Exceptional 10.0
Exotic stay
Great place to stay to see the stone town. At the busy port, watching the exotic walk past, Great bedroom with balcony overlooking the sea. lWarm and helpful service from all the staff.

Very good 8.0
Decent hotel in old style
Decent Hotel with old interesting interior style. Smaller than sister hotel Tembo, but very similar in style. Paid 145$ for a family room facing the pool. AC either on or off, no remote. Safe by the reception. Breakfast was said to start 07.00, but service slow and all things up and running by 07.20-30. Quite good restaurant, but we recommend 6degrees or Luk-Mann f.ex.

Great hotel for exploring Stone Town
I enjoyed my stay at Mizingani Sea Front. The room was large and very comfortable. Checkin was easy and quick. Breakfast was included with my room and consisted of a buffet and egg station. All the staff were friendly. Pool are was nice and felt great on the hot days. Location was walking distance to most of the things I wanted to see and convenient to the ferry dock.

Exceptional 10.0
Great place, close to ferry
This is a great place to stay for many reasons. Firstly it has that old world Zanzibar charm. It is an old building and its a bit creaky around the edges and occasionally a few things don't work, but it more than makes up for this in character and and charm. The staff are very helpful (sometimes a little too much as one of our bags went to the ferry port without us - quickly resolved to profuse apologies). Secondly - location. It's very close to the ferry terminal - less than 5 minute walk, has great views of the harbour and is close to the fort and one the edge of the old town. Likes: Charm, character, staff, location, breakfast overlooking the harbour. Dislike: It's a little rough in places which some people might not like, but for me this adds to the charm Try it. It's an experience. Zanzibar is becoming more sanitised and this is a reminder of what was when I first started coming here 20 years ago.

Good 6.0
Average hotel in great location.
Great location and super friendly staff, however these are a few things we didn't like: Super hard mattress Very slow WiFi Slight smell in rooms Lots of bugs in room No sound proofing at all so we had a lot of noise come through the ceiling and walls. Food that we had from the restaurant was not great. Overall was ok, but I wouldn't rush back.

Why not
Good location for one night if one wants to explore Stone Town City. Furniture/Decor Transports you back in history. It is an event to stay there.

Good for a couple of nights
Small hotel on the waterfront.Not all rooms are the same size or shape. Try to get a room with a balcony overlooking the pool.These rooms are much quieter.The breakfast was just OK....lots of fruit, cakes,cookies,as well as some not items with eggs. Very clean
