A haven of peace and tranquility nestled in the heart of bustling stone town. This impressive landmark, dating back to the 1800’s, and boasting a private garden of lush tropical vegetation, was the first ever ...More hotel on the island. A rich 19th-century air of elegance greets you as you walk through the original Zanzibari door.

Yes, they have a great bar in a very green and splendid garden. Try also the Kunyagi - a Tanzanian light gin. Several good beers available. Reasonable prices.
