  : The location was decently close to Stone Town. The cool room was a good respite from the heat and humidity.
  : The overall state of the B&B was so so. Older building with persistent smell of sewage on the top floor. For the price, the breakfast including instant rather than freshly brewed coffee in a country known for coffee and spices was disappointing to say the least. Some of the staff were knowledgeable about tours, but the pricing of packages was inconsistent and we got different answers from different people. Some staff didn't have a clue about what was available or which packages would best suit what we were seeking.
