My buddy and I decided to go to Zanzibar for two nights and couldn't have picked a better spot. We actually stayed at the drifters backpackers hostel which is connected/adjacent to Arabian nights. David, the owner of drifters backpackers, was extremely friendly and helpful. He set us up taxis to/from the airport, and also knew people that we could book...

the hotel is located on the nice beach of Paje, spacious rooms with air condition. nice bars and restaurants nearby. Be aware that there is a problem with the electricity very often in the hotel, Wifi only at the reception hall, the Restaurant does not have air condition so it is too hot to have the breakfast there.

Had dessert at the restaurant at Arabian Nights hotel. The coffee, tea, and desert were average. Asked for pancakes with chocolate sauce. Got 3 plain crepes and a bottle of hershey chocolate sauce on the side. Asked for black coffee.. Got a pot of hot water and a sachet of instant coffee. Disappointed.

Nicely located at one of the best beaches of the Island. Beach has become very popular with kite-surfers, but you can also make long beachwalks. We have come here before. Still quite OK. Good breakfast, good dinner but slow service. Friendly staff. Wi-Fi only in Lobby and restaurant. Best rooms are the seaview suite rooms, but one has to book...

The last day when we counted the money in the locked safe we realized some money are missing (at least $300, not sure how many Zanzibar's schillings). Unfortunately I was stung by stingray in the last day so I didn't have a mood to argue with them so I reported it when I get back home and the pain relieved....

We requested a beach front room but you have to do so months in advance since the rooms go very fast (we booked in June for a December trip). The water in Paje is BEAUTIFUL and we had dinner on the beach on several occasions. The hotel is very affordable and good for people on a budget. When driving to...
