We had just two nights at this hotel and what a delight it was. The rooms are just so atmospheric and unique it was like being in a Somerset Maugham story - just magical. And very nicely situated in Stone Town with access to everything....More

The Zanzibar Palace Hotel is very well located in the Old town area of Stonetown. It also has good nearby car access. The rooms are reminiscent of days gone by, but with modern comforts of air conditioning and bathrooms. The breakfasts and suppers were superior!

We stayed in this hotel with recommendation from our travel operators Tusker trails. This place was fantastic with old palace styled rooms. The staff were friendly and provided outstanding. Highly recommend this hotel as it is walkable to every destination in Zanzibar center.
