Kisiwa House Hotel Zanzibar

You are Here: › Kisiwa House

Kisiwa House Hotel in Zanzibar was beautiful and felt much more like a home than a hotel.

It didn't offer some of the amenities that big hotels offer such as a pool etc but it is much more intimate and personal.

The rooftop restaurant offers a spectacular setting and the food was delicious albeit not quite the standard I expected after reading some of the reviews on here.

The hotel is in the middle of Stone Town and therefore ideally located for sight seeing and a real haven to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city.

Tucked down a side street, the first thing you notice are the stunning Zanzibari doors, studded with brass.

The building has dark wood staircases up to a roof terrace restaurant, where you also have your breakfast.

Rooms have tall ceilings with fans and air conditioning and very comfortable beds with a wooden frame like a four poster and mosquito nets.

Yet we hardly noticed any mosquitos, despite normally being a feast for the beasts.

The hotel is perfectly located for walking around Stone Town - right in the heart of the maze of streets and alleys.

We did not do the spice tour, having heard mixed reports, but booked a private walking tour - and our guide Choum was excellent.

We will definitely be back
