We stayed at Asmini Palace i December 2013. The staff was nice and the service was excellent. The location of the hotel is perfect; near Forodhani Gardens, Beit el Ajaib, the sea front etc. Roof top restaurant serves basic meals with a nice sea view.

I stayed 25 days at Asmini Palace Hotel. Maintenance, house keeping and services were excellent and all the staff service-minded and friendly. A roof top restaurant serving a mix of continental and local dishes. There is even an elevator, which is rare in Stone Town. Centrally located in a quiet mainly residential area. Value for money and a "home away...

I have stayed at Asmini Palace twice, once in 2008 and again in 2013. It is absolutely awesome! A bit hard to find in the middle of the tiny streets, but once you do you won't be disappointed. The staff are great and the rooms are even nicer. Four poster beds with mozzie netting and great Zanzibari architecture. Neat and...

The rooms are excellent, big and comfortable with nice bathrooms and cable tv (which actually worked perfectly which is unusual!). However as the hotel is in the same price range as other nice hotels in stone town then the rest of the hotel is not good value. There's no pool of course and the roof top terrace is a bit...

After asking for new sheets we had to make the bed ourselves to fing huge holes in the new sheets we were given. Unbelievable but...

I needed a hotel for 1 night and came across this place by accident - but what a perfect accident. I managed to get a fabulous room with a albeit small view of the sea.
