Location, superb friendly service, comfortable bed, decent room and bathroom size, attractive decor.
Nothing. A perfect hotel for short stay in Stonetown. Wish we’d chosen this over a much more expensive one the week before!
Good location, nice atmospheric rooms, very good breakfast
Reception was not always available
Quiet location and yet less than a 10 minute walk from the centre of Stone Town. Good breakfast with a variety of fruit, breads and egg. Good taxi service (fair price) organised by the hotel for the next leg of our journey. Good boat trip (fair price) to Prison Island arranged by our hotel.
Check in/welcome was very rushed - having only just arrived in Stone Town we would’ve benefited from the host providing some information/map and a little more attention/warmth. Also limited explanation of aspects such as turning the water tank on for a hot shower. Safety deposit box was a loose wooden box with padlock and was removable so besides the point. Room had a damp smell. The secluded road which the hotel is on has no lighting at night so is very dark, something a solo traveller might consider.
really unconfortable bed, toilet is outside the bedroom even though it is private. Close to some minarete, so early in the morning you get woken up by the believers call for pray. Even though I love cats, here around it was full and they were in mating period ... so really noise ...
bed, shower floor (it broke and one piece enter into the skin of the toe, so we had to extract it and disinfect).
Pretty nice breakfast, very nice staff except for the one high guy.
Temporary manager (not the owner) was high and had a very poor attidude towards issues with our room. Our room had a strong moldy smell, that bothered us during our whole stay. The garden is not very nice.
With a stay at Hiliki House in Zanzibar Town (Stone Town), you'll be within a 10-minute walk of Christ Church Cathedral and Old Fort. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
