Zanzibar Palace Hotel

Zanzibar & the Coast

Rating: Mid-range    

Zanzibar Palace Hotel overview

Zanzibar Palace Hotel is a 9-room boutique hotel set in a restored Zanzibari palace in the heart of Stone Town, just a short walk from the sea front. The hotel is tastefully and authentically decorated in a mixture of Arabian and Indian designs, incorporating antique furniture, Persian rugs and colourful silks. The hotel nonetheless has modern conveniences such as air conditioning, free Wi-Fi and en-suite bathrooms.

All the bedrooms are individually decorated and unique in design. A strong mix of Arab and Indian influence is evident in the architecture and its spacious rooms are decorated in true Zanzibari style with colours and furnishings including majestic beds, lattice work shutters and well-equipped bathrooms. There are 2 luxury rooms, 5 suites and 2 large palace suites on the third floor with wonderful views. One of these has an open-air bathroom and sundeck. All rooms are air conditioned and have ceiling fans, mosquito nets, in-house 'phone, TV, DVD player, safe and bathrobes.

The hotel has a restaurant which serves a generous buffet breakfast each morning and a choice of dishes for lunch and dinner. Fresh seafood is a speciality (tuna, kingfish, prawns and lobster) but meat and vegetarian fare is also offered. The 'Sukinah bar and lounge is great place to relax over a drink and enjoy a chat with fellow guests. Other facilities include a DVD library, board games, 24-hour room service, laundry and a tourist information corner. The hotel is owner run and the helpful staff can speak English, French, German or Dutch. 

Excursions can be arranged to sites around Zanzibar. Many of Stone Town's best-known sites are in walking distance from the hotel and guests can relax after a day's sightseeing and enjoy soothing treatments including wraps, facials and massages. These are on a request basis as there is no permanent therapist in place, however, one can be booked at your convenience

Steve Todd

"Very comfortable hotel with very helpful staff"

"We only stayed overnight in the hotel, but the staff were very friendly and helpful, arranging an early guided tour of Stone Town to ensure we saw the sights in the short time we were in Zanzibar. The hotel itself was immaculate inside and we ate in the restaurant, it was fantastic, the best meal of our holiday!"
Ms. Nicola Jones
