    Just Right!”
    To start the Al Minar is in the perfect location in Stone Town, just minutes walk to the coast/beach and the Forodhani Gardens which is a great place for an evening snack. The hotel itself is well maintained with very comfortable rooms and topped off with an excellent breakfast. If you stay there do have fun walking through the narrow back streets that take you deeper into Stone Town. You’ll find restaurants, places to shop, and be able to test your sense of direction. I have to add, it’s about a 10min walk to Lukemann Restaurant, believe the hype, it’s the real deal!

    Helpful staff, nice location”
    We enjoy our stay at Al Minar. Staff are helpful with our needs & questions. We spent most of our days outside & the room is comfortable enough for sleep, but we had hot water problem in the shower on our last day. Breakfast is decent, I like the fresh juice & fruits provided. Strategic location, however some of the surrounding alleys do not have proper lightings, so even though Stone Town is considerably safe, better to avoid dark alleys & take longer walking route during the evening. Wifi worked very well, limited selection of channels on TV but we don't watch TV anyway.

    Staff, Location, Neat
    Stayed for 6 nights. The staff were very kind attended to us round the clock. We got sound advice on places to visit. You access any part of stone within 5 min from this hotel. The location is boss. The only minus was the wifi. Not available in the room, had to get out of the room to surf. We were promised it would be rectified but this never happened. Overall: Pleasant stay

    only the location
    We are residents in Tanzania, having visited many times before.Because of the African music festival, our usual hotel was booked out. the room on the ground floor was dark and smelling mouldy. Because the window gave onto an alleyway, we could not air the room, and had to keep the curtains pulled most of the day.When we asked to change to another room on the upper floors on the 2nd day, the recepionist said the rooms were all the same, and all booked out. Our request to change into a room that was being cleaned for a new customer (first come fist serve system) was answered only that it is not possible because they were booked ( again first come first serve, we also wdid not know which room we were getting when we booked!) According to our booking we booked an executive room which this one clearly wasn t. There are better deals and nicer places to be found in Stonetown.

    Staff is superb. The Manager helped me fix a problem with my phone card. They took my phone and personally delivered it to a cellular company for fixing it. The rest of staff was equally polite and helpful. Great location close to main tourist attractions and shopping areas of Stone Town. Good breakfast. Recommended.
