Great location for exploring Stone town. A fabulous hotel with air on and lots of original features that make this unique hotel a joy to stay in. The downstairs coffee shop is well frequented but the private breakfast area on the roof top is superb and a wonderful place to start your day. A charming place to stay, lovely friendly staff, clean and amazing decor in the rooms in keeping with the style of stone town.

Room Tip: I think the back rooms may be a little quieter.

We stayed only one night in this hotel and it's a true regret! Next time in Zanzibar we want to stay one week there!
Located inside the old city, be prepared to carry your luggage for 150 meters, as the cab cant drive there.
The hotel is very well integrated in a modest street, but once you enter, it's a rare find! Charming and laidback atmosphere, friendly staff, india meets Marocco meets Iran interior design... You feel being the guest of a very bohemian sultan, or Hemingway!
We had the Capuccino Suite for the night: Nice antic furniture, soft glazy and colorful concrete, little stairs to go in the bathroom, antic details all around...Really romantic! and cozy bed!
The wall are VERY thick, so no noise from the hotel, but there is a school next door, and you can forget sleeping late!
The coffee is of course close to prefection, so are the biscuits and cake.
Also,the breakfast in the roof top is magical ( and again, food and drinks are delicious).
Its also a convenient adress, as you are near good restaurants ( they don't serve diner), near the market and near the shops. Barclays bank is across the main street, 10 minutes walk.

To conclude, a perfect stay for BoBo ( bourgeois-bohemes), 30 something, thriftshop lovers.
This place has charisma!

We stayd two nights in this unique "petite hotel" in the middle of Stone Town. Room was good and clean considering local standards. Bathroom at the corridor was not so nice experience, but for two nights it was ok... Think they also have rooms with own bathroom. There was a nice cafe downstairs with good coffee and cakes. They roasted their own coffee there, so it was certainly fresh. The location of this hotel was in the middle of narrow streets of Stone Town. We thought it would be better to stay at the hotel, when it become dark... There was a nice patio upstairs where you could relax and see the town.
