We really enjoyed our short stay in Stonetown (after the initial culture shock!) and were very pleased with our choice of hotel.
We loved our 'Arabica' suite, even though we feel we did not spend enough time in it to do it justice! We only had a day and a half in Stonetown and so many things to see... The room was brilliantly decorated in the antic Arabian style, but with all the modern comfort, including aircon - a haven after walking around the city under a scorching sun.
The hotel is well located, but as we found out, nothing is ever far in Stonetown, it is just a question of finding your way around (no street name signs anywhere, so very easy to get lost at first!)
Owners and staff were very pleasant and efficient. The hotel is full of character and takes you back to the days of the Sultans, with wifi, flat-screen TVs and DVD players as a bonus! ;-)
We could have happily stayed a few days longer...
