Sheets were dirty, the shower didn't work and the room and bathroom werent clean enought. I ask in the reception to have a takeaway breakfast for the following day at 7:00am, they said there was no problem and the next day nobody could give me or prepare a breakfast. Moreover, they tried to increase the price for the spicy-tour.

A comfortable stay for one night on route to explore rest of Zanzibar. Had very helpful service from reception to assist with spice tour and taxi arrangements. Dont expect much more than a night's good sleep. Breakfast just OK, could not expect more for the price. Within comfortable walking distance from the ocean and gardens.

The room I slept in was comfortable and relaxing the window...

I've stayed there with my boyfriend for only one night. We appreciated only 2 things: it's in the city centre and the price was very low (more or less 13€ per night per person at the end of April). But that's it... the room was small, the bed covers were dirty (in fact we slept on our towels), the bathroom...

We stayed here in March of 2013. The hotel arranged for us to be picked up (no charge) and went out of their way to help us in any way they could. They even kept our luggage for a week while we traveled to other places on Zanzibar. The hotel's accommodation is basic, the breakfasts average but the service level...

I was backpacking through Stonetown and I saw Coco in lonely planet's travel guide. I decided its location near the gardens and the old fort made it a good bet as to where I should go. It is true, the location is great... a 2 minute walk from the food festival each night in the gardens (be careful what you...

I stayed for 3 nights, paying $35 for each night. Considering the price, and the cost of accommodation elsewhere in Stone Town, Coco De Mer was a brilliant find. The staff were amazingly helpful and were always on hand to answer my many questions. They offer a booking service for a shuttle bus to either the East or North of...
