My experience at this hotel was overall very positive, the rooms are just above the one of the coziest restaurant/bars in town , personnel is just very very nice, the spicy coffee and the breakfast choices just perfect. Only disappointment was the room location: despite of having a large airy room it was just above the restaurant, which meant being...

I stayed at Stone Town Cafe for three nights, per the recommendation of a friend who lives in Stone Town. I can't say enough positive things about this place. The staff were warm and friendly. They were attentive without being overbearing. Judi and I messaged before my stay. She was quick to respond and provided helpful information since I had...

We stayed here for 2 nights and it is a little gem. The manger Ali was lovely and looked after us well. The rooms are traditional of Zanzibar and the breakfast is lovely. Definitely a better choice than the chain hotels you can get there. Really reasonable price too.

Best place for Chai and pancakes. Sometimes they have good arabic cuisine (falafel, baba ganoush, etc) but other than that the food isnt mindblowing. Good place to relax and have a little something to eat though. (the spanish omlete and the avocado omelete arent bad either)

We loved this place. Its clean and central to everything you want in stone town. The owners Judy and Massoud were away when we went but their staff really looked after us. The breakfasts were amazing and the food was fresh and good. This is a simple place, it has aircon but its not a 5 star hotel. We loved...

Wonderful central location. Just walk out the door and your exploring adventure begins! Very helpful staff. Their cafe is at front entrance and all day meals. Rooms are very clean and comfortable with antique touches. I especially liked that it is a small hotel.

Spent 2 days and 1 night in Stonetown at the cafe/B+B. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay (wish it could have been longer!). The coffee was exceptionally outstanding! We were centrally located between the beach, slave chambers and great restaurants and shopping. Our rooms were spacious, clean, extremely comfortable and most importantly air conditioned! Hot showers were a treat following 2 months...

We did not stay here, but we did go twice for breakfast. Good value breakfast, with quick service and really nice coffee. Good spot to watch the world go by. My daughter loved the banana pancakes and the fresh juice.
