I'm rating this hotel very good due to it's convenient location, super helpful service and the fact that it doesn't pretend to be 5-star. It's got a quaint character about it, fitting with the location and provides everything you can expect for the price.
The only downside for me was the breakfast. Located on the scenic rooftop and exceptionally friendly service but the food didn't meet my expectations - I was tired and ready for home by this point though so possibly a bit harder to please.

I was her for two nights! The hotel is in stone town, 5min walk to forodhani! The rooms are nice with Econ and very quite. The disapointing thing is that they don't have a bar or restaurant within! So if you want to drink and food got to find them outside!

It is located in easly accessible location both by Foot and car as well.
Cost is cheaper

The Shanghai hotel is clean and comfortable and right in the middle of town staff are friendly. I think for the price it is well worth a visit to the Shanghai hotel. I have 4 stares because the t v didn't work

Reasonably priced, clean, and staff are very friendly. Close to everything in the stone town, few metres away from the sea front resort, Forodhani Park. Easy access to the sea port, market and shopping. Plenty of nearby restaurants.
Enjoyed my stay.
