We had no reservations at Maru Maru, and were looking to spend one night in Stonetown before heading back to the states. Maru Maru turned out to be one of the best places we stayed during our three weeks in Africa, except for the fantastic tented camps in the Serengeti. First, the air conditioning worked well and was on all night. The water worked. The beds were comfortable, and there were no cockroaches! Yea! The best part of the hotel was the restaurant on the roof. It served some of the best food we had on the entire trip. Overall, the hotel was a bit expensive for what we were used to, but the value was decent.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in the heart of the UNESCO world heritage site of StoneTown, Maru Maru Hotel is just a few steps from the city’s historical wonders, colourful markets and labyrinth of shops. Once a town house famous for its marble floors and tiles, it has now been lovingly restored to offer 44 bright rooms blending classic Zanzibar style with iconic design and modern luxuries. Its roof terrace offers one of the best views in the city with a 360° panorama and is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail as the sun melts into the Indian Ocean. The relaxed ambiance at Maru Maru continues long into the night as people come to enjoy a vast variety of Continental, Chinese Indian and Swahili cuisine, view art in Maru Maru’s gallery and enjoy the captivating sound of Tahareb music as it floats into the night. ... more less
