    The service... Especially our waiter Maneno which in swahili means words.. he was very nice and a person who you can easily talk to. The manager was on par, checking is everything was ok. Plus he spoke good english.. Nice views...! I love the seafood platter... delicious! Safari beer reminded me of Tusker. I would definately come back if i had the chance to! :-) To be honest I love the beds! Thats why i chose this hotel and the views! Decor was on par.

    Few of the waiters english wasnt on par and didnt understand when i asked for a menu. He kept askin "and you?" Which was kind of embarassing... :-( The room i was given was on the third floor under the rooftop restaurant and i specifically SAID i do not want a room near the restaurant and I was given just that. i was too tired to go down stairs and the kids were hungry. Please find a way not to make so much noise when cleaning up. But it was sleepable just slightly annoying. I showered with cold water me and the kids because had no idea where the heater was. Only to find it was behind the cupboard/closet when i was leaving. :-( But all in all.. it was alright!

    We arrived late at night. The staff was very friendly and courteous, they went out of there way to make sure all 6 of us (3 different rooms) were comfortable. They were quick to set up our activities.

    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.
