Bad experience, go anywhere else. They sell you the room at a discount since low season, then late in the evening tell you to pay more or they will kick you out. Avoid the like the plague they are. No water at all until you have to ask for it. Super hot rooms as well.

I have been travelling for more than 11 years around the world and this was by far my worst experience. I came with my girlfriend 1 week ago. Situated in the center of Stone town. The rooms are old and furniture really ugly. The bathroom is disgusting and the shower was dirty. The fan didn't make us feel any breeze....

We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The location is pretty much in the centre of Stone Town and very easy to get around. Dorm room beds were comfortable and bathrooms were decent. Breakfast was included and we were really satisfied with the quality and service. Jimmy, the manager, was extremely helpful. When we arrived, he gave...

If you want to stay here, check...

Three beds in the room but not one with an intact mosquito net. 2nd room, the tap came apart and we had to stay in...

Despite the poor rating of this hotel, we decided to have a look. We arrived on the evening of a national holiday, so most hotels were already quite full. As I do speak a bit of Swahili (after two months in Tanzania), I received a warm welcome at the lobby. I explained that I am working for a local NGO,...
