Clean and comfortable room
The internet is so baddddddddd and so weak unfortunately 😞
The check in by Sarah was just amazing, I arrived late and shortly after I checked I called her because i want to change the room because of the noise coming from street and she was helpful, The stuff at the sunset bar are so welcoming they made my stay is just perfect especially the young man his name is Rico!!!! The Hotel is perfect the location is great everything is walking distance. I’ll absolutely stay there again 🤩

Need to remove old carpets, clean and paint.
Nothing good in this hotel. Bad smell in the room. Very old bed sheets and towels and dark room no reading lights.
The African House is an awesome unique historical place right at the beach with really friendly staff.
Toilet got blocked, the cash speedpoint was not working had to withdraw cash to make payment.
It is sea facing and conveniently close to all main attractions
Good hotel with good location, best place to stay in zanzibar. The restarant is amazing💖
i like all the food, bed also charming staff
Quality of the room
Beautiful historic hotel in a convenient location for tourists.
the lack of a lift but the building is very old
A great building with a lot of history in a stunning and convenient location. The view from the rooftop bar is amazing.
A coked up clown kept us up for most of the night. Red marble and Tanzanite don’t mix.
What was once a beautiful building has since been desecrated by adding a tacky Tanzanite shop in the lobby, dressing up the venue with out-of-place Chinese artefacts and lights, ripping out the beautiful marble staircase which has a huge historical value (Queen Elizabeth and the last Sultans of Zanzibar walked those steps) and were replaced with horrible red fake marble... The guest next door to us was a coked up backpacker whose arguments with the two underage prostitutes he was soliciting we could hear crystal clear. It was left to us to calm down this idiot so we could get at least an inkling of sleep. This resulted in him trying to kick our door in at 2 o’clock in the morning. Luckily we are not easily shaken and the coked up clown was unsuccesful. The apology we were offered by Africa House was “it won’t happen again”. This was certainly obvious as we only had a one night stay.
The location in Shanzani street was nice.
