Mizingani Seafront Hotel is located on the Forodhani water front next to the Sultan Palace Museum and Ferry Terminal. Being in the heart of Stone Town, we are a stone throw away from the main tourist attractions, the Palace Museum, House of Wonders, Old Fort and the famous Forodhani food market. The Mizingani building is a very unique historical building which was constructed for newly married Royal couples for their honeymoon in 1865. Later in 1928 the house was then turned into the Custom House but, due to poor maintenance it deteriorated and finally had to be evacuated. This former Palace is now restored to its former glory with unique pieces of antique furniture, four poster beds, clocks, cupboards and so on, marvelously decorated and designed to make you feel like a Sultan. Mizingani Seafront Hotel provides the best facilities to offer with access of a lift, free wi-fi, air conditioning, 24 hour help desk, safe deposits and a perfect place to relax and tan near the swimming pool in the courtyard. Mizingani now boasts of large individually styled rooms, with ocean front or swimming pool balconies equipped with all modern facilities such as flat screen TV, cable channels, tea/coffee making facilities, hamam bathrooms tiled with Mosaic, hair dryers, high water pressure and hot water. Enjoy the evening cup of tea at our Ocean Front Restaurant while watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean and dine under the sky at night. With environment being in our thoughts and conscious, we are proud to announce that we are the only hotel in Stone Town using solar panels for "Hot Water" usage in the hotel including all of our rooms. Create your own memory for a lifetime at Mizingani Seafront Hotel by experiencing the true Zanzibari Hospitality

Dear Mr David, Thank you for taking your precious time to to review us. We are absolutely delighted to hear that you liked our Theme of the hotel and thank you for the wonderful compliments regarding our hotel and staff. We would like to take this opportunity to apologize for the let downs that you had faced with us. For the insulation problem all the buildings in stone town are under the UNESCO & Stone Town Heritage Conservation and we cant change the building or modernism as its more than 200 years old and has its special beauty (former palace) Our breakfast starts from 0700-1030 everyday and for those leaving before time, we arrange packed takeaway breakfast Lastly for the Lunch and cleanliness we will have a word with our staff. Sorry for the inconvenience as your feedback will help us improve our services , we would be delighted to welcome you back in the near future and show the improvement we have done. Consider Mizingani Seafront Hotel your home away from home! Francine.
