    The restaurant and bar were on the roof top terrace and it was fantastic with views across the city. Location was right in the heart of the old town. Staff were helpful and friendly.

    We loved the roof terrace with its great views over the sea. The restaurant was excellent with a good choice of food, and with friendly service. There is a small patisserie where you can buy snacks to have in your room in the morning or afternoon. The hotel was well run with very professional staff and the staff were also friendly and welcoming, keen to help.

    I liked everything. This is an excellent hotel, I recommend it to anyone going to Zanzibar

    The location in the middle of enchanting Stone Town and of course the lovely roof top terrasse. Stylish yet relaxed ambience. Friendly staff. Beautiful, bright rooms.

    Muzak on roof top terrasse at dinner time. Too loud for conversation and a truly uninspiring collection of Western hit songs.

    only location, but there are hotels close and less many. רק המיקום נורמלי, אבל יש עוד מלונות ליד לא פחות טובים וזולים יותר

    staff!!! also room is very small. very bad breakfast! nothing special, very high price! very very very noisy hotel!!!! this hotel close to the school, at 06:30 all students arrive and very noisy!!! בקבלה השרות שקיבלנו פשוט מתחת לכל ביקורת!!! החדרים מאוד קטנים ורועשים! שימו לב המלון נמצא בצמוד לבית הספר, כלומר בשעה 6:30 בבוקר תתעוררו מרעש אדיר של תלמידים! כמו כן ארוחת בוקר מאוד מאוד מאוד פשוטה ולא נעימה!!!

    Location and the roof top. Excellent maid service.

    Quilts are too heavy. Layers would work better. No comfortable chair in the room.

    Very nice hotel in an excellent location. Friendly and helpful staff.

    We found the Indian food we had at the rooftop restaurant to be pretty tasteless and a disappointment to an otherwise lovely stay.

    We loved the location. In the centre of Stone Town and the view from the top was great!

    The Breakfast could have been a little more varied - but not the end of th world - you don't go on holiday purely for the food!

    Loved everything about Maru Maru Hotel from friendly staff to clean rooms. It helped that the hotel is right in the centre of the city with easy access to taxis, restaurants, markets and the harbor!

    It was a short stop over before traveling to a conference in Arusha. Live music on the roof terrace on Friday night at sunset. Desk staff very helpful setting up my day trip to Nungwi Beach.

    The staff was amazing especially Adam, Diana and Khalifa. The rooftop bar has loud music on weekends so if you go to bed early ask for a room far from 4th floor. The restaurant staff wS very accommodating and made me off menu dishes

    There is a dumpster close by that can be seen from front of hotel. The trash is sorted in the mornings. They should try to get it moved. Wifi didn't pick up on rooftop.

    The location was very central and in the middle of the bazaars. The sunset from the terrace is very nice. Typical African architecture is very charming.

    It would be great if it was closer to the sea and had a small swimming pool because of the very hot climate of stonetown.

    Very clean. The location is in the center of Stone Town

    a bit filthy and neglected in the streets around the hotel. Breakfast could be richer. Not much variety.

    The beautiful terrace, the location, the room

    My luggage was lost in Dubai and staff didn't really help me with calling the airport and get information about it. When they called I had to pay the calls.

    Friendly staff, good rooftop terrace, clean rooms. Excellent Indian food served for dinner,especially the Peshawari naams.

    Trash located just outside the hotel (10 meters). No bathtube. Skewers were served with ketchup (bar snacks were not as good as the restaurant dinner food). No swimming pool.

    Simply the closest to the Old Fort where I attended 4days music festival. Very clean facility, friendly staff, good enough breakfast and nice view from rooftop. Wifi also worked perfectly (You get voucher every day for free)

    Not particular to mention. Overall it was good
