I contacted the owner Tausi for a day use of the room since I was travelling earlier on the day from Kendwa and my flight was not till later in the evening. Communications via email was prompt and upon arrival the room was clean and ready. I enjoyed the location for my last minute shopping at the local market and...

The owner sent a taxi to pick us up at the airport for free. Then he welcomed us in person. When we wanted to go to the city center he asked a person he knew to come with us and he did quite a good guide thank you! The room itself was big but there were hairs on the sheets...

Stone Town is a big maze but I say Zanzibar Lodge was easy to find because Tausi managed to put signs up at the street... I find the location great as it is easy to reach everything from the Old Fort to the night market and and the House of Wonders as well as the sea front. Well, Stone Town...

The Lodge is a cozy place and the owner and her daugher are lovely and helpful! For Stone Town the price is good, since it is generally a expensive town. The rooms are clean and big and the breakfast is fine for it's price. Ask for someone to pick you up, it is a bit difficult to find.

I stayed with Tausi at Zanzibar Lodge in April 2013 and have been meaning to post a review ever since. It's extremely hard to find affordable accommodation in Stone Town, and the Lodge was affordable and very pleasant. We had a private room with air-con and breakfast every morning (at whatever time we needed). The staff really put the Lodge...

When you arrive to zanzibar from the continent, you discover higher prices for everything. Especially for accomodation. Zanzibar Lodge is a cosy place for the low price. I fell in love with terrace on the roof of this hotel - nice panoramic views to the sea, to Stonetown, scream of children in the school, light noise from the streets and...

Zanzibar accommodation is more expensive than mainland Tanzania (and over-priced for what you get) but that said, Tausi has created a lovely place to stay in the middle of all the action (close to Darajani market) and she and her staff member Aly at there to help you with whatever you need. I was a single traveler and stayed in...

If you are looking for a cheap place to stay in expensive Stonetown / Zanzibar this cheap budget place might be a place for you to stay. Everything is extremely basic, but you pay considerable less here than in other places in Stonetown. You are in the middle of the city, near the market. So taxi drivers can drop you...
