  : 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.

  : Great customer service
  : The price charged as an international traveler while I am a local whose price is half lesser. So I was overcharged as a foreigner while am just a local Tanzanian

  : Good location near the port, managed to find a quite good supermarket in 15 minutes. Very clean. Comfortable bed. Air-conditioning!
  : Need some renovation, particularly the bathroom fixtures. And it is very dark in the room :(

  : We came to this hotel not by choice but due to severe Booking mismanagement. We appreciated access to a room already 5h30 in the morning. And the breakfast terrace. Staff very friendly.
  : The room was equipped with a safe box. It did not function. The room was equipped with a refrigerator. It did not function. WIFI functioned now and then. The maid forgot to lock the door after cleaning. At checkout no one knew how to accept pay with a credit card. And when using a credit they charge 5% extra NOT INCLUDED IN THE CONTRACT. Shame on Booking.

  : It’s was quite pretty although I had asked for a room with a double and a twin and we got three twins. It was close to stone town.
  : The port has taken over the park across the street and they work 24/7. Clang, clang, clang all night long. Not good for sleeping.
