Good combination of period charm and airconditioned accommodation. The hotel fronts on to the ocean and also in Stone Town itself, so you can readily choose between the hustle of one of Zanzibar's main tourist attractions and the relative calm of the sea side. The double room was of a good size, with mosquito nets and a spacious shower, where both hot and cold water worked as required. Helpful and polite staff. Enjoyable meal and plenty of opportunities in the vicinity to eat elsewhere.
