The Jafferji House is the perfect example of a small hotel that is not great only because it is comfortable, offer great services, pleasant, beautiful, cool etc. but also harmonically and tastefully reflects the atmosphere of the city in which it exists. The minute we entered the hotel lobby, we felt we are in a special place. Stunning interior, breathtaking, traditional design. Every detail of the place is carefully looked after in every single corner. We were lucky to get upgraded to a suite which was even more stunning. It really looked like if it was somewhere in a sultan’s palace. Moreover, the staff was also exceptionally helpful, kind and friendly so the whole experience made us really feel if we were some kinds of royals. The place was so beautiful and pleasant, that we were keener to explore the rest of the hotel first, before we went out to see Stone Town itself.
The location of the hotel is also excellent. The Gizenga Street is arguably one of the most interesting of all the narrow alleyways of the city. It is full of nice little shops, and only a couple of minutes walk from the House of Wonders, the catholic church and the old fortress.
My only advice to the hotel management would be to do something with sound insulation, as the rooms can be a bit noisy till 11pm from the lively Gizenga Street.More
