When visiting Zanzibar stay in Stonetown in the middle of the winding streets and do your beach hotels on the other side of the island. Staying at the beach in Stonetown is a shame, in the middle of the small streets is much more fun and old houses like House of Spices is beautifully decorated and gives you the real Zanzibar feeling. We had the Chilli room which is beautiful and spacious and (after a little bit of bargaining) really fair priced. We run a hotel ourselves in Kenya and this hotel is really good, the only thing is that some of the staff are not as friendly and welcoming as most on Zanzibar but they are only a few of the staff working there.
The restaurant on the roof top gives you really good and home made food for a nice price and their bar is also really good. Definitely worth staying!
