The property was centrally located close to the sea front. Staff were able to organise airport transport and were so friendly and welcoming on arrival. Everyone always greeted you with a smile.
The location is nice. You don't need to get lost in the maze of Stone Town to find the hotel (which is convenient at night), and there is a Police Station very close by. There are supermarkets nearby and a nice local restaurant next door. Air conditioning is available, as well as a good mosquito net. We had probably the best breakfast of our Tanzania trip here.
The facilities are old and don't look particularly clean. Shower water pressure was very low. The mattress was too soft for us. Our room was not cleaned (although they asked if we wanted and we said yes). We booked a trip to Jozani Forest with a drop-off in Jambiani, and we felt a bit overcharged, even though we negotiated the price. If you are reading this and want to book tours, you can try to contact Idrissa +255 773 109 970 via whatsapp. He was the one doing our tour (via the hotel). If we contacted him directly it would surely be cheaper.
Everything was good!
1. The excellent location, walkable distance from the ferry terminal and Stone Town and the market. 2. Very cheerful and helpful staff. Had a lot of fun talking to them. 3. Their breakfast is home made and very tasty. It is served in the terrace which is beautifully decorated. 4. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated. 5. The air-conditioning worked very well. 6. The locker provided in the room was welcome to store valuables. 7. There is a very good restaurant next to Zenji where we had many of our meals. 8. Check in and out was a simple affair.
When we didn't have a balcony, the helpful staff gave us a drying rack to use. Comfortable bed, quiet room and very good breakfast. Obliging and friendly staff. The room was a good space. This was our second stay and it was even better than the first time!
We missed the balcony that the booking said we had, but everything else was good.
