Maru Maru is a lovely hotel centrally located in the nicer end of Stone Town. Everything you would want to see is no more than a 10 minute walk away. The room was a reasonable size, with a good size wardrobe and a decent desk. Attached is a large bathroom. The TV channels were a bit limited, but then, you don't travel here for the TV. The wifi was quick and reliable. The breakfast was pretty decent, with a selection of pastries, fruits, toast, coffee and a small range of cooked items. Staff were friendly and efficient. Check in and check out took very little time. Would stay there again if I was in Zanzibar.
