Ranked #27 of 31 Stone Town B&B and Inns
Reviewed 31 January 2011

Was a bit nervous about staying here after I got bad reviews about this hotel, but was reassured that the hotel had undergone a renovation. In fact, the room was incredibly clean (took all sheets off bed and mattress looked brand new). NO bedbugs whatsoever

The food was reasonably good (its coz i dnt like to try local food). Apart from that, a free wi-fi is available on the ground floor of the hotel. The rooms were conditioned, water heater and a tv set with cable television.

The location of the hotel is also nice its just outside the harbor. Would say here again. The hotel is good in every aspect services, cleanliness, internet services etc. The staff made the hotel even better. They are very friendly and very helpful. The hotel is well managed. And would like the owners to continue their good services. I would like to suggest to the hotel owners to provide transport from the airport and also include some safari trips for the customers.

I wish i could have stayed longer but sadly had to leave. But il make sure whenever i revisit Zanzibar, it will be in this hotel where im going to stay

Fungus on walls right next to the pillows, even fungus in the sheets.
Smelled inside ! like rotten water. They told us they just painted parts of it...

Outside on the dark creepy street: directly (5 minutes walk) from the ferry stop. Not quite what you expect of "zanzibar, the white beach"...harbour, containers, a street where you can't walk by yourself at nightm only 2/3 or more people (strongly advised not to do so by our kenyan guide!)
We had a room behind the reception. We almost threw up of the smell after being 15 minutes in the room. The television plug was full of some stuff, that looked a lot like a sirop kind of stuff. Some toilets in the building flushed, but the water came underneath it and entered the room. When we complained, they sprayed strawberry airspray....

The next day (we had to sleep in it for one night, this was really a hazard for health but practically whole Zanzibar was fully booked since it was almost New Year). The next day they offered another room, that had just been painted. Also already new spots on the wall, but it didn't smell. A "nice" (not) view at soms containers from the harbour.
We took it for that last night...It was kind to do that of the people, but you have no idea what we had to do to get this offer..

Breakfast was reasonable, and very special:...there was free internet. I suggest they put that money in the rooms, not in internet....
