I had been living in Tanzania for about a month when I visited Zanzibar with a group of about 18 other people. We had not made hotel accommodations for Stone Town and many places were closed or trying to charge us a lot. The place had everything we needed--nice cheap rooms, breakfast in the mornings, even wifi! The owners grandson...

A well-run, European-style hostel, conveniently located in Stone Town. Clean rooms, a spacious and comfortable outdoor lounge (great for meeting other travelers) and friendly, helpful staff who can assist with booking tours and shared transportation to toerh parts of the island. Less than ten minutes' walk from anywhere in Stonetown. It's difficult to find the first time (as are most...

This place is a gem hidden in the middle of the Stone Town. The place is very quite and a good way to experience the feel of the the historic town. Five minutes walk from Forodhani gardens and darajani market. The place is also very budget considering that you are staying in the Stone Town. I paid 24,000 Shillings per...

Was ok, better then other places I looked at but really loud. If you don't want to hear noise until 3am and then be woken up at 6 might want to rethink. Also don't get the front room that's next to the tv. Staff was nice but breakfast was annoying. Said it was at 7:30 but more like 8. My...

Manch Lodge offers good value for money and is very conveniently located. We were able to walk everywhere during our stay there. We had only planned to stay a couple of nights, but loved Stone Town so much that we ended up staying longer. The lodge has a nice atmosphere. It's a bit shabby and could be a little cleaner,...

The staff were very friendly. Although I rather stupidly tried to go out of the hotel during Ramadan in a pair of shorts, the staff politely asked me to go and change due to it being Ramadan. I was not offended whatsoever and they put it in such a way that I did not feel embarrassed. We always had a...

We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed for one night and walked here from the ferry dock after arriving from dar. It is in a beautiful part of stone town. For breakfast we had pancakes, bread, omelette, tea, fruit and juice. It was really nice. The rooms were clean and very large. The beds were comfy too. Overall I...
