had a free pickup from the airport, and were extremely understanding after flight delays meant getting to the airport hours after I indicated I would. Got to the hotel, which is on the interior and not on the main street across from the...

My fiance and I stayed here for a week in June 2015, while we were in Zanzibar so I could take a swahili course at the State University of Zanzibar (SUZA). We were looking for an apartment to stay for two months and the staff (Chichi especially!) were absolutely incredible. Chichi helped us find an apartment just around the corner....

I stayed here for 2 nights, I like this guesthouse quite a lot because of their friendly and helpful staff, 5-10mins walk from the port and main street (it is hidden inside some buildings which may probably difficult to find for the first time), nice decorations. You can ask them to arrange airport transfer and even tours. Value for money.

Warere is a nice place to stay and an excellent value. Rooms are tiny, but good- had a fan, A/C, and private bathroom. Staff was welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is good, but not a lot of options. Our biggest frustration was parking. Warere advertises that there is parking available and no need for pre-arrangement, but that's lie. We rented a...
