116 Shangani, Stone Town, Zanzibar City Tanzania
Al Johari means the Jewel in certain translations of Kiswahili and Arabic, and we invite you to experience the Jewel of Stone Town, Zanzibar. Al Johari is a small 15 room Boutique Hotel in the Stone Town area of Zanzibar, and was the result of a careful refurbishment combining two ancient buildings in Stone Town to produce an exceptional hotel property while keeping within the Architecture and dimensions of Stone Town history with an emphasis on modern state of the art amenities as well as the opulent luxuries of the Omani, Persian, Indian and Swahili influences.

Hi there,We are 3 people and we are planning to book a room in your hotel on the 21st May, checking out on the 22th May(just one night), and we are wondering if you offer a "late-check out" as our flight back to our country is at 2:00 am on the 23th May. So Could we stay longer in our room on the 22th May till about 23:00 pm? Thank you so much, Daniel
"Is there a good room?!"
"I guess all rooms are small, please clarify and speak to the staff to get a bigger room. The staff was good."
"3rd Floor rooms have better view and you can move to the roof top to enjoy the beautiful sunset"
"Have your breakfast and meals on the rooftop at the lounge - the view and breeze is amazing"
"Round-the-clock wifi only available at reception area."
US$67 - US$122 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
