“A taste of the real Zanzibar at this rambling Stone Town palace. Rooms full of typical Zanzibari furniture and antiques, and have verandahs that overlook the rooftops and the Indian Ocean beyond. Fabulous roof top bar and restaurant. A Zanzibari romance. ”

Hotel Review

Don't expect sophistication at this rambling 19th century palace in the heart of Stone Town. Full of typical Zanzibari furniture and antiques, rooms have open-air bathrooms and verandahs that overlook the rooftops and the Indian Ocean beyond. You're paying for the sheer romance of the place, from waking up with the call to prayer at first light to sipping a cocktail at the rooftop bar during sunset.
