                Lovely boutique hotel with great rooftop especially for the sunset, nice staff. Massage wasn’t good, they shouldn’t include the name “spa” in the hotel if massages are sub-par. However the lady was nice and provided fantastic tea. The tour guide the hotel lady recommended was also a bit below average, I wasn’t too impressed. But overall a good relaxing place.

                Pro: This hotel is beautiful Con: it is so unbelievably hot. The AC didn’t work in our original room at all. We were moved to a much smaller and more cramped room thereafter where it worked somewhat. But coming off safari and sensitive to heat it was a very big issue for us. Would not stay here, but perhaps would come to their rooftop restaurant for a meal.

                The photos look much better than the actual place. The restaurant is crazy expensive and service was very very slow. It was really difficult to sleep since everything from outside our room could be heard. The staff are friendly but some are slow.

                We stayed with 2 adults and 2 teenagers, and one of the rooms was upgraded to an ocean view. The staff were very helpful in arranging tours for us, at a much better price that we received at any of the tour companies. Breakfast is delicious and there is a beautiful view. It is walking distance from most of the attractions in Stone town!

                Gem of a hide-away”

                rooftop restaurant & lounge, room comfort, location

                Im very glad I discovered this little gem. Stone town has no shortage of charming boutique properties, but the Seyyida was special. Its nestled away near the ferry port and surrounded by interesting ancient fortress-like buildings. It is a bit away from all the tourist shops and touts. When you step out of the hotel front door, you are right in the middle of authentic stone town life. However, the tourists stuff is a short 5 min walk away. The sea-port view view from the roof top restaurant and lounge is great. Breakfast is generous and varied, and the lunch/dinner menu is a bit more sophisticated then other Stone town eateries. Very nice quality food! Do pay a little more and book a seaview terrace room; the others only look out upon a wall. The rooms are so comfortable! The décor is a pleasing mix of traditional east African furnishings mixed with modern, trendy upholstery and touches. The king bed was great, romantic surrounded by mozzie netting. The Air con worked well. there is wifi, but not so good in the rooms. Reception is better up in the restaurant. My only issue was that my room was below the restaurant and they start the breakfast set up at 6 am, so it was very noisy; I wanted to sleep in and enjoy the bed, but each morning I was awoken by the noise upstairs. Unfortunately the spa wasn't functioning while I was there, but you could book an in room massage if you wanted it. There is a small garden courtyard located at the back of the property. I enjoyed my stay, loved the location, and will stay here when next in Zanzibar.
