    Cheap hotel amazing rooms but rather back end of stone town. Good wifi. Great for our 4 night stay exploring the town! Staff are friendly too, the lady serving breakfast seems to do it all on her own and she is great!

    Staff were so friendly, rooms are spotless, breakfast is good, great location easy to walk to ferry terminal or forodhani or darajani. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would reccommend to anyone who needs a clean comfortable hotel for a bargain price

    Hello! We (3 guys, 2 girls between 22 and 34 years) are searching for any accomodation in stown town from this saturday (Feb, 14th) to sunday (Feb, 15th). I couldn't find any contact details, thats why I wrote my request here. We just need a cheap and clean place to sleep with mosquito nets. 2 Double Bed Rooms with one extra matress in one of the rooms would be fine for this one night! Please answer to my mail Adress ScheiblG@gmx.at and tell me the full price for all 5 of us! Thanks, Gerald
