Kobe House was amazing! From the Zanzibar airport, it takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to get there. Their room was spacious, clean and wonderful. The shower had hot water. It is on the beach, so you can swim there or walk to Jambiani and Paje and swim there. The food was amazing! I had watermelon and fruit juices,... More

We spent 3 nights and People were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. We had to ask for eggs. We were upgraded due to availability of larger rooms. The only weak point is the poor reliability of the wireless internet connection. You gave to ask for resets.
