Pros: Well places And pleasant
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Lovely clean and beautiful large suite.
Cons: I could not charge my iPhone with any USB port in my big and expensive suite ... not good I wait some gift or decorations for our anniversary and they promised by mail but they did nothing
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Overall, the property is stunning, the service is spectacular, the food is great. The location is super central. The gym is pretty solid as well.
Cons: Our first room didn't have working AC. They moved us the second night, but overall, I found that to be non-negotiable. They didn't really remediate the situation aside from moving us the second night. The AC in the gym also wasn't really working. So the gym was....pleasantly warm (to say the least). I also found it to be a bit steep at $500+ a night for when we were staying there.....
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Situated in what seems to be a former royal palace, this hotel gives you a glimpse of history, overlooking the sea. Simply breathtaking sunsets
Excellent 9.7
Pros: Terrific hotel with wonderful pool, views, right on the beach, good food selection and quality, superb staff. A bit pricey for being right in stone town (and therefore not on the nicest beach), but a great place to stay for those who don't have time to get out to the further parts of the island
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Environment Location Property
Cons: Short stay
Good 7.0
Pros: Comfortable and clean hotel with friendly team there.
Cons: No beach. So needed to take an hour taxi to reach beaches. Was not clear in hotel advertising. They are by the ocean but a public beach with no beach facilities or swimmable.

Pros: A central location with such friendly welcoming staff. A beautiful breakfast on the rooftop terrace with their own in-house roasted coffee beans. The family room was great! We would definitely stay here again.
Cons: The mattresses are firmer than we are used to but this seems to be standard in Zanzibar.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Staying at the Coffee House Hotel was just wonderful! Rooms are decorated in original Zanzibari style with big four-poster beds, staff are very charming and breakfast on the rooftop is a highlight! The location in the middle of the old town is very nice. The very lovely and always busy café on the ground floor adds to a nice atmosphere and serves wonderful coffee and cakes all day. I recommend highly!

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Really loved our stay with Kisiwa. Location was excellent, we walked all around Stone Town from the hotel, everything is on its doorstep. It is on a great little street for shops and restaurants too! Staff were very friendly and even kept our bags while we explored the city after returning from another hotel in the South-East of the Island later in the trip. This was above and beyond and we were very grateful! Breakfast was incredible. The variety of food along friendliness of the staff was exemplary. We thoroughly enjoyed this every morning. Rooms and facilities - Again another amazing feature of this hotel. The room was spacious with a deluxe bathroom including a bath! The bed was very comfortable and the cleanliness was impeccable. All in all a faultless stay! Highly recommended by us!
Cons: Nothing

Cons: The breakfast had limited choices
Good 7.9
Pros: Very clean, comfy bed, big bathroom, free toiletries, good location, nice brakfast at the rooftop terace.
Cons: The staff could speak better English, room was dark and there was no balcony (we had to ask them to find a place where we can dry our wet clothes).
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The hotel is situated in an old house. There was air conditioning in the room and a spacious bathroom with a bathtub. It strikes me that the room is very tall - ceiling height is maybe 5 m or more. The location is good as long as you have a map that guides you. Otherwise you are easily lost. The climate in the room is perfect, best of all other hotels we experienced in Tanzania.
Cons: The mosquito net over the bed was torn in some places. We didn't really need it, so it's no problem. It may make sense to install fans in the room and on the terrace on top of the house. Otherwise it is very humid, impossible to stay here for long.

