Semi hyvä paikka. Stone Town uudella puolella.

Average hotel even by African standards
This is at best an average hotel, mostly maybe to factors outside of the staffs control or maybe not. + Friendly and mostly helpful staff. + Relatively cheap hotel if you book in time. + Located just outside of Stone Town with a nice 5-10 min walk through a narrow shopping street until you reach the area where you can see the sea. + AC in room. + Hot shower water. - Lack of amenities. No hand soap in the bathrooms, few towels (you can ask for more which they will provide), you can't get an extra quilt etc. - Lots of mosquitoes, especially in the hallways, maybe because it was so moist there. We stayed on the first floor and the hallway felt like a bathroom after a long hot shower. Each bed has a mosquito net though. - Unfresh rooms. Our bed had lots of dead mosquitoes on the bed roof. The glasses provided for tea/coffee together with the water boiler was smudgy and dusty. - The hotel breakfast is awful! Few options and everything taste like it came from the local factory. The staff also takes forever to bring out refills, cutlery, plates etc. when things run out. If you stay here make sure you find somewhere else to eat your breakfast. Or just go for a brunch or early lunch in Stone Town instead. Some rooms are tiny, so if you are staying more than a night or two make sure you get a big room. All in all if you can do without a good breakfast and withstand the mosquitoes then the hotel is alright for a couple of nights stay.

Sehr empfehlenwert! Großartiges Team!
Nachdem uns das Jafferji House einen Tag vor Sylvester trotz bezahltem Zimmer einfach abgesagt hatte, hat uns dieses kleine Hotel willkommen geheissen und uns auch direkt ein kostenloses Abendessen und eine Dachterassen-Sylvesterparty spendiert. Das Team ist außerordentlich bemüht und herzlich. Die Zimmer sind schön und sauber. Wir hatten alles was wir brauchten. Frühstück gab es reichlich auf der schönen Dachterasse. Wem es nichts ausmacht, 10-15 Minuten (zu Fuß) nach Stone Town zu brauchen, dem empfehlen wir dieses Haus definitiv weiter.
