The hotel is located in the heart of Stone Town and we stayed at the Seyyida Hotel for one night at the end of our honeymoon in September 2011.
Our flight from Zanzibar to Dar Es Salaam was early in the morning so we needed a one night stay before that.
The hotel is excellent for what we needed and we wished we had stayed longer to explore Stone Town a bit more.
Very good service from the staff and a nice big room with a comfy bed.
Good wi-fi was available and we ate at the roof top restaurant, which can be highly recommended.
Also gave us a nice takeaway breakfast as we were leaving so early in the morning.
We did our tourist shopping in Stone Town and was a great chance to pick up some amazing hand painted pictures for a bargain price.
Did have a slight issue when our pre-booked taxi didn't arrive exactly on time at 5am in the morning but that was soon dealt with and I think it got lost in translation somewhere.
We got the flight on time, so no worries from that point of view.
Also a quick mention to recommend Nick at 'thetanzaniaspecialists.net'
Our honeymoon was obviously the best holiday we'll ever have and Nick was excellent in producing the trip of a lifetime. including the safari in Selous, our stay at Stone Town and an amazing stay at Kilindi on Zanzibar.
He got us some incredible deals, saving us a fortune and helped us when the flights got mixed up at 3am GMT.
I cannot recommend Nick highly enough and many thanks for helping to organise our amazing honeymoon.
