We enjoyed very much our stayment at Jafferji House. The historic building/ rooms give a very special feeling. The staff is very kind and helpfull (especially) the manager Rosemary. The room was always cleaned very well and the quality of the food (breakfast-dinner) is very good. This hotel is perfect to stay during a city trip of Stone Town.

You are right in the centre of Stone Town here and yet only a stone’s throw from the sea. The whole hotel is wonderfully atmospheric with rich colours and a great selection of Javed’s photography and Tanzanian artefacts. We were lucky to have the Princess Salme suite which we adored and was beautifully appointed and had everything we needed. The rooftop terrace here although small compared to others has one of the best views looking out over the old fort to the sea and the islands. Magical. Great staff and food round off the picture for this great value gem of a hotel.
