The rooms are simple but excellent for low budget travelers. The manager was very nice and helped us with every thing we needed. Nice breakfast and wifi. The diving company that close to the hotel is very good. We had a great time in here!

Nungwi is just beautiful but I fear that the Inn is resting on its laurels. The staff were great and very helpful but I reckon with a few touches this hotel could be very deserving of its place in paradise. Rooms were grand and just for sleeping in, food was lovely, cocktails great but really more could be done with... More

I'm really surprised about the bad reviews. It's located right on the beach. The room itself is ok, clean, big bed, bathrooms are ok. Nice food (reasonable priced for a hotel). Rates (for a single room) are ok. If coming back to Nungwi I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for 3 days, left to visit another part of the island but decided to come back for another 2! The location is absolutely superb!! We managed to get the price down quite a lot but we were there during low season. Zanzibar is not a cheap place hotelwise so this was pretty good for the location and the... More

The title says it all.

After visiting different hotels we decided to book this one because of the wifi... More

My friends and I stayed at Nungwi Inn for 3 nights after a trip in Stonetown and the south of the island. We are used to sleeping in simple hotels and hostels but Nungwi Inn was very disappointing. We picked Nungwi Inn after having seen a few other places to compare what was available. It seemed like Nungwi Inn had... More

He had 28 people in our group and Nungwi Inn met our needs. It is well located on the beach with several dining choices in the area. Rooms were clean, but the bathrooms need some work. The bathroom tap did not work well and the shower is almost certainly sitting on mold since water flows freely under if through the... More

We stayed here as part of a tour so am not sure how expensive it is.   The bungalows are basic but have air conditioning, comfortable beds, hot powerful showers and are fairly clean.  Staff were friendly and were keen to ensure that our room was a double as opposed to a twin four poster bed and put the beds...

This is a decent budget accommodation right on the beach. We stayed there with our then 2 year old daughter. She loved the beach in front of the hotel because she could wade out into the water quite a ways when the tide was out. We enjoyed the local activity in the afternoons on the beach (pick-up football games). The... More
