Our room was spacious and the A/C blew cold. Great view of the inner city. Bathroom & shower had good water pressure. No hot water running, though with the weather being so hott anyways, we didn't miss it. Breakfast on the roof was beautiful & nice food.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Pickup from the airport was free and on time. The driver helped me to buy phonecard and airtime. The breakfast was sufficient - the fruitjuice mix really tasty. They also assisted to arrange a spice tour and a driver for transfer to Paje.

This hotel is basic but great value for money. Staff are honest, very friendly and helpful - so are the general public. The road infront could do with tlc. Irrespective of what the streets and buildings look like (rundown) - its safe to walk at night.

I booked online because the price was ridiculously good, and was pleasantly surprised when I arrived. The location is in the north corner of Stone Town, quite a grungy, authentic and un-touristy area, close to the Port and a short walk from the ferry terminal. I flew in and was transferred free from the airport. My room was spacious, clean,...

Me and my boyfriend we spent 3 nights in this hotel. The rooms are acceptable let's say. However their service is really poor. We booked with them a day trip to Prision Island as we thought that it would be more comfortable to book it through the hotel rather than through an agent on the streets. However, I would never...