Pros: very nice hotel , we enjoyed a lot

Pros: Reception staff, pool, views and location all excellent.
Cons: We arrived for breakfast at 9.30am, it finished at 10.00am. However, we requested coffee and were abruptly told it had run out. Seemed odd. Also shower head wasn't great.
Good 7.1
Pros: Right next to the ferry terminal and the evening foodmarket.
Cons: A little wore down but it is an really old building, a lot of carisma.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The location for stone town was excellent. The bed was very comfortable and bathroom was very clean and changed each day. The aircon was powerful and kept everything nice and cool. The evening meal was good but service slow. The breakfast selection was reasonable and the fruit excellent.
Cons: We arranged a pick-up from the airport but the driver didn't show up. Then when we arrived we had to wait 2 hours for our room though we did arrive early but the hotel knew this in advance. However we were able to use the swimming pool and facilities whilst waiting. Get to breakfast early as when things ran out they were not replaced. There was only one pot of jam and peanut butter picked over by all guests at breakfast. The toaster was extremely slow. No alcohol is served and consumption is prohibited. Only main restaurants and bars in stone town served any alcohol and there were no shops to buy it from so best bring some with you from the airport if you want a nightly tipple. The chairs on the balcony were very low and you couldn't therefore enjoy the view easily when sat down.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Exceptional service and a beautiful hotel.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Great position on the waterfront close to the boats to Prison Island. The room was comfy with well functioning A/C and a lovely balcony.
Cons: Quite a lot of mosquitoes close to the swimming pool. Rooms are a bit dark. Mosque nearby so we were awaken 5am in the morning.
Excellent 8.3
Pros: Upon arrival I was surprised to see the traditional architecture of the building both inside and out which is to be expected . Despite this staff maintained and kept the place clean and in good condition . In prime location and you can literally walk to everything . Staff are helpful and always ready to assist with requests . Big shout out to msellem who was very accommodation and spoke excellent English
Cons: My only issue was I felt as though the sheets felt damp which was strange as though they had not dried properly which made it difficult to sleep .
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great breakfast and lovely rooms. Right on the seafront and staff were brilliant!
Cons: As a solo travelling female I found walking around stonetown not particularly pleasant, especially at night. Nothing to do with the hotel though!
Good 7.9
Pros: Great pool, lovely common interiors. The staff were very friendly and very helpful in organising taxis/ tours/ recommending restaurants etc.
Cons: The bed was soft and creaky. Breakfast was average.

Pros: The room was comfortable and a good size for me as a solo traveler. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and I was able to book several excursions through the reception desk. I also liked having the cafe available for meals, and the breakfast buffet upstairs.
Cons: The location was fine, but I would have liked to be slightly closer to the center of Stone Town.
Good 7.5
Pros: The breakfast was really good and one morning we slept in and missed the breakfast time slot by an hour and they still kindly accommodate us with what we wanted to eat.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Location is good, close to everything - within walking distance. Staff is extra helpful and nice. Room is basic but comfy, air conditioning is a very nice addition too.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: We only stayed for one night before going to the airport early in the morning. The staff was really helpful with everything, they even packed us an early breakfast since we left early. The rooms are nicely furnished and clean. There's a nice restaurant downstairs too. Definitely can recommend this place.
Cons: Location, it's less than 10 min walk to the city center, but it's near the port and the area at night might be sketchy though we didn't experience any problems when we walked late at night.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Everything was really nice. Breakfast was really good. Only problem was very low water pressure in shower.
Cons: Water pressure in shower was really low.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Very cute place Very good location Good breakfast Quiet (when the room gives on the pool) Small garden and pool very convenient and more than nice staff But we recommend the people to do a benchmark of the price of all the activities to be done on the island before booking with the hotel (you can find good opportunities) All in all very great stay that we recommend this warmly (3 minutes from the ferry as well)
Cons: See previous comment about the price of certain activities (except blue safari —> good price actually)
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Wonderful decor Air Conditioning Terrace Check in process Breakfast in general
Cons: Expensive room Expensive restaurant Expensive travel offers (you could find in the citycentre for half of that money.) Breakfast (Its nice to have omelette, but to let the waitress understand what would you like is a bit challenge
Excellent 9.2
Pros: 1. History of the place 2. The staffs 3. Location next to the mosque 4. Coffee 5. The rustic feel of the historical place 6. The aromatic smell of exotic spices around the house
Cons: 1. Mosquitoes around the garden & pool area. While having breakfast mosquitoes were having you for their breakfast. So ask for repellent & put it on 2. If you are looking for a room with a view this may not be the place 3. It is near the waterfront but not right at the waterfront. You have to walk about 100m or slightly less towards the ferry terminal 4. No proper shower but to have to step into a large tub-like structure. May not be suitable for physically challenged person
Excellent 9.6

