I stayed at the Zenji hotel for 2 nights at the end of a 2 week tour of Kenya and Tanzania.
It is a lovely relaxing hotel, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the coffee is scrumptious. You should try the cappucinos!!
I stayed in the room called 'Spice corner' and really liked the individual touches....
The rom had A/C and a lovely 4 poster bed.
It is an authentic hotel with a lot of character.
The main advantage of this hotel is it's proximity to the port, so if you are getting the ferry, it's ideal.
The only disadvantage is if you are a sinlge traveller, the area down by the ferry port leaves you feeling a bit uneasy, especially if you are walking back from the centre of Stone Town at night.
It is only a short walk to the main part of stone town, so this is only a small point.
You feel completely at home in the hotel, the minute you walk in, especially on the rooftop terrace, where they have free internet.
They don't sell alcohol, and the kitchen closes in the evening sometime, but you will want to eat in one of the restaurants in Stone Town anyway, so this is not a problem.
This is overall a great hotel, and I would recommend it.
