I stayed at the House of Spices in Zanzibar and I loved it. It was an extremely good choice! The location is perfect, in the middle of Stone Town and close to the local food market. You can experience the labyrinth of small streets and sounds, smells, and colors of daily life in Zanzibar, when you leave the House of Spices. Nevertheless, when you are inside the B&B, it is peaceful and you can enjoy the beautiful bar on the terrace and amazing fusion food at the restaurant on another terrace. If you like pizza, there is even an oven where they bake real Italian pizza... the best in Zanzibar.
The rooms are very elegant and furnished with taste ... African and Moroccan style with lively colors. They have all the comforts, even beautiful silk sleepers and nightgowns for all the guests. Everything is very clean and it shows a strong attention to detail.
On the first floor there is a picturesque and beautiful spice shop and a tea room where you can taste different kinds of tea and delicious pastries on a sunny afternoon.
The owners, Anna and Cesare, are extremely nice and welcoming! They make you feel at home and can help you even organize tours of the city and fieldtrips everywhere around Zanzibar, starting from the interesting "Spice Tour".
The House of Spices and the people that work there are an important element to enjoy ZanzIbar to the fullest and create in you the wish to stay in Zanzibar longer than expected.