Pros: Rooms were large and bathroom was modern with all amenities. All staff were excellent and very helpful. The breakfast terrace is great and there is a wide range of food along with an egg station for fresh omelets/ fried eggs etc. In room dining has a great choice of local and international food choices and was quick to arrive. The food was excellent. I also liked the surprise "gift" when checking in at the hotel which is a nice touch for all Doubletree Hilton Hotel guests. Hotel is in a great location just across the road from Park Hyatt and also close by to the Souq and main tourist attractions. There is also a tourist office next door to the hotel which was useful for arranging tours around Zanzibar.
Cons: Sometimes the plates ran out at breakfast and were not replenished quickly.
Good 6.7
Pros: Great location, but hard to find and no direct access on car. If you have heavy bags make sure the driver waits till you find the porter from the hotel Good breakfast on a terrace
Cons: Window of our room opened literally at the opposite wall in less than half a meter. No view at all, no daylight. Staff at reception is strict and formal.
Good 7.5
Pros: The location, the rooftop, and very, very nice staff, all professional and ready to help. Thank you for the hospitality!
Cons: The bed was somewhat uncomfortable, the bathroom towels need replacement, and most of all the food was a disappointment- although the Chef is an amazing host and such a pleasure to chat with.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Great location; friendly staff. Very clean and comfortable and beautiful hotel design in line with the history of Stone Town. We enjoy our stays at the Doubletree Hilton's.
Cons: I would have preferred a halaal (no bacon) menu as Zanzibar is mostly Muslim. The central Aircon in the hotel was a little too cold.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The room was exceptional. Fantastic bed. Amazing shower. The coldest air conditioning on the island. Great location. Also let us check in 5 hours early, which was greatly appreciated.
Cons: The food at the restaurant wasn't very good. We had lunch there once and our food came before our drinks. Even though there were 6 staff members standing around. Our waitress was very apologetic and never charged us for them.
Mediocre 3.8
Cons: Dirty room , towels had price tag on , no washed , bedding dirty . Internet service poor , no healthy breakfast etc

Pros: you receive what you pay. Excellent location in middle of Downtown, perfect location for sightseeing, port and the beach only 2 minutes by walk. We booked half board service, and the breakfast and dinner were amazing. You can choose everything what you want in the menu, different and tasty foods, extremely polite staff in the restaurant and in the reception. Perfect location for travelers.
Cons: nothing
Good 7.4
Pros: Big clean comfortable beds, spacious room, great wifi, fridge in the room, excellent tv reception with lots of channels
Cons: We didn't have hot water the first day. They fixed it the second, but the water pressure wasn't very good- I don't have thick hair and it took awhile to rinse the shampoo out... It's set back a ways from road so you need help with your bags an the food in the restaurant is limited and prices are high. Better breakfast at the Serena

Pros: The staff, like everyone in Zanzibar were extremely friendly, helpfull and approachable
Cons: The room we stayed in smelled extremely musty and mouldy as if the wooden furniture is very old. We didn't ask to change rooms as we were only there for 2 nights and hardly spent any time in the hotel as we were touring. I did also note that other people also noticed the same smell in their rooms (based on previous reviews and chatting to other guests) and thought it better to just air the room out. Airing the room did help slightly but the smell never completely disappeared.

