Beautiful restored and refurbished Arabic “city palace”. Not direct at the the sea but very good located at the old city. Fantastic staff!
Hotel is very beautiful, has its own history. We had a beautiful room on the top, with wonderful view of city and sea. Room was very spacious and the shower with no ceiling really impressed us. You can enjoy sunsets on roof terrace, or observe city rooftops with a cup of tea. Also tried the pool, which was lovely. Breakfast was good. Location - perfect. Close to tourist agency, pharmacy, many souvenir shops and restaurants.
On our stay there were quite a few rains with wind, so there were some water leaking through wooden windows.
The hospitality and friendliness of the staff. The general running of the hotel.
Beautiful old building with interesting pieces of antique furniture, proximity to the historical center
Bathroom had a terrible smell, the room was quite small, breakfast was average with some of the food obviously gone bad, some of the personnel was friendly, others seemed like they were doing us a favor by working there, overall the warm hospitality we encountered everywhere else in Zanzibar was completely missing. Overpriced.
The view from balcony was very nice. The location is really good. We had issue with the hot water in the shower but they helped us by providing bigger room. All the rooms hav beautiful balcony with a swimming pool view. We had a room with two balcony. One with street view and another with swimming pool view. Will come again.
With a stay at Dhow Palace Hotel in Zanzibar Town (Stone Town), you'll be a 5-minute walk from Shangani Beach and 5 minutes by foot from Old Fort. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, a business center, and complimentary newspapers in the lobby. For a surcharge, guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle (available 24 hours) and a ferry terminal shuttle.
