    Clean room and shared bathroom. My room didn’t have aircon, but the overhead fan was sufficient at this time of year(August). Staff was friendly and helpful. Lockers behind reception for valuables were handy. Great location in central Stone Town close to night markets and restaurants.

    Breakfast was ok. There were a few local options (spinach dish, and beans) which was great to offer, but I have since had better local dishes elsewhere. Could have been a bit more enticing with more of the gorgeous Zanzibar fruit? :)

    The location is fantastic...an easy walk from The ferry terminal and in the midst of many shops and restaurants. The breakfast varied day by day and was good value; plus it was served from a rooftop restaurant with an incredible view. Sharon, who works there, was amazingly kind and helpful on the day the airline found my luggage.

    Bed bugs. I emailed the property to let them know, but they never emailed back. There were some things off with my room that they didn’t fix and weren’t interested in hearing feedback about (such as only one bed having a blanket and that being under the bottom sheet, the idea being that I would think to look beneath the bottom sheet on an empty bed and take it from there—despite there not being blankets on the other beds—and that the cleaning ladies would remake it, despite the fact that in three days no one ever did come to clean my room). Bed bugs do not come from lack of cleanliness, and I don’t feel the room was unclean, but inattention can make the problem grow. And they are no joke.
