A wonderful hotel in a great location with a bathroom that offers a spectacular view over the town. A true loo with a view! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it made for a great first night in Stone Town.

This hotel was the perfect romantic getaway for my BF and me. We stayed in the room with the rooftop open-air bathroom. The almost 360-degree view of the city and ocean were breathtaking. The hotel arranged tours for us during our stay, and everything was well taken care of. The breakfasts were delicious. I still dream of the coffee.

Imagine Africa booked this hotel for us for our Honeymoon and I must say, it was exactly what we needed. The location is great, only a short walk to the coast, and the staff were superb (especially Susan). All questions and requests were solved quickly and with no hassle. We had the Dunia suite booked and it was amazing -... More

Hotel was great, rooms had air con and was roomy and luxurious. Not able to fault the hotel. Arriving in Zanzibar and travelling to the hotel so late at night wasn't nice, felt vulnerable and uneasy. Won't be visiting again.

My friend and I spent 3 nights here this past June. We arrived fresh from the peace and solitude of the Serengeti to the hustle and bustle of late afternoon Stone Town. In spite of being well-traveled we experience a certain amount of culture shock and weren't sure we were going to enjoy being here. The steps to our suite... More
