Reviewed 29 July 2014

Perfect location, perfect service, perfect food. The only small setback would have been the noise coming from the streets at night, even though this might have been cause by the Ramadan. I would highly recommend the Zanzibar coffee hous

I really enjoyed my stay. The room was clean, the service was top notch, the coffee was outstanding, and the rooftop breakfast was fantastic.

If I ever head back to Zanzibar, I will certainly stay at the Zanzibar Coffee House again!

On arrival you are warmly greeted with a beverage of your choice, which you will feel compelled to accompany by one of the pastries in the window display! The are as delicious as they look. The coffee is home made!
The rooms have a simple colonial charm, are comfortable and very clean. Complementary water and internet connection available. Breakfast is served on the roof terrace, which gives you an areal view of stone town. Breakfast includes all sorts of fruits and very net resting mango jams!
The management is really helpful with all the questions you might have about stone town or excursions you might want to do on the island.

Great hotel in the middle of the Stonetown labyrinth. Delicious breakfasts in the rooftop lounge area with view on Stonetown. Internet did not work in our room but that wasn't a big deal. Highly recommend this hotel.

We have stayed in the Coffee House for one night and enjoyed our stay very much. The Hotel is located right in the middle of the Old Town and is therefore a perfect place to start exploring the streets and sights of Stonetown. The staff is very friendly and helpful. City tours, spice tour or another events can be easily arranged by the staff. Airport transport is reliable and not too expensive. I would definitely recommend to stay in the Coffee House.
Furthermore breakfast is rich and tasty.

The hotel is really beautiful and the rooms are huge, romantic, clean and comfortable!
Teh breakfast on the top of the building was really good and the best thing was the kind employees, thanks!
The situation is really good because you are in the middle of the markets and close to the beach and good restaurants.
