Abuso Inn is a Very Nice place to be. Once there, you feel like home. They help you on every need for reasonable prices. Plus the hotel is in a perfect position of the town. The rooms are clean and they serve the classic zanzibar breakfast (eggs, fruits, tea,etc). We already came back Twice and we will do it again.

This is an excellent place to stay while in Stone Town. It is nearby the sea, in a very central position. The quality is absolutely good. It is surrounded by many restaurants and pub, that you can choose every day a different one. I was alone, and with my family and always we were safe and good.

If you don't mind that the hotel is a bit old and needs good refreshment, it could be an option for 1-2 nights if you are staying in Stone town. The location is great, just minutes away from the main shopping street, forotani with street food, and africa hotel for a nice sunset. The staff is nice. The breakfast is... More

Nestled among the higher-end Hyatt, DoubleTree, Tembo House and other hotels is Abuso Inn, an excellent value in an unbeatable location in Stone Town with all major attractions a short walk away. The rooms are large, airy and very nicely appointed, with air conditioning and fan, and some have a marvelous view of the Indian Ocean -- as does the... More

We recently spent two nights at the Abuso Inn in Stone Town, Zanzibar. It was very affordable with clean, simple rooms. We had a sea view. Be careful in the bathroom since there is a step to accommodate the door. If is located next to the five star Hyatt and Serena hotels near the port beach but at a fraction... More

Perfectly centered location in stone town. Rooftop terrace with view onto the sea for breakfast was awesome. Delicious breakfast as well. Clean rooms (except of the ants in the bath room) and unfortunately bad smell. Everything in the room smelled a little 'humid'. Mosquito nets could maybe need some cleaning. Staff was all very kind.

Pleasant traditional Zanzibarian hotel with airy inviting rooms with classic Swahili style beds. Rooftop dining area provided good simple breakfasts and there are many good restaurants... More

Nice good,descent hotel with minimal .staff hospitality is excellent! The services we get is equal to the money we pay. A TV in the room would be an added advantage.

Compared to other hotels in Stonetown, a great value for your money. Beds were very comfortable, air con worked great, hot shower and a breakfast area on the roof deck with view of the harbor. Centrally located for shopping, access to ferry, beach, boats to Prison Island, etc.
