This place is the best to stay just before going home or starting your adventure. The staff are so polite and nothing is a problem. The roof top eating is also of a good standard some western people might find the lack of bacon etc.a minus but that stuff's bad for you any way. The decor and furniture are out if the 1930s and in a good condition. Its a gem in a noisey, dirty town that can be so tiring to us westerners. Go and enjoy as we do the 4 times a year we are traveling to zan.

Top Local Tips for Zanzibar

Mercury Restaurant On the main beach front there is a restaurant called Mercury. This restaurant is a tribute to Freddie Mercury whom was born in Zanzibar and in general the theme works also the food is good.

Fascinating historical and colourful town Get a guide from your hotel, not on the street, its worth the fairly minor cost for 2 or 3 hours knowledgeable local guide to show you all the historical and fascinating places, House of Wonders, Fort, old slave market, Mercury's bar, the amazing indoor marketplace, etc, etc. Shopping is mostly small bazaar shops which can be a bit pushy but still polite, but on the main street near the post office not far from the Dhow there are some great aircond larger shops. Buy great Masai beaded wares, wooden carved bowls and wonderful fabrics, scarves, kangas,etc.
