Lovely hotel in a perfect location
Amazing location to explore Stone Town. Lovely staff, only too happy to help. The deluxe rooms are a great size, and right by the pool. Pool is quite small, but perfectly good enough to cool off in the afternoon sun! Overall a really good stay here, thank you Forodhani

Very good 8.0
Location and hotel itself was good. Comfortable and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Not much variety for breakfast. Pool is more like a large hot tub for lounging rather than swimming.

Great Overnight Stay
Had a great time at this hotel. The concierge helped me by calling a guide to the hotel to negotiate a few tours (no tours are officially run out of the hotel) and advised me on a wonderful lunch spot. The rooftop pool, while small, was very relaxing after a long day. The location in Stone Town was close to everything. The breakfast buffet was very nice the next morning with the ripest mangoes I've ever eaten.

Sadly pool or terrace were not available for use due to the refurbishment which were mainly whole purpose of me choosing this hotel. So slightly let down not knowing of this detail. Otherwise location, breakfast and service were great.

One night
Had to change to one of their other hotels because the air conditioner and toilet was broken. Forodhani Park, Dhow Place and Mizangani Sea Front are all owned by the same people and nearly identical inside. We changed to Dhow Palace but the swimming pool there was under maintenance and we really wanted a hotel with a pool. Otherwise hotel is clean, well decorated and has strong AC. Forodhani Park is easier to find than Dhow palace.

Great location
Great location. Room was big and fairly comfortable although the aircon wasn't hugely effective. Staff seemed a bit preoccupied and seemed more interested in trying to sell tours and taxis than anything else. Breakfast was very basic.
