From the friendly (and might I say extremely helpful) staff who greet you upon arrival (and cater to any request), to the views, amenities and general cleanliness of Seyyida, it is an easy hotel to recommend! The rooftop restuarant provides unparalleled views of Stone Town and it is centrally located to every popular tourist attraction. Bottom line:If you want to...

This was our second visit to Seyyida and we had a lovely time again. The staff is extremely helpful -- beyond providing excellent service at the hotel itself, they also assisted us to book a massage/pedicure, a taxi to the north side of the island and a flight back to the mainland. The rooms were comfortable and large with strong...
