"This place is fantastic"
Can't say enough about Hakuna Matata. Fritz and Rose are just a delight to chat with, helpful, and friendly. They treat you like family. They treat their staff that way too, which we really respect and appreciate. The location is perfect, close enough to Stonetown to get their quickly by cab, but charming and quiet in the mornings and evenings. The beach is a stones throw away, and the little tidal bay in front is an endlessly fascinating focal point. You can't imagine a better place to watch the sun set. H-M isn't cheap as places go, but I personally think it is a good value for the money, given the quality and level of service. We ate breakfast and dinner at the lodge each day. Breakfast menu is pretty limited if you are there for several days, but the dinners are fantastic every single night. You basically get what is being served, but be assured it will be top notch.

Al-Minar Hotel - Zanzibar Town Hotels

Al-Minar Hotel

Plot 96 Shangani, Zanzibar Town - Map
 
 
"Perfect Stone Town Base"
We loved everything about Al-Minar. The location was perfect - close to Forodhani Gardens and House of Wonders, only a couple of minutes from the beach and the road yet on a quiet lane. The rooms were beautiful and had everything we needed (and other things that we didn't!). Breakfasts on the rooftop terrace were great - omelettes cooked to order, together with fresh fruit and other hot food items that differed each day. The staff were wonderful. On the night we arrived they walked us to where we could find a restaurant that was still open even though it was late, and on the day we checked out they were happy to let us borrow towels for snorkelling on a Prison Island trip. Nothing was too much trouble. There is not one thing i would change, and I would definitely stay again.

"beautiful place with great people"
I highly recommend this beautiful, boutique, and affordable hotel located in a centre of Stone Town. I stayed there for 3 days in Dec 2012 in a Deluxe Single room. The room was small but very nice and clean, with beautiful bathroom, stylish furniture, hot water, TV (which I didn't have a chance to watch#, and perfectly working AC. The hotel itself is very beautiful with oriental interior, gorgeous paintings, and awesome rooftop restaurant which can easily compete with famous Hurumzi place.The waiters were very polite, smiling and very attentive, food is delicious #really mean it#. The staff at the front desk, especially Ali Salum, went out of their way to accomodate my every need. At one point, I complained about the noise from the street and I was immediately relocated to a different room. Moreover, my flight was in the evening #check out time is 12 noon) and, when I asked about any place to refresh myself, the let me use the massage room. Everthing was done with a smile and great attitude. It's an awesome place with great people. I thank you, guys, again, for making my stay in Zanzibar so pleasant!!! Thanks, Ali!!! Warm regards, Izabela

"Great location"
The hotel is just 2min walking distance from the port, museum, old fort, really nice location. Safe to walk around. Very big room and bathroom, furniture in colonial style so you feel like you are in a different world, nice decorations all over the hotel, really nice breakfast on the rooftop. I'm very fussy about the hotels so i'm really glad I stayed in this hotel.
