The staff was very nice and accommodating. Rooms on the smaller side. Bathroom could use a facelift. Shower was warm since I remembered to turn on the hot water heater. The only off putting thing was one of the water glasses had some dried black matter in the bottom. This is why I always throw in a acrylic wine glass... More

Simple but very clean comfortable rooms. The rooftop cafe is a nice place to relax at sunset and the location is great. All the staff was very helpful and friendly. We only stayed one night but would happily have stayed longer.

The best thing about this place is the location. It is central, and easy walking distance to the ferry and all of Stone Town. The local staff were friendly, though a few of them had difficulty communicating in English. Breakfast was bland but consisted of the usual fruit, bread, instant coffee eggs, and margarine. The rooms themselves are comfortable, but... More

This was my second visit to the Clove, and it is now under new management. They have made some very nice changes and it is an even better place to stay. The new manager is extremely helpful and replied to all my e-mails, the staff are wonderful (some of them were there before and it was lovely to see them... More

This is a super find. Perfect location to the markets, warf area and winding alleyways. The staff are friendly and will go out of your way to book taxis and tours. We did however find we could get cheaper by negotiating ourselves. The rooms with a balcony are the best as they are brighter than those toward the back of... More

Located in Stonetown in walking distance from all the restaurants and the ferry port it offers nice rooms and a roof terrace. Prices are a bit high for what to expect but the staff is kind. Wifi is available.

Lovely, recently renovated hotel decorated with traditional Zanzibari furniture and local crafts. Rooms are spotless and very comfortable, though the one I was in lacked storage space. Breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace, with a view of Stonetown's meandering streets and the sea. The location is amazing, just a stone throw away from from the old Arab fort and... More

Laurence and her husband, new management, have renovated and planning a great menu. The terrase has an ocean view. They are one of the few places you can have a nice cold serengeti beer and after a hot day walking and touring its a godse d. The rooms are clean, new fans and they will be planning a room with...

We have been in the Clove a couple of times and we love the atmospheric location in the old town at the beginning of Hurumzi Street, just behind the House of Wonders and close to Forodhani Gardens. To our surprise the hotel was taken over by a very welcoming French couple. They did a makeover of the whole place, new... More
