The architecture is lovely, the guide full of interests g facts and stories, and the empty space is simple and evocative. Go.

Stone Town is a UNESCO site. It has a colorful, being part of ancient trading routes but also a dark history being the center of the East African slave trade. Oman was in control of this area and the Hamamni Persian Baths reflect this part of the history. Make sure that you go around back and to the roof to... More

For 5000TZS you get an actual tour with explanations and a trip to the roof to see the view. The baths aren't in the greatest condition which is a shame, but it's worth a visit to feel a) the vibe of the past and b) regret that they are not working anymore.

3 euros to enter and then read up as you visit the 5 or so chambers. Averagely interesting but not a must if you are short of time.

Whilst having fun exploring the maze of stone town these baths are an interesting stop. They are in well preserved and larger than they first appear, still it won't take too long to have a look around. It is worth accepting the offer of a tour through the rooms as the extra explanations do reveal a lot of the history.... More

This is an interesting site but poorly explained. Built by the same architect as the great baths in Istanbul. Sadly there are no working baths on Zanzibar any more.

I think we paid $1 each for a guided tour - definitely recommend that. This bath reminds me of the working hammams in Turkey, but of course this one is not working. If Stone Town could get it going again, boy would that be a money maker! Very cool place and absolutely incredible innovation for the time period. Quick tour... More
