Property Description

Accommodations - Our hospitality is based on good taste and warmth, comfort and style.The 16 no smoking rooms are all unique; the ground floor looks into the courtyard and has high ceilings, several have balconies, some have sea views, some have a living area or mezzanine floor, but all are enclosed in this original ancient palace with cool, thick walls, Arabian beds, stucco decoration and carved doors, bringing you the essence of old Zanzibar with a twist of modern chic.Because the hotel is converted from the wing of the old palace, there are no two rooms the same. Each has it's unique and stylish features, either original or added. The three general room categories that result from the imaginative use of the space are named after the three original areas of the old Stone Town nearby the palace, accessible from the hotel by foot along the narrow winding streets - Forodhani: the seafront, Shangani: the residential area, and Darajani: the market and bazaars. 4 Darajani rooms are between 20-30 sqm meters and have all facilities listed, with typical Zanzibar features and details. 5 Shangani rooms are more spacious, between 30-45 sqm, some have a small sitting area. 7 Forodhani rooms have further features such as sea views, mezzanine design, terraces, spectacular high ceilings or a courtyard balcony

"This has to be the easiest reservation I have ever encountered, as far as a group reservation anyway. When I made group reservations for my other daughter's wedding in Houston a few years ago, it was a nightmare! Wish I would have known about you then." Carolyn H. - Boston, MA
