We walked from the ferry terminal to get to the hotel, unfortunately google maps has it in the rewiring place (hint, search for "Asmini Plance" and you'll get there). Anyway, a quick phone...

Nice Hotel right in the middle of Stone Town. Walking distance from the ferry port and most of the other locations in stone town. Rooms were big, nice and clean. Hotel staff were very welcoming specially the day manager/receptionist.
