We stayed at The Zanzibar Grand Palace hotel for 3 nights. The hotel staff are friendly but we did have to call a few times to get the TV fixed, they also forgot to call us for our wake up call on one of the mornings.
The room was comfortable and had everything we needed. The location was good. A very short walk to the Gardens, market and restaurants. You don't need to get a taxi from the ferry port. Literally cross the road and turn right.
The restaurant for the hotel was not the best. We ate there the first night but then went elsewhere on the following evenings. The breakfast was a buffet style, which was ok. I do think the food could be improved though.
Overall a good stay but I think it is a bit overpriced for the service and food received.
