Fabulous place to enjoy while exploring Stone Town

by Gretchen B on 08 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

This is my third trip to Stone Town and I think I have now found the PERFECT place to stay. The price is reasonable, but the service is luxury. Frans' staff provide the attention to detail and responsiveness I expect in a top quality hotel in Asia, not the "nice try but not quite" one often gets in Africa. The rooms are beautiful and amazingly comfortable wit stunning Zanzibar beds and AC. The bar and restaurant are comfortable and accommodating. You can book any and everything you need and all ...

Great hotel

by Ellen H on 07 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

When you first drive up to the hotel, you think this cant be right, as it is situated down some of the very narrow streets, and appears to be in the middle of nowhere, although only a few minutes walk from the seafront. Once that big wooden door has been opened, you get a lovely welcome from the staff and management. I think that there are only 9 suites, three on each floor, ours was huge with a bedroom with a full size bed and a second bed, a huge "hall" area and a bathroom that was absolute...

An amazing hotel !

by janainley on 06 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

A very friendly and welcoming hotel. The management and staff went out of their way to meet our needs.

This hotel is in a central position and in easy reach to restaurants, bars, shopping areas and places of historic interest. When you stay here you really feel as though you ...

Amazing service

by FrmAtl on 04 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

The more we travel, the more I'm beginning to realize just how much we enjoy small boutique hotels. Amazing prompt service, friendly staff and great location. I would only caution you to be mindful of the steps.. they are steep and many. So, if you have bad knees or cannot walk up and down a bunch of steps, I would avoid this hotel.

2 nights in Stonetown

by Dunks_roaming_earth on 30 Dec 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Stayed at the Zanzibar Palace Hotel for 2 nights to see Stonetown before heading to a coastal resort. This is a very nice little boutique hotel run by the very helpful Frans and his team. The hotel is situated in an older building and, by virtue of that, it has an old world simplicity to it. Indeed, it has stairs and no elevator and wooden balconies (noted from other reviews), but these are features of the original building. The rooms are very nice, with individual touches and have air conditi...
