The Rosal is a fantastic place to stay while in Stone Town. Rose and Al (the owners--cute!) are amazing--they make it a point to sample every restaurant in town so they can give great recommendations at every price point. They also have a cadre of reliable taxi drivers and tour guides on hand to help you with whatever it is you want to do. I had previously been to Stone Town before the Rosal opened and stayed elsewhere and trying to figure out who to go with in the throngs of people offering tours and taxi rides can be quite daunting but Rose and Al make it easy. The hotel is also a great value--the rooms are simple but have AC, a fan, and a mini fridge and are very clean. The shower also has HOT water if you want it. Breakfast is great and served every morning on the roof top terrace and usually consists of a fruit plate, juice, porridge, coffee, tea, eggs, sausage (non-pork--this is Zanzibar), toast and something sweet. The only downside is that the restaurant truly is in the heart of stone town, in the throng of narrow, winding streets. But the locals are great and very helpful in giving directions (once even walking us there themselves!) and, if you want, Al can arrange a very reasonably priced taxi to pick you up at the airport or ferry to get you there. I would definitely stay there again!
