          Many better hotels available ”

          We paid 52 USD per night during our nine night stay. We did not consider this property to provide good value for the money. The wifi was so weak at times, we had to leave the hotel and find reliable wifi elsewere. Some of the hotel employees seemed to be enjoying using the hotel wifi. This no doubt contributed to some of the we encountered with the wifi. It is sad when paying guests are placed in a position of having to compete with employees for bandwidth. Power failed on a number of occasions during our stay, unlike a number of other hotels in Stone Town, this property does not have an emergency generator. On the positive side the hotel is centrally located to several of the major tourist sites. The manager is friendly and appears to be responsive to the guest's concerns. The property is in need of maintenance, the elevator for example has been out of service for several months due to a lack of parts. These shortcomings is why we titled our review in the manner we did.

          worth it to try”

          In January, I spent a night in this hotel with my family (wife + child). We enjoyed our stay before we left to the Airport. Staff was nice, helpful. Breakfast simple but tasty. As usual fresh fruits, pancake, tea.. we love it. Location also very good. Easy to reach all the important part of the city. At night we had problem with the AC, did not work properly. It was hot in the room. After we reported the problem to the reception, they tried to repair it without success. BUT - positive - we were offered to move to another room.

          My face and heart lit up when we walked in to Asmini Palace. This was the first place we stayed at in Zanzibar and we fell in love. Greeted with a cold juice and big smiles. We were treated so well by helpful and friendly staff, and we enjoyed every minute of being there. The room was clean and very special. We loved our dinner and breakfast on the roof top restaurant. The view was awesome and the hotel was easy to find and located down a little road that made us feel a part of Stone Town. We loved it all.

          This is a nice little hotel in a great convenient location off of the main road. We were looking for a nice clean place to stay after a week in the North. The staff are AMAZING and it was nice for our very short stay however if we had planned to be in Stonetown for longer than two nights I would have wanted something a bit nicer. It was good for what we paid.

          Disappointing”

          Friendly staff, quiet and conveniently located for local sightseing.

          The hotel was advertised as providing free wireless internet but this was available only in the reception area, which was hot and uncomfortable. The satellite TV service in the hotel was intermittent with individual channels frequently dropping out. When a local power cut occurred it took a long time for "the generator man" to be located and to restore the power. Breakfasts were mediocre with the impression that the main focus of the hotel was to minimize their costs.
