Quick spot to visit, but underwhelming
Feb 2020
The entrance fee is low (5000 TSH, I believe) but does not include a guide. There were a few signs to explain the purpose of the room or what occurred there but not much else. We were a little disappointed as we wanted to know more but there was no one to ask. The self tour takes approximately 5-10 minutes.

If you're interested in architecture it's a great place to visit and make sure you don't miss going up on the roof.

Hamamni Persian baths - not much to see
Aug 2019
There is really not much to see in these baths. I thought it would be more interesting, but it took me about 5 minutes to walk through. There is no explanation and nobody to tell you anything about it.

This is not worth going to see in my opinion. There are plenty more interesting places to visit

Old Persian Baths

As other people that inside there is almost nothing we had a look around and saw just the first room where you buy the ticket.
Inside we could see some white walls and some decorations.

I wanted to see this place since I come to Stone Town regularly. There’s really not that much to see and little explanation. There was no guide when I came there and it cost me 5000 TZS. Took me about 5 minutes to walk around.

Your imagination is needed in buckets. There is very little description of what it is and was. A waster opportunity.

Worth a look

An interesting part of Zanzibar's history. Cheap to get in, and the staff provide an informative tour lasting 20mins or so. Best part is heading up to the roof where the Sultan used to come to watch the sunset. Not stunning but would have been a shame to miss it.

We did a town tour when we were in Zanzibar which included the Hamamni Persian Baths. Its definitely interesting to see this old historical building and check out the baths and roof top.

The Hamamni Persian baths is an interesting place to stop by, makes for an interesting short tour. There is a guide to take you round, I found it a fascinating piece of architecture from the old days, must have been a jewel in its days!

Interesting but not much to see
Jan 2019 • Friends
The baths are tucked away amongst the alley ways of stone Town. A small entrance fee is payable and you can opt for a guide if you wish. The complex is a series of rooms, namely where the baths, toilets were etc. It offers a good insight into the structure of a Persian bath, however there is hardly any intricate artwork/detailing to see. The whole complex can be seen easily in less than 20 minutes.

Worth a look if of interest but not unmissable.
