    Beautiful decorated townhouse right in the centre of Stone town. Breezy roof terrace with stunning views on the House of Wonders and the harbour.

    That the reception wanted to charge 4% extra for the use of Visa card. That is an issue between visa and the hotel. I asked for a second croissant and was denied. A bit funny if you ask me.

    The location was good. The room decor was lovely. The ambience was good.

    We were given a room right below the kitchen and couldn’t sleep the first noise due to the noise. The next day we asked to be shifted and it was fine.

    The location, history and decor of the hotel. Read the stories posted outside each room as it offered a nice glimpse into a colourful past.

    Unfortunately we didn't have the best experience with the reception staff and upon reading old reviews, this was not a one time occurrence. We didn't quite get her name but she was extremely rude, unwelcoming and thought it would be a good idea to have an attitude problem whilst we were trying to deal with the payment. Remember this whoever you are, you only get one chance to make a first impression and shouting at us like a fish wife in the market is not the way to go. Our second experience was in the evening with the man on reception with whom we booked a taxi to the airport. He was busy counting out cash (which you should not do so out in the open, given that your reception area opens out onto the public street) and made it very clear that we (paying guests) were bothering him with our request. With a huff he attended to us, also with an attitude problem and proceeded to get our pick up time wrong, twice. Rude reception aside, we got a bit of a surprise when we noticed a few cockroaches running around the bathroom floor and sink area, questionable health standards. Oddly enough, we can deal with the cockroaches, but the rude reception staff? No thanks, we'd rather stay somewhere else than deal with them again.
