About Jacob's Inn
Thanks! You will receive an email as soon as the property has answered your question.
Jacob's Inn is located in the heart of the Stone Town, next to the Slave Market, ideal for sightseeing. We have seven guest rooms. The deluxe room has private bathroom, the other rooms have shared bathrooms. We can arrange for you airport pick up and tours (Stone Town, Prison Island, Dolphins) at a good price.
My name is Jacob Luande. I am Tanzanian, with degrees in business and administration and hotel management. I speak Swahili, English and Luo languages and like to meet people from all over the world.
The Stone Town of Zanzibar is a fine example of the Swahili coastal trading towns of East Africa. It retains its urban fabric and townscape virtually intact and contains many fine buildings that reflect its particular culture, which has brought together and homogenized disparate elements of the cultures of Africa, the Arab region, India, and Europe over more than a millennium.
