Beautiful and exotic hotel!

Posted May 23, 2017
Spent two nights here last week. The rooms were all different and each one lovely. Beautiful antique furniture, great Arabic influenced details, nice bathrooms. The hotel staff was helpful in making tour recommendations, restaurant reservations and travel arrangements.

It was a wonderful that felt very authentic. It was close to the city, and you can wander around from this central location. I recommend it to all.

Cool hotel right in Stonetown

Posted Mar 18, 2017
Boutique hotel near many sights and shops, nice roof top restaurant. All the rooms are different and beautifully decorated. This place is great- except for the Internet, which barely worked while there.

Historical hotel in Town Stone

Posted Feb 22, 2017
Pros: Traditional location
Cons: The ACs could be improved in the rooms. However the staff was reactive and upgraded us to a large charming suite (Jafferji Suite)
Jafferji Hotel is located within a traditional zanzibari house, with interior courtyard, and crafted wood decoration. It is located within the old city but only 5min walk away from the beach front. Close to all touristic spots within the city.

Amazing spacious room in the middle of stone town.

Posted Jan 30, 2017 on Hotels
Amazing spacious room. We stayed in the spice room. Great location. The AC kept the room nice and cold, super nice, specially when coming back from a Stone Town walk about. Wifi though was extremely slow, and that's when it was working. Also just one channel was working properly on the TV. Overall loved our stay here! Would definitely come back if Wifi was faster.
