Kiponda B&B was a great place to stay on Zanzibar. Located in Stone Town and very close to the waterfront and Forodhani Park. The rooms were clean and adequate; the rooftop balcony where a delicious breakfast was served was open and airy and a wonderful place to enjoy a morning cup of delicious Tanzanian coffee. The staff was so helpful to us. They were at the airport to pick us up, they arranged a driver to take us to the beach one day and when our flight plans were changed by the airlines and we had to leave a day early, they helped us get a place to stay in Arusha and arranged to get us to the airport.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kiponda Bed and Breakfast is in a historical house dating back to the 18th century when it was built as part of the palace; simple and functional yet friendly and welcoming, nested in the charming Stone Town of Zanzibar. This beautiful old original Swahili house is just a walking distance from the harbor and a stone throw from Forodhani Garden and the House of Wonders. The small and simple B&B is an integral part of the neighborhood – meet our friendly neighbors and feel at home in the middle of this buzzing town rich in culture and full of stories. Peaceful, authentic, comfortable and furnished simple but with style, this place has it all if you are out for the true experience. Built in Arabic style – with one interior portico, thick walls and plenty of natural ventilation – sitting at the roof top seating area where we also serve breakfast makes it easy for you to dream up your own story of ancient times. Kiponda B&B is one of those special little hotels you‘ll want to return to again and again, and that’s what many of our guests do. We offer simple quality accommodation and services without fake luxury – a true Zanzibar experience. ... more less
