Great B&B in the heart of Stone Town, and eating breakfast in their outdoor cafe every morning was lovely. Breakfast quality was excellent and diverse, and the rooms were spacious and clean with a very robust satellite TV subscription and powerful A/C. Service was top notch. Our group left very satisfied. I would stay here again in a heartbeat next...

I stay here every year en route to my favourite dive spot of Pemba. Stone town cafe is absolutely perfect. It's a 6 room Zanzibari house with the best cafe in Zanzibar attached. It's owned and managed by an Australian Lady called Judy and her Zanzibar husband Massoud. I've stayed so often and chatted to them often- and teeny are...

A pot of coffee enough for two is still a great choice when in this cafe. It is hot and maybe a bit crowded inside, and outside can be a bit too hot during the day, but generally it is very pleasant and the service is nice.

The food was fresh and delicious and a big step up from most of the mainland eateries. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the AC worked well. It is located a two minute walk from...

We only went for a late morning snack when we first arrived, it was easy to find and pleasant staff - we loved the coffee in their unique pots and we had heavenly pancakes with banana :) The avocado toast was also delicious.

The location is right in the middle of stone town. It's easy to walk to everything. The room was spacious with zanzibari theme furnitures. Our room had a balcony that look over the main street. The staff were friendly and helpful, they remember my husband's name and smile everytime we saw them. Breakfast option were fairly limited but the food...

This lovely little B&B is set right in the middle of Stone Town. From here you can walk to any part of town or just explore the labyrinth of streets that make up Stone Town. We had to leave the hotel very early in the morning and Joy organised a take away breakfast for us the evening before. The staff...
