We have just returned a few days ago after a 4 week trip to Africa and have stayed in a variety of hotels. Zanzibar Palace Hotel is a boutique hotel very efficiently run by two very pleasant gentlemen,Mark and Robert. The service here is personal and caring. The supporting staff are also very friendly and efficient.
While the hotel is a throwback to the past with decor and artefacts reflecting the oldtimes,the amenities are modern with aircond rooms and hotwater system that works. Free wifi in the room is a bonus.
Cooked breakfast in the morning is very good and the restaurant where we had seafood was excellent. We were served afternoon tea with cakes in the room.
Locationwise, it's right in Stone Town but is only a 5 mins walk to the seafront.Another bonus was the good value if you need your laundry to be done.
Highly recommended, excellent personal service all round and two managers on the ball.
