    Dissapointing - Stay there only if you have no other option”

    Advantages 1) Sufficient (very) hot water 2) Very good A/C 3) Friendly personel Disadvantages 1) Not to be trusted 1. Be aware, they have stolen from us 1 action camera, 2 pairs of ear-rings from my wife and some small souvenirs we have bought locally. I suppose that's why they have in the room a big sign saying "hotel does't have any responsibility for lost items". 2) Not to be trusted 2. I asked them to organize some local excursions for us and the price they told us was more than double than the market price. 3) Poor breakfast. included only fruits, pancakes, eggs and bread. Every other day included sausages & cooked beef. 4) Dirty. When we checked in we found dirty (or even worse used???) linen on the bed. Same stands for the towels. 5) Hotel needs serious renovation. There is no sound insulation, nearby nightclub feels like next door. Bottom line: Do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else.

    Awful, dirty hotel and very unpleasant ”

    There is no direct access by taxi ,besides a very loud music lounge, tattoo ,noise from the street until late in the morning hours and early in the morning people start to shout and talk very loud ,we where at the top floor and had noise during the whole night ,they changed the room ,but it was all the same!its dirty and the lights where not working,mosquitos net with wholes and the linen where dirty too !the staff doesn't understand English and it was very difficult to communicate ,no water in the room and we had to go late at night on our own in a dark side street to buy a bottle of water ,terrible service!for breakfast we asked for a second glas of fruit juice and they said we had to pay for it ,we left the hotel one night earlier as we paid for!!! All in all a very unpleasant hotel and we didn't enjoy it at all!! I would not recommend it to anyone !! Horrible simply horrible ...far too expensive for what they offer ! I don't understand the punctuation nor the 4 star for this horrible place

    Location ok, service passable”

    Location in a quiet area of Stone Town, some music can be heard from a nearby disco. The floors were never cleaned while there, and at least when we were there no buffet breakfast. Just toast, eggs and a few sausages. Fresh fruit, though and they make fresh fruit juice (without sugar!) upon request.

    Room, staff, breakfast

    The hotel is in very good condition, I was surprised how nice the room was, it's about 1 km from the ferry, walkable if not too many luggage, taxi 5000 local money. The only thing about it was it is not close to major road, but this can be a good thing.

    Fantastic staff”

    1. The staff could not have been any more friendly than at this hotel. 2. The ambience of the rooftop restaurant combined by the excellent staff and fantastic ocean view especially at sunset

    Our stay was excellent. The rooftop restaurant had a lovely view over the rooftops of the ocean. We watched the sunset with dhow sailing past as we enjoyed out dinner with a cold beer. The room was very spacious and the staff exceedingly friendly.

    Ruidoso y sucio”

    Muy ruidoso y, el colmo es que a partir de las 21h y hasta las 03h se oye muy alta la musica de un club que está al lado. El hotel esta muy obsoleto, las sabanas estaban rotas y sucias, la limpieza no es la mejor y el desayuno es clramente mejorable. Hay opciones mucho mejores por el mismo precio en la misma zona.

    Sapore coloniale”

    Lo stile antico rimodernato, la posizione in centro perfetto per uscire e ritornare senza problemi per una doccie e uscire di nuovo, il silenzio perfetto per riposare bene

    Tranquillo per riprendersi della fatica del viaggio. Riposante, ideale per programmare da qui le prossime tappe. Non c'è l'ascensore, ma non è stato affatto un problema (il bagaglio è stato trasportato). Qualsiasi informazione chiediate al gestore (italiano)vi verrà data con cortesia non invasiva. Ottimo per cominciare a rilassarsi. Ho trovato affascinante l'arredamento in legno scuro su muri, pavimenti e tessuti chiari. Bello.

    Kiva hotelli vanhassakaupungissa”

    Upea vanha talo, hiljainen ja kiva kattoterassi aamiaista varten

    Hotelli sijaitsee sokkeloisten kujien päässä, mutta ei haitannut kun reitin oppi. Upea vanha kunnostettu talo, Ei hissiä, eli ei sovellu liikuntarajoitteiselle eikä suurien matkatavaroiden kanssa (meillä tosin henkilökunta kantoi laukut sekä ylös että alas). Erittäin ystävällinen palvelu.

    Удивительный отель в историческом центре”

    Отель выбирали в последнюю минуту, приехав на пароме на Занзибар. Остались очень довольны номером (верхний этаж), очень хорошим, сытным и вкусным завтраком на крыше отеля. В номере все необходимое. Кондиционер работал отлично. Очень удобная широкая кровать, что очень важно для хорошего отдыха. Хороший душ с горячей водой! При поселении выбирайте верхние этажи, на первом этаже номера не большие и не хватает проветривания. В целом остались довольны. Не сразу нашли отель, так как он немного во дворе, но спросили первого человека и он показал. Очень много антиквара и исторических предметов Занзибар.
