    We stayed in a private bedroom with a shared bathroom, and both are kept very clean. Location is very convenient, night market and Anglican Church (ex slave market) is a walking distance. Stuff were very nice and welcoming.

    The building is like Chinese style with wooden facilities inside the room. The roof top breakfast place is excellent to enjoy the breakfast. Room is a bit dark overall and with wood smell.

    The internet was very very weak. It was basically only available within 5 meters of the front desk.

    Very helpful staff, including arranging an excellent historic tour. Prompt and reasonably priced laundry service. AC worked well. We enjoyed the balcony but it does get noisy early being on the main road to the port. Choose a back room if that bothers you.

    Great hotel

    First impressions are a bit off putting because the hotels located on a Main Street however this hotel is in a great location within walking distance of stone town and all its high lights. We couldn’t have had a nicer welcome. The team here are top class. The rooms are individual. Ours was taste of culture on the second floor. It had an outside balcony and the bed was comfortable. The room was very clean. The bathroom was located across the corridor but was for our use only. Breakfast was on the rooftop restaurant. The cappuccino and the homemade bread were really good. Just 10 minutes walk away was the house of wonders and old stone town. Mercury’s bar named after the late great Freddie was a short walk from the hotel. You can get boat trips from the harbour next to the bar. The hotel were very helpful in providing directions and recommendations.

    We stayed one night at this cosy hotel before taking the ferry to Dar es Salaam the day after. The hotel has a perfect location if you’re planning to take the ferry as it’s only a short walking distance away. The rooms were nice and the food and service was excellent!
