Zanzibar Coffee House

Zanzibar City

Located in Zanzibar City, the unique and historical Zanzibar Coffee House offers individually designed rooms and suites. It features a coffee shop and a roof top terrace, overlooking Stone Town.

The rooms combine old-world charm and antique details with modern conveniences. Each room is fitted with a ceiling fan and a four-poster bed, draped with a mosquito net. Free WiFi is available. Staying at the Coffee House Hotel was just wonderful! Rooms are decorated in original Zanzibari style with big four-poster beds, staff are very charming and breakfast on the rooftop is a highlight! The location in the middle of the old town is very nice. The very lovely and always busy café on the ground floor adds to a nice atmosphere and serves wonderful coffee and cakes all day. I recommend highly!

Mamamapambo Boutique Hotel

Jambiani

Mamamapambo Boutique Hotel is situated in the seaside village of Jambiani on the southeast coast of Zanzibar island. The hotel is built directly on the beach and is surrounded by lush vegetation.

Each room is decorated in an ethnic style and has a large 4-poster bed draped in mosquito nets and has a patio. The spacious bathroom includes a large shower. The Hotel was very very nice with only 6 rooms. So it’s very familiar. The manager asked us every day if everything is ok. He was very attentive and friendly. Also the staff was so friendly and courteous. We had Room 1 with sea view and it was perfect. The room was so nice, with everything what you need. We had a small dressing room, a king size bed which was very cozy but a little bit short (I‘am 1.75 and I think the bed was 1.90), a big bathroom with two washbasins, a very nice terrace with two chairs and a nice hammock. In the night you can fall asleep with the sound of the sea. The room was perfect!! The breakfast was incredible delicious, first every day a different kind of fruits or fruit salad and after that you can choose between Omelette or different kinds of very lovley oatmeals. For drinks fruit juice, coffee, and tea. 3 minutes away from the hotel there is a small shop where you can buy Drinks, Cookies or some other stuff (if you leave the Hotel, you have to go left and where the big palm stands you have to turn right and after that left and there is a little Shop).

Mizingani Seafront Hotel

Zanzibar City

The bright, air-conditioned rooms feature Zanzibari décor and feature a private entrance. They come fitted with a seating area, mosquito net draped over the bed, a flat-screen satellite TV and a safe. The private bathroom come with a uniquely designed bathtub or shower. We had the seaview suite with a huge balcony looking over the promenade and Ferry Harbour. It was not noisy when using the fan or AC and the view is just great. The whole building is georgeous with its many stairs, floors and little courts. The pool area is the nicest we have seen in Stone Town and this new wing fits perfectly to the rest of the old completely renovated part. The service is very good and enjoying breakfast on the balcony of the restaurant is a good start. It is perfectly located for strolls in Stone Town and relaxing in the comfy pool area afterwards or during the hottest times of the day is just perfect.
