5 star staff! Excellent service from EVERY member of the staff. Spacious rooms and free breakfast. Only negatives i can think of are slow wifi and wall window AC units which can be underpowered. Mosquito net on the bed was a plus!

Great location. Our room was in the next building and was very spacious and clean. We had a sitting room and a kitchen. The pool was great. WiFi in public areas was fast. The food at the restaurant was okay.

Very nice staff, accommodating and friendly. Very cute hotel, lovely Swahili design, and nice location for exploring Stone Town. The food was not the best and cleanliness was also not great. But overall enjoyed our stay here.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. We are in lovely room on top floor with view of ocean and beautiful outdoor shower and tub. Great experience.

Don't come in expecting a brand new hotel... This place has a rustic charm that matches stone city. It is beautiful and I would definitely return.
