Reviewed 13 February 2017

We stayed here for 2 nights and it is a little gem. The manger Ali was lovely and looked after us well. The rooms are traditional of Zanzibar and the breakfast is lovely. Definitely a better choice than the chain hotels you can get there. Really reasonable price too.

Room Tip: Get a front facing room with a balcony

Best place for Chai and pancakes. Sometimes they have good arabic cuisine (falafel, baba ganoush, etc) but other than that the food isnt mindblowing. Good place to relax and have a little something to eat though. (the spanish omlete and the avocado omelete arent bad either)

We loved this place. Its clean and central to everything you want in stone town. The owners Judy and Massoud were away when we went but their staff really looked after us.

The breakfasts were amazing and the food was fresh and good.

This is a simple place, it has aircon but its not a 5 star hotel. We loved it.

Room Tip: the room with the balcony is wonderful for afternoon book reading

Wonderful central location. Just walk out the door and your exploring adventure begins! Very helpful staff. Their cafe is at front entrance and all day meals. Rooms are very clean and comfortable with antique touches. I especially liked that it is a small hotel.

Spent 2 days and 1 night in Stonetown at the cafe/B+B. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay (wish it could have been longer!). The coffee was exceptionally outstanding! We were centrally located between the beach, slave chambers and great restaurants and shopping. Our rooms were spacious, clean, extremely comfortable and most importantly air conditioned! Hot showers were a treat following 2 months of travel in rural Tanzania
