    Emerson Spice is in the centre of Stone Town, right by the hustle and bustle of the markets, easy walking distance of the slavery museum and a few hundred metres from the coast. Great location in a lovely restored old building with all the trimmings...More

    Emerson spice is in stone town so I would not consider it a beach hotel. There is no pool. You can go later to the beach--but you should definitely spend a day or two in Stonetown