Pros: Great location. The chefs Bagwan and Bijal were very kind and made us what ever we wanted. They went the extra mile to make sure we had delicious food. The staff are very nice and friendly. Love the live band and rooftop patio. Pool was so refreshing. Fab place.
Cons: Nothing
Excellent 9.7
Pros: Simple but friendly, good quality option in stone town.
Cons: Kayak's price was ~$30 less than booking at the hotel. The person at reception couldn't match the rate even though I was standing at the reception desk while booking.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: The staff were superb! Special mention to Maryam who served us food on several occasions. She was extremely friendly and attentive! The food in the restaurant was amazing, especially the lobster and chocolate fondant cake! The receptionists were very helpful as well, organizing transfers and tours and even a little takeaway breakfast for our early flight! Location is perfect right in the center of stone town! Everything is within walking distance! Couldn’t recommend this hotel enough! Bonus points for the cute Christmas tree at reception
Cons: Tv wasn’t working but didn’t really bother us as we were busy exploring for the few days. Didn’t ask for help at reception either so maybe there was something we weren’t doing right! No big deal in any case!
Okay 5.0
Pros: Good location in a pleasant green square near the sea. Easy walking distance to most attractions in Stonetown. Coconut crab soup is amazing and housekeeping staff were excellent in attending to issues.
Cons: We booked 2x superior double rooms but were given one very poky double that was anything but superior and had a major hygiene issue. Thankfully the staff took this seriously and we were given the second superior double for nights 2-3. When asked upon paying the bill how they would rectify the substandard first night, we were told that we had been upgraded (we hadn't, we just got the room we had paid for) and had accepted a complimentary massage as compensation. Breakfast service is painfully slow and instant coffee provided is dreadful (how embarrassing, in Africa's third largest coffee-producing country), unless you opt to pay extra for real coffee. Experience here depends greatly on the room you get, as there are some spacious, well appointed rooms, and others that are not fit for travelling salesmen and/or have maintenance issues.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The location is great and the staff is very friendly. The hotel is nicely decorated. I would not stay longer than 1night in Stone Town as there was not much to do.
Cons: The AC was not cold. However, as we were checking out, the front desk made a note about it.
Good 7.0
Pros: The best breakfast on Zanzibar! Very nice that they take the effort to give you a bit extra in the morning.
Cons: We didn't have a view outside the window ; just the roof of an other building. On the roof of our building was some kind of generator which made a hell of a noise in the middle of the night.
Mediocre 3.4
Pros: Nice building and location.
Cons: The room had a strong smell of mould. It was advertised as 33 m² but was not more than 11 m². There was barely room to get into the bed on either side of the single bed. The room was advertised as having a double bed. Since my night there, I have had a persistent chronic cough.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Location is just perfect. The neighborhood is quite and also 5 min walking distance to everywhere like Mercury’s house, night market, prison island boats,nice restaurants... Kind and helpful staff. It is clean enough and has AC in the room (not AC in the bathroom like any other hotels in Zanzibar) (please consider that you are in Zanzibar not in Japan or USA) Every country has its own dynamics. Breakfast is good, you can get fruits, omelette and sausage , bread basket and fresh fruit juices. AND the plastic bags are not allowed in this island so don’t forget to bring your own shopping bag to carry souvenirs or water bottles... Recommended !
Okay 4.0
Pros: Location and versatility to late check out. The bed was very comfy.
Cons: Small room. The fan doesn't refresh properly the room. For a 4 stars hotel we expected a better breakfast and facilities!
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Wonderful location. Almost every significant sight is located pretty close to the place. Hilton and Hyatt are almost in the next buildings, and it means a lot. we really enjoyed the ambience and the staff :) Very welcoming and nice people.
Cons: Breakfast could have been better. In case of a night rain be ready to hear the rattle of thin metal sheet from every drop. Very loud and noisy - these words are not even close to what is sounds in real life :)
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The room was spacious, very nice.
Cons: Restaurant can be improved.
Okay 5.8
Pros: Good location. Clean and nice room. Small bed.
Cons: We booked room for 2 adults and a child 3 years old... in the room there was only one bed. Nothing was made when I asked... cause there were no additional beds in the hotel. Very uncomfortable to have no sleeping place. One person slept on the floor.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Friendly staff, clean room, aircon and location in stone town. Definitely a place I recommend to stay on whilst in stone town. Close to the beach, good breakfast.

