This is a great hotel. Zanzibar Palace Hotel is a nine room boutique hotel in which Zanzibar's rich history is integrated with Arabian, Indian and English designs in combination with all modern comforts. Each room has its own unique decor with many locally originating antique pieces of furniture, magical beds, Persian rugs, colourful silks, etc. The hotel has quickly become one of our favourites if you wish to stay in the centre of Stone Town.
Zanzibar Palace Hotel
There is a lovely homely feel to this place as it is run by the owners, a Dutch couple, Co and Frans. The establishment has all the mod cons you hope for while still ensuring it retains all the charm of a traditional Stone Town accommodation. It has a restaurant with excellent food and a lovely subtle Spa which is a great way to relax after a day of touring this ancient city.
The spacious suites and rooms are all named and completely unique. The decor in each reflects a different aspect of Zanzibar's rich cultural heritage, whether it be Swahili, Arabic or European and each affords different views of Stone Town - the best view being from the open private deck belonging to the suite on the top floor.
All activities in Zanzibar can be organised from Zanzibar Palace, which is conveniently located very centrally. So whether it be a spice tour or colobus monkey spotting in Jozani Forest National Park that interests you, The Zanzibar Palace Hotel is a great base from which to explore the island and the various experiences that it has to offer!
