    - the three wheel transport mode i enjoyed those rides. - Stonetown buildings are a vintage but lacks maintenance, it makes the area look a bit untidy. Also the rusted roofing or corrugated sheets makes the aaerial view not beautiful. Painting them and the buildings will bring an added beauty to the image of stonetown.

    Friendly people with a lot of places to visit. However there is a lack of food prices diversity. Most good food is somehow expensive and the cheapest food was bad. However my favourite place to eat during evening was at the small restaurant near the Mkunazini Anglican Cathedral where delicious rice dishes are served. Couples can enjoy the tours to Prison Island and around Stone town

    I sailed as a sea captain all around the island, including Pemba island. I spent here almost 2 months altogether. From tourist places, I liked Nungwi beaches. You have to know, most of tourist resorts are situated outside of local civilization. If you want to go shopping or to the local restaurant, you need to order a taxi everytime and the prices are high. The food and alcohol is quite expensive even for europeans. The locals are kind, although sometimes annoying if they are selling something. I felt absolutely safe, more than in EU. Traffic in the inlands is terrible, try to avoid travelling on these roads. Negotiate the price (taxi etc) before drive. They are able to ask 50 USD for 3 kilometres of ride after. If I could decide, I would try another exotic islands. Zanzibar needs 5-10 years to improve the services for tourist, infrastructure etc.

    Navigating Zanzibar City was surprisingly easy, with an array of transportation options available. The compact size of the city made it convenient to explore on foot, with many attractions within walking distance of each other. I would definitely suggest trying the local Swahili food for fresh fish and seafood. For a visitor from South Africa, I found the price of food and drinks at restaurants relatively expensive.

    It‘s always good to have an AC and towels at the pool. The beach and city center (night market) is really near to the hotel. The pickup from the airport was on time and well organized. The staff is friendly and we could text them months before arriving with any questions. The breakfast was good: juices, fruits, fresh omelettes and crepes, cereals and even hot food like potatoes. We were at the apartements in another house near to the main hotel. If you need the beach and the pool nextdoor, remember to book the main hotel.

    We stayed at the hotel after our flight from France as we felt it was useless to drive one hour to our holiday destination late in the evening. The hotel is located two minutes drive away from the airport. Staff was very welcoming and pleasant, room comfortable with a very nice bed, great bathroom with italien walk in shower, nice terrasse and pool area. A great hotel for a night after or before your flight or if you want a modern hotel in Zanzibar city with easy access to Stone town. Very good value for money.

    This place is close to everything in Stone Town, I would recommend this place to everyone traveling to Stone Town. The hotel is at the beach as well. The rooms are nice, clean and spacious. Also the people working there are really nice, they helped us so much when a taxi driver tried to scam us and talked to the police for us. (Special thanks to Said). We felt really safe at Tembo. Me and my friend stayed in the apartments, a 2 minutes walked from the hotel, but you can still use the hotel facilities.

    Breakfast was fine; a buffet, with enough food and enough variety. The restaurant was very pleasant, semi-outdoor setting by the swimming pool, in the garden. The hotel is very attractive, and located in Stone Town which I really liked. However, this meant that the last 100 metres to the hotel were on foot, which was a bit of a surprise on arrival. Luckily it was not raining at that time.

    Perfect location on the beach in Stone Town with all the amenities you need. The staff were very helpful. The decor is lovely and we enjoyed two pools. The breakfast selection was expansive. We had a big family room in a nearby building with a bathroom that was huge. On the last day, we stored our bags at the hotel while we did a morning tour of Prison Island. Great place to stay.

The hotel restaurant is right in the pool and garden grounds area. It's a quiet, cool oasis within the city. Restoration of this historic property is impeccable.
