The rooms are relatively small but nice and clean. They have a wonderful rooftop where they serve an excellent breakfast and where you can get drinks from the fridge 24h. It is located a bit off central stone town at a non-touristic area. Everything seems to be save though.

Pros: Great breakfast on nice rooftop terrace, comfortable beds, good mosquito nets, clean, some rooms had closet, some not, greeted with cold, wet towel and cool drink, honor bar worked well. Cons: Location was near the ferry, but not much of anything else. Wi-fi (off and on) worked in some rooms and not in others. Had dinner at their restaurant...

Warere offers basic accommodation for budget travellers. It is just steps away from the port, about 10 mins walk to Forodhani gardens where you can get some street food, and about 5 mins walk to the gathering point for Prison island tour. The staff of Warere are all very friendly and helpful. The town house have a shower room for...

Spend there one night and it was nice. Rooms are a bit dark, but but you spend most of the time outside anyway. The roof terrace with view over the ocean is amazing. Breakfast is simple and good! Try the tasty spiced tea! Great team who help you with questions and problems right away. Also the location is great. You...

Spent only 1 night in this cozy town house, while i was traveling with my sister. Perfect location (super close to the Ferry and super close to the market and vibrant city centre), very nice Staff and lovely atmosphere. We slept in two different rooms (i had the small one, #19 and my sister a larger #17). Both rooms were...

The highlight of my stay in Stone Town was the city tour I booked upon arriving at the Warere Town House. My tour guide's name was Daudi, a very knowledgeable, kind, helpful, and professional guide. Daudi even went above and beyond call of duty and was kind enough to assist me with some particular shopping. The Warere Town House is...

This is a hotel close to the ferry point in Stone Town. It s not too big and it s not necessarily a hostel-like place where you meet dozens of other travelers. It s more a simple hotel with neatly decorated rooms, spacious ( and high ) beds and staff that will accomodate any of your questions. Especially the breakfast...

I flew into Zanzibar in the middle of the night and I was quite nervous about the airport shuttle pickup but my pickup was seamless. The driver was waiting right outside and somehow knew who I was. When I arrived at the hotel ( around 02:30) they were waiting for me and checked me in in less than 5 minutes....

A little tricky to find the place, but the staff offered to have someone meet us at the ferry to help us find our way. The location on Google Maps is correct - it is not along a main road, you have to go down some skinny alleys to find the place! Room was small but cozy and perfect for...

We booked this accommodation based on ratings and reviews, but were super disappointed from the get go. The parking area is quite a hike away and then you have to personally negotiate with a (random) guard to watch your car - at a fee he sees fit based on how much money he thinks he can get from you. When...

Warere, General Manager at Warere Town House, responded to this review

Dear Go_Happy_Festival, From the moment I spoke to you on the phone I knew you would leave us a bad review! We are located in Stone Town and of course parking is always an issue in any city in the world. I do not think your problems with the parking guard are in any way our responsability and should not...
