Built around a quiet little tile courtyard The Chavda is a lovely hotel. It has the feel of a middle eastern merchant's house starting from the huge brass studded doors at the entrance to the pierced metal work lamps and wide plank floors. We booked our room through Hotels.com and got a great deal. We got a big king sized bed in the traditional local style, with a comfy foam mattress and mosquito nets that were in good condition and closed properly. The room itself was generously sized and the bathroom had good water pressure and very hot hot water (be careful it is hot). The staff are friendly and helpful and could arrange day trips, drivers and other activities if you wanted but they weren't overly pushy (we did run across this in other places we stayed). The rooftop restaurant had good wi-fi service and you could see most of Stone Town and some of the coast while you sipped your drink. Also the breakfast had a fantastic selection of fresh fruit and real coffee that actually tasted quite decent a nice change for eastern Africa. If your going to Stone Town I would recommend the Chavda as a pleasant place to stay.
