  : Authentic hotel with clean rooms & bathrooms.Location is quiet due to being out of the middle of Stone Town, however it's very close to the markets (you can walk a couple of minutes to reach anywhere you wanna go)Staff is friendly & the receptionist is very helpful & decent.Stay prices are good compared to nice hotels inside Stone Town.
  : Breakfast is a little bit expensive compared to what is being surved specially as it's charged out of the reservation.
