Guest Score 10.0 out of 10
Loved the rooftop lounge and restaurant. The wait staff was fabulous Incredible sunsets over the Indian ocean. In fact all the staff were so friendly. The location in Stone town is perfect!
My electricity in my room went out 2 times in the middle of the night. Since the air conditioning would quit, I would wakeup very hot at 2 or 3am. This only happened a couple of times.

Guest Score 9.5 out of 10
1.Fabulous staff (Fiona, Hitesh, Combo, Emanuel, and all others) 2.Excellent location - close to everything 3.Great view from the rooftop restaurant and bar with excellent food and drinks 4.Perfect bed, pillows and mattress (the most comfortable one I've ever slept on), high-quality furniture. Someone with a great artistic sense must have designed the guest rooms and bathrooms 5.Overall, I think this hotel was almost impeccable in every major category. The price was so competitive, too.
The only negative, which was easily tramped by all other positives, was the noise. You hear the music band at night, and there was also some sort of construction work in wee hours, which woke me up a few times... But because the hotel is situated in the heart of Stone Town, guests can not expect perfect quietness, I suppose.
