The Seyyida Hotel & Spa, Stone Town’s Boutique Hotel - Zanzibar Feel History! The Seyyida Hotel & Spa, standing proudly on the edge of Zanzibar’s Stone Town, captures the spirit of romance of an island whose history has been written by the Monsoon winds. Zanzibar has a cultural heritage dating back to the era of the Omani rule in East Africa. The hotel’s name, Seyyida harks back to an era in the island’s history when the term “Seyyida” was used in addressing female Arab royals. The Seyyida Hotel & Spa itself is a royal place to be and its physical proximity to the former royal residences is an interesting historical coincidence. To this day, the hotel shares a strong bond with the island’s royal heritage, overlooking the resting place of the former sultans. In the course of its history, Zanzibar witnessed waves of visitors from far and wide making the archipelago an ethnic and cultural melting pot. This is reflected in the art collection in this boutique hotel, which includes handcrafted textiles, artifacts, paintings and oriental furniture. Do you want to know more, or maybe you want to stay with us at the Seyyida Hotel & Spa? Then do not hesitate, for further queries, availability or a quotation request, please, feel free to contact us directly at anytime!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We arrived in the middle of a freak thunderstorm in the early evening. Stone town doesn’t get huge thunderstorms and torrential rainfall. It finally eased and we get to Seyyida which is down a small alley off the main road. If you don’t know Stone town...it’s a maze of stone alley network that are only accessible by foot. It’s quaint, charming and absolutely delightful.

Seyyida is set back a little but essentially on the main beach front of Stone town and a 2 minute walk to Forodhani market square which is well worth a visit in the evening for the fresh fish and delicious sugar cane juice. Seyyida is surround by wonderful history, the oldest cemetery in Stone town and the local museum.
It is a delightful old (newly renovated) hotel. The rooms are large and very comfortable and fully air conditioned. As with any old buildings in Stone town, it has lots of stairs and many levels. If you have trouble with steps, ensure you inform management and they can accommodate you on the ground floor. The corridors are open to a beautiful courtyard in the middle of Seyyida covered in healthy and large foliage. A superbly clean swimming pool on the second floor is a lovely surprise.

The rooftop restaurant is beautifully decorated with comfortable seating areas with touches of multi cultured Zanzibar. The menu has a nice selection of food which we thoroughly enjoyed, delicious freshly squeezed local fruit juice and I miss the gorgeous view over the boardwalk and ocean whilst sipping on a delicious mojito (the best I’ve ever had).

The staff are wonderfully helpful and so friendly. Catia, the manager, runs a tight ship and is very accommodating to requests. She was a delight. People often complain of the speed of service in Zanzibar...please remember that its just a more laid back culture so just sit back, kick your feet up and enjoy it. Getting frustrated will only spoil your own experience.

Stayed at Hotel Seyyida in February 2020 with a friend. We stayed in room 316 which I would advice you avoid for the following reasons:

* It was incredibly noisy. It was not a sea view room so there was a lot of noise from the street, but what disturbed us the most was the noise from the guests in the next room which we could hear clearly, it was almost as if they were staying with us in the room, reason being there was only a wood panel separating the two rooms and not an actual wall.

* There was no bathroom door but rather a flimsy curtain where door is supposed to be.

* There was no WiFi whatsoever in the room, you can only pick a WiFi signal when you’re outside the room.

* There were no blankets in the room, and the A/C was directly facing the bed so it got very cold for us at night.

The positives about the Seyyida were the good breakfast and lovely service from the waiters.

We stayed two nights at Seyyida Hotel & Spa as part of the second week of our honeymoon. We booked through Trailfinders and were transferred from the airport to the hotel with Fisherman Tours. The hotel is right in the middle of the Stone Town alleys, which is where so much of the life of Stone Town is. We loved getting lost among all the small streets and felt quite safe during our stay.
The hotel itself is simple, nicely decorated with plants and art work, but fairly standard in other regards. Our room was a comfortable size with a four poster bed and a balcony. It was simple but comfortable and enough for two nights, but I don't think we would have wanted to stay there much longer. It gets quite noisy at night and you can get woken up by the calls to prayer, so I'd recommend bringing a pair of earplugs to help you sleep.
There is a small pool which is nice for cooling off in and relaxing by the side of with a book.
Where the hotel really falls down is in the breakfast and the overall service. The breakfast was very slow and not good quality at all. They offered things which would then not be available. The eggs on the eggs benedict were incredibly overcooked. I would look elsewhere for breakfast. The service overall wasn't great, staff were slow to help, it would feel a bit like you were bothering them. Having had a fantastic experience in Kenya, this felt like a bit of a let down.
If they improve their breakfast and their customer service, this would be a really nice hotel to stay in whilst exploring Stone Town, as the location is really excellent. As it is, it's comfortable enough for a couple of nights.

