“Stunningly beautiful, exotic, and uniquly Zanzibar!”
Reviewed 7 September 2011

This family run hotel is steeped in rich history and tradition. The building has been in their family for generations, but they've updated and restored every room with the latest amenities. The intricate woodworking is jaw dropping. Each suite is unique with Swahili, middle-eastern, and Pakistani influence. From the top floors you can see dhows sailing in the Indian Ocean, the Old Fort, and all of Stone Town. Some rooms even have private outside hot tubs- the height of luxury. I was lucky enough to get a tour before the hotel opened this summer, and I can't wait to go back. The owner/manager is passionate about customer service and providing an experience for his guests. You can see this reflected in the highest standards maintained throughout the hotel. It's just beautiful. There is nothing else like Jafferji House on the whole island.

Stayed August 2011, travelled solo
