Rooms are basic but convenient. I got a good price for a single room in low season (20$). The hotel is very close to the beach (1 minute walking) and it is a good place to relax and meet other travellers if you are alone. Breakfast is ok, and the restaurant also offer meals for lunch and dinner, however the restaurant it is expensive for what they give. Staff is very friendly and they create a warm atmosphere. Good reggae music is played during all day.
The hotel is located in Bwejuu and we used to go to Paje because the beach is nicer there, so we rented a bike and rode during 5 minutes to reach Paje. If this is unconvinient for you, you should consider to stay in Paje. Regarding the tides, it's true you can't swim anytime you want but it happens in the whole east of Zanzibar.
Anywhere you stay I totally reccomend to do snorkling in the "blue lagoon", it is as nice as Mnemba and less than half price.
