          Best views in the city”
          This is our second time staying at The Swahili House. An impressive old building with spacious, comfortable rooms, beautiful decor and rustic style. The rooftop bar offers some of the best views of the city, with a delicious food and drinks menu. There is also a small pool on the rooftop which is perfect for cooling off and relaxing. The hotel is conveniently located right in the center of old Stone Town, in walking distance to all the best locations and points of interest. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

          View, character and airy
          Very atmospheric hotel, well situated for all the sights, very steep stairs - the staff say it is training for climbing Kili. Lovely roof top bar, shame it doesn't have wifi. The wifi is good but only in the reception area. Went to the Mtoni Palace on a Friday evening for the music and dance event which was very good.

          Vackert hotell men ej hjälpsam personal”
          Centralt läge i Stonetown, rooftop-bar, gratis wifi (men bara vid lobbyn).
          Hotellet är ett vackert men slitet gammalt köpmannahus. Rummen är stora, och alla verkar vara olika. Myggnät finns, dock trasiga. Badrummen är oftast inte avgränsade med väggar/dörrar, så inget för den blyge. I vårt rum hade badrumsdörren (fanns dörr men inte vägg upp till taket) inget handtag på insidan så man fick klättra in i rummet igen via en fönsterlucka. Vi bodde högst upp, vilken gav en vacker utsikt, men det är riktigt höga trappsteg i de gamla trapporna, så inget för människor med någon form av handikapp. Personalen drog ned intrycket av hotellet, på grund av ouppmärksamhet, långsam service samt ovilja att ge växel tillbaka ens om man bad om det. Vi åkte på en tur till Prison Island via hotellet för 44 dollar per person, vilken vara av exakt samma kvalitet som vilken papasi som helst skulle ha givit oss för halva priset.
