Best coffee! (I usually prefer my own espresso over almost anything else.) Breakfast was fantastic, and the availability of lounging on the rooftop is fantastic. Very interesting setting in old Stonetown inside & out. A most enjoyable stay.

Beautiful old building with loads of charm. My room was comfortable and had everything I could need. They have a really nice roof deck. The staff were very friendly staff and it is in a good location. Really enjoyed my stay here!

The Coffee House is my favourite home in Stone Town - the staff is terrific and the rooms are unique and comfortable. AND the coffee is the best I've had in Tanzania! Definitely worth multiple visits.

Rooms are beautiful, but beware that the bathroom, though private, will probably be down the corridor. Breakfast included home made pastries and was outstanding. Location is very central, staff were nice
