"Comfort like at home"
We stayed in Kisiwa house 20th of May to 25th of May. The hotel is located in stone town old resident area. Here you can see the daily life of people. The hotel room is reasonable big, the ceiling is around 4 meters high, this gives you a very spacious feeling. The house keepers came 2 times a day to tidy up the room, spray mosquito, turn on the air conditioner for the guests. I never experienced such a good service in any other hotel. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and always greet you with smile. They don't take tips which are left in the room, only if you put the tip in the tip box at reception, which is for all the hotel staff to share. The day we left, almost all the hotel staff came out to say good bye to us. We will never forget this place and will definitely come back!

"Great location and price"
Solo getaway for some r&r and beach time during a trip to dar es salaam. The price was goer felt for my needs. The hotel rooms are quite outdated and the bathroom could be described as dingy but they are all facing the beach and have great large balconies. Nice restaurant overlooking the ocean with mediocre food that they had mostly run out of. I wS consistently disappointed by the absence of items on the menu. Nice beach okay for swimming and located very close to stone town, the airport and ferry. I would stay again, key being to keep your expectations in check.

"Incredible lodge in an idyllic setting!"
My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights after a long safari in mainland Tanzania and 7 nights in the quiet, restful Michamvi. We wanted to stay close to Stone Town, but not in the center as we wanted to relax before the long flight home. Hakuna Matata did not disappoint - it was a beautifully kept lodge, respectful to the natural environment and showcasing the ancient ruins. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the bungalow we stayed in was stunning with a view over the private cove. One of our best nights in Tanzania was having a cocktail on the terrace overlooking the sea, watching thousands of bats fly overhead from Prison Island to Stone Town - a real spectacle! Can't recommend highly enough for a peaceful, luxury break just outside Stone Town.

"Jambo Zanzibar Hotel"
Initially booked for two days but extended to five as the weather meant it was impractical to try a beach elsewhere. Excellent base to relax and explore Stone Town. Arrived late so the cold towel and juice was a nice touch, the room was spacious and in excellent condition - hot water on demand, a luxury after Rwanda and the DR Congo. The staff were attentive and the breakfast a useful start to the day.

Warm welcome, with no problem getting into our room early. Staff were very apologetic that the top floor restaurant was closed that evening for a private function, but we were able to get up there for a coffee to admire the great view over the Stone Town rooftops.

"Really enjoyed it....."
I had a really good stay at the hotel, which has an excellent location right on the water front in Stone Town and literally close to everywhere. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was excellent and very filling and you could take your time on the big balcony of the breakfast area just watching the Stone Town day getting started or the boats coming in. The only small minus, and it is really a small thing, is that the room seemed a little under furnished, A nice big double room with only one bedside table and no chairs not even a chair for the desk or a comfy reading chair. I wish I could have stayed on the waterfront side, but maybe next time.
