We walked to the site and there was a women at the entrance of the baths. A student came over and gave us a nice tour. He showed us the different rooms and explained them well (the changing room, waiting room, bathrooms, hot and cool baths, rooftop, and where the fire would be started). It cost $5 each and was worth the visit.

These baths in a quiet part of town are nicely restored and give you a good idea of what they would have looked like in years past. The mannequins could use some updating (or removal) but the overall experience is good

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.

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

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.

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.
