Love the intown location, among maze of alleys, shops, restaurants. The rooms are arabic flavored and comfortable, clean. Service was very good and friendly.Breakfast was good. They even had a complimentary brunch on Christmas day. There are stairs so could be difficult for some.

The breakfast on the roof top was great. The rooms are clean and spacious. The atmosphere and style is traditional swahili and as an authentic look and feel. We were in the heart of Stone town close to everything we wanted to visit.
