  : Breakfast was good but nearly always we had to wait that it would be ready. Most of staff was very friendly.

  : 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.

  : We booked a seaview room but when we arrived and paid for the accommodation the reception lady said that the room is already busy. They offered a bigger room though. There wasn't hot water available even though they have a heater. The room was dirty, in the bathroom we found remainings of someone's hair and so on. They offered no shampoo, no shower gel, only a soap. Instead of the sea view you will see just unattractive rooftops of the nearby buildings. The so-called restaurant is just an open area with tables dirty as the rest of the hotel and they surve no food, breakfast only. The surrounding is a bit tough (port area and container terminal but close to the center (10 minutes walk, Stone Town is a small city). I would rate this accommodation fairly at 20 USD max but not 50 USD that we had to pay. The stuff is helpful but when we talk about dirty room and no hot water for 50 USD it matters not unfortunately. Extremely disappointed.
