We stayed at the Art Hotel for three nights and had a great time. Yahya was a great host and really looked after us - he was so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are brand new and are really lovely and comfortable. We really liked the traditional touches such as sarongs instead of towels and flowers on our bed when we arrived. The food was really delicious and we ate there every night because Rajup (sorry if I spelt your name wrong!) was an amazing chef. As with most places in Zanzibar the food does take a while but we just ordered our meal early evening so that it was ready when we wanted to eat - no problem at all! The hotel is in the village so staying here is a different experience to staying directly on a beach - but that's exactly what we liked about it and why we decided to stay there.
For us the highlight was definitely Yahya and Rajup (and Victoria and Saida) - they were all amazing and really looked after us - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.
