I stayed here with my partner over Christmas and really enjoyed it. The rooms are nicely set up, the beds comfortable, the staff friendly and the food delicious! Would stay there again without hesitation.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it is a little gem. The manger Ali was lovely and looked after us well. The rooms are traditional of Zanzibar and the breakfast is lovely. Definitely a better choice than the chain hotels you can get there. Really reasonable price too.

Best place for Chai and pancakes. Sometimes they have good arabic cuisine (falafel, baba ganoush, etc) but other than that the food isnt mindblowing. Good place to relax and have a little something to eat though. (the spanish omlete and the avocado omelete arent bad either)

We loved this place. Its clean and central to everything you want in stone town. The owners Judy and Massoud were away when we went but their staff really looked after us. The breakfasts were amazing and the food was fresh and good. This is a simple place, it has aircon but its not a 5 star hotel. We loved...

Wonderful central location. Just walk out the door and your exploring adventure begins! Very helpful staff. Their cafe is at front entrance and all day meals. Rooms are very clean and comfortable with antique touches. I especially liked that it is a small hotel.

Spent 2 days and 1 night in Stonetown at the cafe/B+B. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay (wish it could have been longer!). The coffee was exceptionally outstanding! We were centrally located between the beach, slave chambers and great restaurants and shopping. Our rooms were spacious, clean, extremely comfortable and most importantly air conditioned! Hot showers were a treat following 2 months...

We did not stay here, but we did go twice for breakfast. Good value breakfast, with quick service and really nice coffee. Good spot to watch the world go by. My daughter loved the banana pancakes and the fresh juice.

The room was huge with a giant, comfy bed, a shower with great (hot) water pressure and a separate sitting area. What more could you want? The avocado on toast and banana milkshake were a tasty way to start the day.

I stayed at Stone Town Cafe and Bed and Breakfast for two nights and was really impressed. I had a large room on the second floor with a good hot shower, air conditioning, fan and beautiful carved Zanzibar bed. The staff were extremely friendly and approachable and they helped me to book transport for the next leg of my journey...