Hotel was well situated and room pleasant as it had aircon. Some issues in the room, the shower leaked badly meaning there was always water on the floor (a little silicone round it would solve the problem) one of the sink taps was broken and the balcony door flooded after raining which meant half the room was flooded. The pool looked nice but didn't use it however the loungers look like they had seen better days. We had to have breakfast in the room one morning due to rain on the terrace however there is no where for 2 people to really eat. The 2nd morning we ate in the restaurant however avoid the coffee its only instant, which was truly awful. I asked for a cup of hot water and used my own tea bag instead. In a country surrounded by coffee producers i thought they'd have had good coffee. Having spent a week in kenya where the coffee was amazing. Other parts of the breakfast were pleasant they brought a plate of fruit and a basket of pastries
All in all average I'd say. Also if you want to do a trip over to prison island don't pay the $45 trip just wander down to the beach and someone will take you over ww paid 60k shillings and spent an hour there and our boat waited for us.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are glad you chose Seyyida as your holiday destination but would like to point out some things. The shower and sink issue could have been solved had our maintenance department known about it just as the flooded room problem could have been solved had our housekeeping department known about it. We are sorry our coffee was not to your liking, everything we prepare is always prepared with attention and care. We are happy to read that the rest of the food you had was to your liking and we will share your kind words with our restaurant department who will be happy to read them. As for the excursion, we never recommend going with the beach boys as many don't have insurance or permits to lead the trip. We have a list of trusted guides who have everything required to conduct the excursion most safely, hence the price difference between them and the beach boys. We do hope to have you back again soon! Regards S.Carusi Guest Relations Manager

The hotel staff are a mixed bag. Some are incredibly friendly and helpful while others don’t seem to understand the concept of customer service (in the restaurant). The wifi is non existent in 306, but satisfactory on the rooftop restaurant. Wonderful location and incredible rooftop restaurant view. Restaurant food, good to very good. Reception very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our room (other than lack of wifi), although it’s quite noisy in evenings.

The hotel is a calm and relaxing space. It was full during our stay but it never felt crowded. It is conveniently located in heart of Stone Town. When you are out and it is getting too hot or you need a break from the hustle and bustle, you can easily head back to The Seyyida to cool off in the air-conditioned room or take a dip in their wonderful pool. We stayed in the superior seaview room. The room was large, spacious, and comfortably accommodated us and our 3-year-old. The highlight for our child was being able to watch the ferries and container ships come and go from the room.

Hi, I did a workshop there with a small group of 10 people. We were more than happy and this is due to the fact that the manager of this hotel, Maureen, worked from morning till night to make our stay a success. To the owner of this place: you should do everything to keep Maureen. I do lots of events in Africa so I know how important a good General Manager is, and that he/she has good relations with the staff. Maureen transformed the boarding room into something really beautiful so that I can really recommend the place for small groups up to 12 people. Food was very good, with big portions and great choices, allthough on the expensive side. Rooms are big and very clean. The best thing about Seyyida is its location which can't be beat: next door to Palace Museum and Forodhani gardens, with sea and sunset views. I the middle of he old city but some steps away from the tourism frenzy. You have wonderful breezes in the evening up there. Breakfast is abundant, with even sparkling wine if you like. All in all a fantastic place which felt like home thanks to Maureen.

