This is a lovely hotel. It speaks volumes when a hotel and its staff get all the small things right...and the Zanzibar Palace Hotel manages this with aplomb.
It's a beautifully and carefully restored building, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and well appointed. Most importantly, the staff are polite, helpful and remarkably friendly - there seemed nothing they couldn't do to help.
The breakfasts are wholesome and tasty. We tried the 'Typical Swahili Dinner' one evening, which was absolutely delicious.
In addition, we arrange a tour through the hotel that was excellent.
Certainly a good choice in Stonetown and, compared to many of the seemingly over-priced hotels in Tanzania and Zanzibar, the Zanzibar Palace Hotel ticks all the boxes.
