Jafferji House and Spa is a gem! We really enjoyed our stay with them. Our room (Massai) was super stylish, the breakfast was very tasty and the staff very friendly and helpful. I am very happy we stayed there. I would definitely recommend this place for your visit in Stone Town.

Rooms are so cozy and so beautiful. I like the style of this hotel it is very beautiful with its own unique atmosphere. Breakfast was very tasty really and rooftop view is amazing. Hotel by itself located in heart of old city , so close to everything. I recommend this place i really fall in love in this decoration. I recommend this place for couples and solo travelers .

This place felt authentic african style and very comfy. We felt like it was a great deal and happy all around. It is decorated in a non corporate, genuine way, and it felt good to be "home". The rooms were comfy and well air conditioned. We had no problem with mosquitoes and our stay was awesome. Special thanks to Peter for all his help during our stay. Highly recommend.

Our stay at the hotel went well and everything met expectations, except for the car rental we arranged through the hotel. The experience was bad. The car old was not safe, it was not possible to pay by card as we were told and we had to be taken to a withdrawal place where we paid a lot of taxes to withdraw. When we delivered back the car, staff was not friendly. Do not recommend renting a car through this hotel.

Beautiful hotel, perfect location, nice staff. Jafferji house is open and has very good deals. Best view of Stone Town from the roof restaurant (currently only breakfast). The rooms are spacious and very well maintained.
