The staff was good, the room was very nice, clean and very authentic. Location was perfect.
We arranged the pick up service and they did not show up at the airport. Being first time in Africa and get this welcoming, for sure is not nice.
Overall, I had a great stay and the venue. The staff is friendly and incredibly helpful. I would definitely book at this hotel again. Reception can help with tours you might like to do and Emmanuel was kind enough to show me around after work hours. This was great considering that I was travelling alone.
The only thing I didn't like was the food in the restaurant. The breakfast was better but the supper I had the previous night was quite disappointing
Internet was very poor/ wasn't working, which caused difficulties in paying. Construction work going on outside the room until midnight. Very noisy. Room wasn't very clean, nor full towel set provided on first night.
The view from the restaurant rooftop made dining so much more enjoyable.
Location was great - right in the centre of Stone Town and next to the beach. Breakfast was good with a wonderful view over the town and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful - they assisted in tracking down my lost suitcase which was very much appreciated! The 24 hour reception was useful as I arrived during the early hours of the morning. The building is decorated beautifully so you really feel like you have stepped back in time.
Room was quite small (although perfectly formed!)
