I truly wanted to give this an Excellent rating, but somehow it just misses the mark...but not by much. The room was wonderful and the view outstanding. It is a small boutique hotel with lots of character and stairs. Everything was just that fine. The hotel just lacks the finess and service to be given an excellent rating.
The dinner we had was TREMENDOUS and oh so good. We ended up having a Swahli traditional dinner, which I would highly recommend.
The location was also spot on, in the heart of Stone Town and in good walking distance to all important sites.
Maybe the main trouble was being on Safari, on our own, for 8 days and then to be thrown into the hustle and bustle of a busy city.
