This time, I had a chance to stay at Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Stone Town. The hotel is clean and up to the standards. The stuff, from the security guard and reception to the restaurant chefs are amazing, friendly and polite. Tony, the front desk manager is fantastic. He shines the whole place and when one approach him, he is so helpful and very friendly. The front desk staff, Abdurahman, Nabeel and the others too, they were so helpful. The welcoming warm chocolate chip cookie is to die for🤤! If you stay in Stone Town Zanzibar, DoubleTree is the place to stay!

Hotel's Favourite
This was a better-than-expected stay and this hotel and its staff made the best of it. The room was very comfortable, spacious, and A/C worked great. Bathroom amenities were top-notch and housekeeping did a phenomenal job getting our room cleaned every day. The breakfast was pretty good based on the amount of space they used, and the servers were prompt on getting us coffee, refills, taking dirty plates away. The dinners, in the same area, were fantastic! I recommend the coconut crab soup. The staff did a great job in helping us with the COVID testing requirements needed for our return journey. Each time I passed through the lobby, someone was there to greet us and asked how everything was going. Should I come to Zanzibar again, this is definitely where I am staying!

Nicely located hotel on the edge of the Stone Town. Reaching it is a bit tricky among the narrow lanes. Checking in was smooth and fast. We were upgraded to a suite at no extra cost. The suite was spacious, clean and modern, with no views but that was OK 😁. Breakfast was in an average sized rooftop restaurant with basic breakfast items. Staff in the restaurant are very attentive and helpful.

After a warm welcome at the Reception I entered the King One Bedroom Suite, which was really clean and spotless. You could hear no sound from outside, although The Double Tree by Hilton Zanzibar is located in Stone Town, a few minutes walk to the Freddie Mercury Museum. The mattress of the King Size Bed was not saggy at all, so I could sleep like a baby. After a hot shower in the stylish and clean bathroom I took the elevator to reach the 5th floor to have some breakfast at the Taarab Restaurant. I decided to sit outside, so I could have a good look at the nearby harbour. The breakfast was very rich and tasty, homemade bread and pastry were offered in different variations. The coffee was freshly made and really deserved its name, you could order freshly prepared eggs and pancakes. This breakfast was really stunning, so I would have even given 6 out of 5 stars for the very high quality. I highly recommend the Double Tree by Hilton Zanzibar, my special thanks go to GM Elmansoury, AM Tony, receptionist Ms. Tumaini, Ms. Kalista, Ms. Winnie, Ms. Sophista and Mr. Ramadhan. Thank you all for your warm hospitality. Asante sana from Germany.

During our 3 week holiday in Zanzibar, we had the pleasure of staying at DoubleTree by Hilton in Stone Town twice. The staff and friendly and helpful, their superior king rooms are large and comfortable and the temperature inside the hotel is perfect. We travelled with our 1 year old and they had a cot in the room on both occasions. The hotel itself is within walking distance of many shops, restaurants, and attractions. The hotel restaurant has a nice view and the food is delicious. Their breakfast buffet is one of the best we have seen in Zanzibar.