Mediocre 2.0
Pros: The seafood
Cons: The rooms are very old, toilets over flow, manager does not take clients seriously and even charged me for swiping, there are no ice cubes, the drinks are hot
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Very nice place. Good food. Friendly and professional manager and staff.
Okay 4.0
Pros: The reception Meal Live singing
Cons: Cleanliness,cleaner clean very late Waitress was mean i cant remember her name Most of workers treat white people special
Good 7.0
Pros: The bartenders were very friendly (especially Lincoln), the pool was great, the room was very nice (although the shower didn't work). When the tide is out, you can walk around the beach area and explore, which is really nice. It's also a 5 minute walk from the main road (safe area..even at night), and a dala dala into Stone Town Center was only like 500 TZS, or a bit more for a boda.
Cons: Food was very so-so. The seafood was not very fresh compared to everywhere else I ate on the island. The menu was a bit pricy for the location as well. Paying bills at the end was not a great experience. The machine would not accept my MasterCard, despite it working in Town, at atms, in Jambiani and in Nungwi. This was very frustrating. They wanted me to spend money to go to town to an atm, when the problem was with their card reader.
Mediocre 2.9
Pros: Pool
Cons: I need to give my review & feedback . I have read reviews from May 2018 back. But it seems the management doesnt care. 1. The rooms are stuffy 2. Linen not maintained or changed 3. Beds are squeaky 4. Food is terrible, particularly buffet. It probably id traditional but doesnt appeal to various ethnic groups. A la carte is better but takes an hour to place an order. 5. Bar tender at the pool is very rude always 6. Hidden costs like infrastructure tax per person per night , only communicated on check out. 4% swipe charge... only communicated when you settle the bill 7. Plenty attitude from some staff, even if English is not their language but actions do speak louder than words. 8. The beach is dirty. Not cleaned up. Too much litter Am definetly not coming back again. Happy new year .
Good 7.0
Pros: Location is isolated transport could be expensive but peaceful and calm place to stay with family
Cons: I was expecting a live music at dinner as I stayed there back in 2007 we had nice live music on weekend. Secondly I would suggest to have air freshener in the room as rooms smell Like Norton insect killer spray.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The gardens, the pool, the sea breeze and the spaciousness of the infrastructure and rooms.
Cons: Poorly trained staff who take far too much time to deliver on customer service.

Excellent 9.2
Pros: The view. The friendly staff and the location. If booking this property insist on having room 129. This was by far the best room for an ocean view. Staff were amazing and the journey into town very cheap and inexpensive.
Cons: Menu very limited. Very often our choice was unavailable. We ate there for the first night and then ate in town every night after that. Where there was much more choice. There was a bar, but was a bit sad. Box wine, no spirits, no cocktails and Kilimanjaro the only beer available with a tv blaring out. But small price to pay for what is a really nice hotel with genuinely nice staff. We would go back.
Good 6.3
Pros: The rooms are basic, but very clean and comfortable, the airco worked very well. We stayed only one night as it was close to the airport. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel for a longer vacation, the food is okayish, there is no pool and the beach is okay.
Cons: The photos on the website are a lot prettier than real life, the hotel is a bit run down and could use a bit of a facelift, they are benefitting from the old structures put in place but if they don’t upgrade it soon it can turn into a shady place.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: from the day one communicating with them.it was awesome. i am ready to go back again. the staff on point their drivers bar- man waiters are good. the Ocean view was awesome. i wish they could secure a private beach.

Cons: I booked for a sea view room but the room I got did not provide for this view.
Mediocre 3.0
Pros: Location only
Cons: The room facilities were not as advertised. The bathroom ancient and not functioning taps. No safety deposit box in room. No cupboard and drawers fir clothes. Only a clothes rack with few cheap hangers. No coffee machine in room. Seaview obstructed by overgrown bushes. Breakfast was the poorest i ever expetienced in all my stays. Not worth and would not recoomend. Wanted to chsrge an extra 6%,for credit card use. Unfriendly reception staff poor facilities everything still recorded in a book no technology. The internet is very poor and useless. No interner in both rooms and reception refused to change our rooms.
