    My husband , myself and 14 year old son spent 3 nights at Tembo Hotel on first arriving at Zanzibar. This place exceeded all our expectations ! Our hotel room was across the road from the main building in an alley and it wax wonderful. We had 3 massive beds in a massive room. At night the streets were quiet and we felt 100% safe. The hotel is exceptionally clean and food very good and very good value for money. The pool at the hotel is lovely especially as you shouldn't swim in the sea water in StoneTown ( although beautiful ..due to sewerage running into the ocean. We were centrally located to take an easy trip to Prison Island (we booked online but don't bother doing that you can just book at hotel ...also book at hotel for anything else) We did a walking tour to stonetown including market and it was wonderful. Sometimes it rained a bit which was refreshing! We also loved walking to the little market just a few meters from the hotel. The hotel doesn't serve alcohol but you can have a nice beer on the beach directly next door ! There is an ATM just down the road from Tembo hotel. Make sure to draw cash there before you move on. Our wonderful find of Mama Mia just down the road from Tembo made the best coffee and sold the best Italian ice cream . I loved everything about Tembo Hotel and will definitely go back. Its so central we could easily see all is to see before we went off to the Beach resort for 4 nights ( kwenda rocks,,, beach bungalow!!) where we could just chill. I wouldn't want to travel from that side to Stonetown. There are other weird looking hotels. Defintely stay at TEMBBO !! Book shuttles through hotel ! there are some dodgy taxis who promises to take you somewhere at a cheap rate and once you get in the taxi they say it is further and more expensive. So book through the hotel ! They refer you to trusted drivers Enjoy !

    Everything was wonderful

    We stayed at the Freddie mercury apartment. The building is a little away from the main hotel and apartments. Would recommend staying at the hotel over the apartments. The feel is better.

    Great beachfront location in Stone Town. Fantastic for watching the sunsets and people walking by and all the boats.

    The location and stuff was amazing. The food was good too

    The value for money was not too good. There was no drinking water available.
