Zanzibar Palace Hotel

Located right in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stone Town is the Zanzibar Palace Hotel, a boutique-style hotel designed over 3 floors. As the hotel is centrally located, the Palace Hotel is perfectly located to see all the sights and adventures of Stone Town.. The hotel is independently owned and managed, making this a very individual place to stay with its blend of English, Arabic and Indian influences.

The Zanzibar Palace Hotel is styled around a central atrium, each of the floors have 3 rooms, making a total of 9 rooms only. The rooms are stylishly and individually decorated with local antique furniture and Persian rugs which gives the rooms a traditional feel. All rooms are fully air-conditioned, with mosquito nets, telephone, safe, DVD player and hair dryers on request. All rooms are, of course, ensuite.

As would be expected, the restaurant at the Zanzibar Palace, known as the Sea Grill, offers both top class menus and service. There is a wide choice of food including the speciality of the house, locally caught seafood. Also available are exciting meat and vegetarian dishes and the chef is always happy to prepare a meal to celebrate a special occasion. The bar at the Zanzibar Palace offers 24 hour room service.

The Zanzibar Palace Hotel also offers internet access, a DVD library, board games, a small library and a tourist information point.

Stone Town is the capital of the island of Unguja, more commonly known as Zanzibar and is a city of stone coral buildings and narrow alleyways. A historic place, there is much to see and do during a stay on the island. Why not take a walking tour through the cultural part of the city, a Spice tour or visit the Prison Island to see turtles and snorkel on the reef?

We love the Palace Hotel and all of our guests have had an enjoyable stay – Zanzibar Palace Hotel Website

    We spent a night here to look at Stone Town and indulge in retail therapy. The hotel is an old merchant house tucked amongst the back streets. Our room was good sized with a bath large enough for two, but a steep climb up the steps with no lift. Breakfast was adequate and the hotel service was excellent. The narrow streets were atmospheric but another time we would have preferred to stay at one of the hotels on the beach for a better view.
