Reviewed 8 July 2015

Compared to other hotels in Stonetown, a great value for your money. Beds were very comfortable, air con worked great, hot shower and a breakfast area on the roof deck with view of the harbor. Centrally located for shopping, access to ferry, beach, boats to Prison Island, etc.

Nice hotel with friendly staff, especially the manager. Rooms are nice, with a lot of air and light. The hotel has got a terrace for breakfast and it is in a perfect location to visit Stone Town. The rate was absolutely fair, I wouldn't have paid neither more or less. Perfect for couples.

A friend recommended this guest house as he lives on the mainland and always stays here when in Stone Town. The family are so hospitable, Hamid, the owner, says on arrival "this isn't a hotel, treat it as your home" and that's exactly what it felt like. The place is simple but the furnishings are really beautiful (mostly Zanzabarian and...

The staff was excellent, they were exceptionally friendly, had great suggestions for places to eat and things to do near the hotel.

The Abuso Inn is a lovely, reasonably priced hotel. Our room was spacious and had a view of the water. Our trash was taken daily and our beds were made. There was air conditioning and hot water. The bathroom was also nice. Breakfast was served on the roof, which provided us with an incredible view. The owners are lovely people...

We stayed at the Abuso Hotel in Stonetown four nights. There is an incredible view from the rooftop breakfast area of the ocean and harbor. The rooms were large, but a little tired. The owner Hamid is very knowledgeable and friendly. He plans to continue rennovating and painting the interior of the hotel. The internet connection was a problem, but...

This is usually my landing pad in stone town. The homeliness of the place is what always brings me back. You can never miss the breakfast here... The beds, they are big. You got to try this place, you won't be disappointed.

This hotel is in the perfect location to explore Stonetown. It does not look like much from outside but once you get to your room all is good!! Everything works, its 30sec from the beach and a few minutes walking to basically anywhere in Stonetown. The breakfasts are basic but ok. Keep in mind that they are a "dry" hotel,...

We have visited Stonetown a few times over the years but this was our first time at Abuso Inn. I must say when the taxi pulled up at the front door I inwardly groaned and wished we'd stuck to our usual accommodation just down the road. However once we went through the door and up the stairs to the reception...

“Note that they don't accept credit cards and the banks in Zanzibar have a maximum limit of 200000TSH so plan ahead and bring cash. They do accept other currencies like USD or EUR.”

“A room in the front will have ocean and harbor views. The rooms are large and the air conditioning works well/ All rooms have windows that open and screens. The breakfast on the rooftop was scenic and tasty.”
