My husband and I stayed at the Asmini Palace for a night because we wanted to stay IN Stone Town for the experience. The rooms were clean and nice -- only one of two hotels (out of 9) that we stayed in during our trip to Tanzania & Uganda that had a TV -- so that was nice. The bathroom was huge, well equipped, and spotless. The breakfast was good and the people running the desk were extremely nice, as was our driver from there that took us to the airport the next day. Our only complaints was that while the location was perfectly safe during the day to walk around the city and shop, etc., we went to return after our sunset dhow cruise (which we HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend by the way) and the alley getting there was pitch black and didn't look safe AT ALL -- so we had to hire a cab to drive us there (which only cost $3 USD -- but still) (and then the next morning we saw a guy peeing in the alley in front of the hotel -- I think that this hotel is a bit in an up-and-coming-area and not really on the tourist track yet) and when we came home after dinner at 9 PM -- we wanted to get a drink at the rooftop restuarant, but it had already closed. Recommend though -- overall.
