The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room we had was very spacious, nice furnished and with a little balcony. The hotel ist central located and most attractions are within walking distance. Briefly: all you need to discover Stone Town.

It is hidden in town, not easily accessible with a car, in fact the taxi could not drop us at the entrance. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Free WiFi, passwords waiting in your room which is great. View from roof top is ok, but not too special. Rooms are clean and modern but we are looking out of our...

Stayed at Seyyida for two nights. Paid 100USD for a double room and to be honest, what you get is more than what you pay for. Absolutely amazing value for money! The staff is very kind and helpful, very flexible too to meet whatever needs you have. The location is super convenient as well. One minute walk to the House...

I admit it... I suffer from hotel envy. When I've decided on a place to stay, I can't resist going into other hotels and checking out their rooms to see how mine measures up. I can confidently say I had absolutely no hotel envy while staying at the authentic and enchanting Seyyida. Stone Town seems to offer two styles of...

I have stayed twice now at the Seyyida in the Stone Town quarter of Zanzibar and had excellent experiences both times. The location couldn't be more convenient, a few minutes walk from the ferry, but off the busy main road, set back enough on one of those winding narrow pedestrianized streets that are so characteristic of the old town -...
