The Seyyida Hotel and Spa
Great location and close to all attractions ”
Vicinity to beach and walkable distance to slave market and restaurants
Love the place and breakfast. The manager was nice.”
Didnt like the massage otherwise, everthing was good
Overall alright but can use improvements ”
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.
Excellent location. Friendly staff. Fantastic food!
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.
Central to Stone Town”
Location is near port. Entrance is ok except no air when hot. Rooms clean and functional. Rooftops restaurant very nice. Staff great.
Not what we expected”
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.
Very nice breakfast ”
Everything was really great
loved this place, clean and central”
would go back to this hotel
Fantastic location with beautiful views in clean”
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!
Love this hotel”
Beautiful people and beautiful service. Thank you.
2 night stay”
Nice find. Will come back ”
Overall great place. A touch overpriced but will come back for sure
Gorgeous boutique hotel in Stone Town”
Perfect location for Stone Town. You can easily walk a couple of minutes to the buzzing sea front one way or the alleyways of Stone town the other way. The rooms are lively with an enormous comfy bed and well equipped. The lounge and breakfast terrace has a great view to the sea and the staff are delightful.
Gem of a hide-away”
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.
Great location, beautiful rooftop terrace. ”
Great stay, view of stow town is amazing from the rooftop. It's a small boutique hotel and was not great value for money... But it is lovely ... Just expensive
Very comfortable, centrally located.”
