Colin Martin,4thNov,2008.
Staying comfortable,very kindly staff.It's above our expectation staying in Zanzibar Asmini Palace Hotel,is the place I can advice people to stay,relaxing,enjoying and is the place where you can find a nice explanation of Stone town for making tour place.

Asmini palace you can only ride up to their RoofTop with their fast running Elevator.We do enjoye the Food and drinks from theire Best Restaurant..

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2008

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.

  • Liked — TV, clean and comfy rooms and bathrooms, good service
  • Disliked — Location at night

We arrived to Asmini after a magnificant safari at Serengetti. The rooms was nice and clean with plenty of space. The staff was all very service minded during our stay. The restaurant at the top of the hotel has a beautiful view of the surrending buildings and the sea.

Stayed July 2008

The best aspect of this hotel was the staff - really friendly and helpful. We arrived quite early and our room wasn't ready, but another room was made available for us to rest after an overnight flight from the UK. The room was a good size, clean and with a good bathroom. The fridge in the room was noisy at night, however, and there were few drawers or storage space for clothes. Breakfast was ok, but we had one evening meal there which was of very poor quality. Location was fine, and the hotel represented good value for money.
