Stone Town hotels

Hotel Zanzibar Emerson SpiceEmerson Spice Hotel
This boutique hotel in the heart of Stone Town is an experience in itself with unique rooms, antiquities and carefully planned food. Each room is different, and many of them have balconies so you can follow the life on the street below. Wonderful Violet has balconies on three sides with sofas, plants and hammocks. The problem is that you do not really know how to do: stay and look down or be on the street and look up.

Kholle House
This boutique hotel is located in a quiet and charming area in Stone Town. The house is filled with carefully selected antiques following the spice route to Zanzibar. A la carte breakfast and a feeling of being at home – we like a lot.

House of Spices
This small and well-kept boutique hotel is blessed with the best restaurant in town. Great decor and lots of antique details to discover. Wonderful staff.

Stone Town Cafe Bed and Breakfast
Stone Town Cafe is a meeting place for locals,  expats and tourists and there is always an ongoing meeting  with laughter. We like the food and the location on the shopping street Kenyatta Rd.
