This is a hotel close to the ferry point in Stone Town. It s not too big and it s not necessarily a hostel-like place where you meet dozens of other travelers. It s more a simple hotel with neatly decorated rooms, spacious ( and high ) beds and staff that will accomodate any of your questions. Especially the breakfast...

I flew into Zanzibar in the middle of the night and I was quite nervous about the airport shuttle pickup but my pickup was seamless. The driver was waiting right outside and somehow knew who I was. When I arrived at the hotel ( around 02:30) they were waiting for me and checked me in in less than 5 minutes....

A little tricky to find the place, but the staff offered to have someone meet us at the ferry to help us find our way. The location on Google Maps is correct - it is not along a main road, you have to go down some skinny alleys to find the place! Room was small but cozy and perfect for...

We booked this accommodation based on ratings and reviews, but were super disappointed from the get go. The parking area is quite a hike away and then you have to personally negotiate with a (random) guard to watch your car - at a fee he sees fit based on how much money he thinks he can get from you. When...

Warere, General Manager at Warere Town House, responded to this review

Dear Go_Happy_Festival, From the moment I spoke to you on the phone I knew you would leave us a bad review! We are located in Stone Town and of course parking is always an issue in any city in the world. I do not think your problems with the parking guard are in any way our responsability and should not...

I've stayed at over 15 hotels in different parts of Zanzibar. None of them compare with Warere when it comes to character and value for money. It's quite small and has a rustic feel but with the basics that you need. After much experimentation, I will be staying here every time I'm in Stone Town. It's also 10-15 minutes walking...

My adult son and I recently stayed at Warere Guest House for 3 nights. We found the location to be perfect (in Stone Town, about 3-4 blocks from the main historic section and 1 block from the ferry). We also found the accommodations charming and perfect for us. We chose a large family room that had AC and an ensuite...

I stayed for just two nights but the service and reception were amazing. They planned a beautiful tour of Prison Island for me and even though I arrived very early in the morning, they had a taxi waiting for me at the airport and organised a taxi for my return. The room was air conditioned and the shower was hot!...

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights. We arrived at 2am with someone picking us up from the airport . The room was spacious and airy with fan and air conditioning which was needed as Stone Town was very hot . Did a couple of tours with a guide which was organized by the hotel. The city tour is...

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...
