Al-Minar Hotel

Plot 96 Shangani, Zanzibar Town - Map
"Beautiful hotel, perfect location"
This hotel is located right in the heart of stone town, everything in walking distance. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was delicious. The only problem was that the electricity went out for several hours at night making the room hot and uncomfortable to sleep in. But it was fixed the next morning.

"Perfectly positioned for exploring Stonetown."
We had a wonderful weekend, very friendly staff and great views from our veranda , it is unfortunate that road works are in progress directly in front of the hotel which was the only negative on an otherwise fantastic stay

"Intimate hotel in the heart of things"
We spent 9 days in this boutique hotel. It was lovely, our room was so cute with lovely touches from flowers on the bed on arrival to towels laid out in different style each day (even a heart to end our stay). It was beautifully turned down twice a day and made us feel so welcomed. Our room was lovely as a romantic as retreat and to get out of the madness of he markets. What truly made the hotel was the lovely, thoughtful, ever smiling and helpful staff. Those there morning until night working tirelessly to ensure our needs were met, from room service, freshly squeezed juices to providing a pandit when my partner felt unwell. They went above and beyond with even the guy there coming out to translate for us when our rental car was broken into. Neema, Jacq, Lucy were wonderful and full of smiles, jokes and warm welcomes. We were very impressed by our boxed breakfast when we had to leave for the airport at 3am and our wake up calls. Their evening restaurant was lovely and the chef really paid attention to detail with his food. My only issue at the hotel would be we chose the room that was on a busy noisier side (fine at night as the AC drowned out the noise) but the room was so lovely we didn't really mind. Perhaps good to have more guide books, points of interest knowledge and maps but I found all the amazing places to go from trip advisor to be honest. The location was perfect not too on the main road and near the markets.

"The hotel is located at the beach in stone town."
Nice hotel at the beach. Close to Fourdani park and shopping. Ok for a couple of days stay. Lacking good internet excess and wifi. Also styled in Arabic exposure. Not impressed with Bathroom and beds.

Protea Hotel by Marriott Zanzibar Mbweni Ruins

Mbweni, Zanzibar Town - Map
We only booked at this hotel because it is a convenient jumping off point for our trip to Chumbe Island Eco resort and we enchanted when we pulled up to this romantically lit " ruins" the evening of our arrival. The staff were without exception delightful, helpful and friendly. The restaurant is in a lovely setting and they were happy to move a table anywhere we liked. We would loved to have stayed longer and would definitely return if we have the opportunity.

"Nice hotel, with a great view on the ocean."
The staff are really welcoming. They is also available to you pool, table tennis, volleyball. It seems as though the people that come stay a long time because every seemed to know each other and very friendly. Sadly I stayed on one day, but if I had more time I definitely would have stayed longer. For sure my friend almost convinced me to take a few more days and she loved it too. I think I was pleasantly surprise cuz I wasn't expecting much for the cost. However, the hotel is far from everything and has only one restaurant to eat from. You have to hire a taxi to go anywhere, but taxis are not that expensive anyway.

    Zanzibar is calling — find the perfect hotel

    Everyone wants to score a deal on travel, but price is just one factor to consider when booking an unforgettable hotel. Whether you’re visiting family, attending a conference or taking a well-earned vacation in Zanzibar, having an awesome experience should be a no-brainer.

    Hotwire will hook you up! From restful nights near your flight to that prime spot in the city’s heart, we’ve done our research to bring the best options to your fingertips. Book your Zanzibar hotel with us now and start your next adventure.

    You’re not the average traveler — and we know it

    You’ve done your homework and know exactly where you want to go. We’re here to help with some Hotwire travel geek-approved tips on how to save on your booking.

    Get away for the weekend

    Hotels in bigger cities usually charge higher rates during the week, when people are traveling for business. Weekends can be a bargain! It’s the other way around for vacation spots, so if you’re looking for a beach escape, consider a mid-week trip.

    Give yourself some wiggle room

    If your plans are flexible, play around with some different travel dates – a shift of a few days either way can help you save big. Prices usually jump the weekends before and after popular holidays, so we recommend steering clear of them. Or consider visiting during the off-season, when prices are generally lower.

    Plan around big events

    Are prices surprisingly high? There might be a huge conference or festival in town. Consider shifting your dates if you can. Of course, if that’s why you’re going, you’ll have to bite the bullet. We’ll still work to get you the best rates out there.

    Noodle over new adventures

    Set aside time to plan what you want to see, taste and discover. Nothing completes a trip, big or small, like a few new experiences! Check city apps or area websites to find out what’s new and what events are happening during your stay. Even during a family reunion, you can detour to that locals-only fish taco stand or under-the-radar music club. Your cousins will be impressed.
