Every room unique

"...every space magical."


Seyyed Room

Seyyed’s main theme is the regal grandeur of the room and reflects the stately nature afforded to the Sultans.

In keeping with this theme the Sultans’ royal seal is used as a decoration on the bedcover and also on a chair and the colours of Omani red accompanied with gold underline these qualities.

Guests enter a richly appointed sitting room with a magnificent teakwood credenza and Bordeaux red drapes which flow from one end to the other of this large suite lending a feeling of richness, extravagance and power worthy of the Sultan who brought the Bordeaux red colored flag to Zanzibar as it s national flag.

Ornately carved wooden windows provide for an intimate retreat from the bustling neighborhood below. Through an ample archway lies the bedroom area with a beautiful brass bed with luxurious netting trimmed in gold and red. The bath is semi open with a large stone bath beyond the bedroom area.

This room is large light and airy with rows of windows along the east and west walls. Guests may open the windows for a beautiful sea breeze or take advantage of air conditioning and ceiling fans for cool comfort high above the streets of Zanzibar.

This hotel totally captures the spirit of Stone Town
Quirkily charming this former palace has retained it’s character. This hotel totally captures the spirit of Stone Town–it’s history and its culture. Our room at the top (North) had great view of the rooftops, an outdoor (but private!) shower, and most amazing of all–and air-conditioned (as well as mosquito-netted) bed!
Lovely sunset ocean view
We stayed in the Blue room, which was beautiful and had a large tub and sitting area. Our friends stayed in the North room, which had a lovely sunset ocean view on a private terrace and open-air tub. You can have breakfast in your room for no extra charge.

This Stone Town Hotel was beautiful
The hotel was beautiful and the staff are beyond attentive and friendly. They truly think of everything from environmentally conscious soaps, to separate beach towels. The rooms are very clean and the historical architecture and furniture truly complement the mystery of Stone Town.  When we checked out, they gave us a room to use for shower and lounging for the full day at no extra charge. We were so impressed with their hospitality.

Dinner on the roof was delicious
The Spirit of Stone Town… Dinner on the roof was delicious–accompanied by local musicians and an amazing sunset. And the service was outstanding–including free laundry and access to our fantastic guide Simai, he is a treasure!
