Emerson rooftop has the best view of Stone Town and the ocean. It has an Arabic style, and you will have to take off your shoes and sit on pillows at the floor. Friendly and beautifully dressed staff. Perfect to relax, enjoy a nice cocktail or food and enjoy the sunset.
hi guys actually Emerson is one of the historic buildings in Zanzibar island and this hotel deserves more than 5 star hotel becouse it's amazing, awesome and so beautiful hotel i ever been in Zanzibar island. Welcome Guys this is the right place to sleep without any problems and actually you will feel like you're home.
Good location and quite easy to find. Breakfast great (Tea/coffee, great fruits, (french)toast & pancakes with butter and jam)... variable breakfast but always fresh foodstuff and good taste! We had also dinner in rooftop terrace - great Experience too. There is nothing to complain about staff and rooms. Staff is friendly, kind and very helpfull. When you'll arrive they let you know everything... and even more👍. We got AC + Fan topfloor room, Wi-Fi ok. Room was big enough, clean and comfortable. Roomcleaning every day. Hotel is VERY unique and atmosphere is historical, nice and peacefull. Design is very inspiring and just awesome Premium class service and attitude👍 Absolutely worth for the money, If you are looking unique, clean, peacefull accomodation in middle of stonetown. Everything is inside walking distance. We were not bothered by this, but the hotel has many steep stairs but no elevator, so getting around the hotel for disabled people is really challenging - just for the info! …
It's one of the hotel in Zanzibar where it's original structures are still exits. Zanzibarian style and local culture still exits. The hotelier are having stunning Arabian clothes that's one of the attraction too. Wide rooms with beautiful furnitures, plus stunning stone Stone Town streets views. And it has roof top to have amazing Sunset.
We booked a table for 4 and were asked to arrive around 6pm (as we were staying elsewhere) to enjoy the sunset from the roof terrace and also so that we would be there for when service started at 7pm. This all sounded great as did the traditional music that accompanied the dinner. We were hoping for a relaxed dinner with stunning views and background music. What we got was a reasonable dinner, stunning views but not exactly background music. The thing that really ruined the evening for us was when the singer walked around collecting money and the waiter shouted down the stairs after us to not forget to write a TA review. We had hoped for an experience that matched the upmarket price and in all honesty the money would have been better spent on another roof top!