Wondered where we were going when our taxi driver lead us down a dark, dank back street which we wouldn’t have ventured down on our own. Fortunately it lead to a pleasant looking hotel in a central location.
We were greeted by a serious, quietly spoken member of staff. It was difficult to pick up all that he said but we were promptly taken to our room. It was clean and spacious, nicely decorated with a large bathroom and a small balcony.
As it was late food was no longer being served but we managed to get a drink (from a very limited choice) and sit on the rooftop terrace which overlooked the beach and harbour.
Breakfast, also served on the rooftop terrace was ok. Choice was again limited and service was extremely slow.
Watch out for the crows, they will clear your plate if you leave the table!
We stayed 3 nights and didn’t eat at the restaurant other than for breakfast as there are some great alternatives in town.
We used the pool one day which was small but just about adequate (only 4 sun beds). It was however very noisy with workmen drilling nearby.
We went out on our balcony but that too was noisy from what looked like a generator directly below our room. This could also be heard from our room with the doors and windows closed.
Our stay was fine but we would not stay at this hotel again or recommend to friends due to noise and poor service. On our last full day our bathroom was cleaned and towels removed but not replaced. I phoned reception who advised they would be available in the evening as the laundry was very busy. I said this was unacceptable as we wanted showers before going out for dinner. They said nothing could be done!
Our onward taxi was booked through the hotel prior to arrival. When I checked on it the night before departure they didn’t seem to know anything about it but did go ahead and book one for the time we requested.
I clearly stated the name of the hotel we wanted taking to. It transpired on our journey that the hotel had told the driver the wrong hotel. Fortunately this did not affect our journey as the driver checked with us in time.
Overall service was poor and staff were not particularly friendly.

Dear Guest, Thank you for writing such a detailed review regarding your stay. We are sorry you found our hotel loud and noisy, but being in the heart of town it is normal to hear sounds coming from the outside, it is part of the beauty of staying in the city center. Our team is always friendly and ready to help, if that wasn't your case we profoundly apologise. As for the dark path leading to the hotel, although it might not seem like the most developed road, it is safe and as you said yourself, everything is in a very central location. As for food and drinks we are sorry you found the selection limited, although our chef would have done everything possible in order to satisfy your cravings had he known about it. We do apologise for the towel as well as tri inconvenience, we will take everything into consideration in order to improve and provide the best possible service. We do thank you for your kind comments regarding the design of the hotel and rooms as well as breakfast food! Once again thank you, Regards Guest Relations Manager

Stayed in the hotel one night at the end of our stay on Zanzibar Island. It’s location is very good for exploring the old town and restaurants. The rooftop terrace and upper dining area are breezy and have excellent sunset views. The hotel was clean. There aren’t any lifts but the porters will carry your luggage up to your room. The hotel will look after your luggage and you have the use of the pool if you have checked out and leaving later in the day, all a plus. The swimming pool is ideal for a dip in hot weather, and the patio is in shade most of the day. However there were a few items that were slightly annoying for a hotel of this standard. The rooms are promoted as sound insulated but ours (307) was directly beneath the kitchen and there was frequent loud banging reverberating down the walls from 5.45am all day. There was no hot water in the shower on the morning of our departure. The bedside lights were uplighters, fashionable perhaps but impractical if you wanted to read in bed. One could reasonably expect these things to be not a problem in the hotel as they are within management’s control. So I’m marking the hotel down a star for these issues.

The room we stayed in is an architectural nightmare. It has two floors. The lower floor has the bathroom and a small living room. In the living room, there was only one electrical outlet, and it didn't work. The bed is on the upper floor, connected to the lower part by stairs with extremely high steps. Clearly, it was poorly designed. Good luck climbing and descending stairs with steps that must be over 30 centimeters high just to go to the bathroom. When we booked the room, we were told it had a private balcony. In fact, what it has is direct access to the hotel's balcony, where the restaurant is located. So, it's anything but "private."

The room had other problems. It doesn't have a refrigerator (which I find inconceivable, especially considering it's a warm place) and the shower drain was clogged, leaking water all over the bathroom floor. I requested numerous times that they look into the drain issue, until a staff member told me there was "no solution" and that the problem was the narrow plumbing (!!!)

Another thing I found bizarre and senseless (and that I only discovered upon arrival) is that the room does not include breakfast. I had to pay extra. So, a room that is offered as "premium" is, in fact, a letdown... With an extremely inconvenient layout and, inexplicably, no breakfast included.

Another problem with the hotel (which, in this case, I won't blame on the hotel but on Stone Town) is that it's in an area with no car access. So, you have to carry your own luggage on arrival and departure.

Except for these issues, it's an average and reasonable hotel, nothing more. Just avoid the duplex rooms, as they're a trap (no matter how much they try to convince you that they are superior rooms).

They have a good spa and reasonable prices ranging from $ 30 to $200. But good to remember that Spa closes at 5 pm.
