    Pool at Dhow Palace Hotel in Stone Town, Zanzibar

Dhow Palace is a small, simple hotel in the heart of Zanzibar's historic Stone Town. The hotel is a 19th-century Omani merchant's mansion that has been elegantly converted. Located down a quiet alley, just a few minutes' walk from the centre of old Stone Town.

There are 30 self-contained and spacious rooms, furnished with traditional Sultan-size 4-poster beds. All are ensuite and have air-conditioning, television, free Wi-Fi and minibars and are tastefully furnished with Zanzibari artefacts. Rooms in the old wing tend to have more charm and original character. All rooms have large balconies overlooking an attractive and cool central courtyard or the swimming pool. This creates a tranquil atmosphere, making the Dhow Palace a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of Stone Town.

The restaurant is in the main courtyard by the pool and offers a variety of seafood, local and international cuisine. Like its sister hotel over the road, Tembo House, Dhow Palace does not allow alcohol to be consumed on the premises, something that used to be the norm on the island. There's a roof terrace, perfect for quiet relaxation.

The Dhow Palace is an ideal base from which to explore the winding alleys, bazaars, and ancient buildings of Stone Town (a World Heritage Site).

Client Rating for Tanzania 5/5 from 217 reviews

Impressive renovated buildings in Stone Town, but hasn't lost its sense of heritage. Funky location for a swimming pool in the courtyard of one 'wing'. Well located and a nice retreat when the hurly-burly of the town gets too much. Helpful staff.
