"Lovely hotel, beautifully positioned."
Beautiful old style hotel with great rooftop bar. Excellent service. We had a really gorgeous room - I'm not sure all of them are like that. We didn't eat there but good restaurants in easy walking distance.

"Rich with history and Vintage Decor"
This is a great hotel in the heart of Stone Town. The staff is very accommodating and the location is convenient for exploring Stone Town and it's beaches. Some of the rooms have much better quality mattresses than others and I recommend seeking an upgrade if you find yourself in one of the rooms with a poor mattress - it's worth it. The view from the top of the building is almost 360 degrees and it's incredible day or night. Great breakfast in the morning and a beautiful pool to cool off in after wandering around the dusty streets. Would definitely stay again, but I'd insist on one of the nicer rooms. The architecture and d├ęcor is exquisite!

"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.

"Amazing place in Jambiani"
- the communication with the hotel owner was smooth - there were no unpleasant surprises waiting for us - everything in other reviews was 100% correct - we were picked up from the airport - the beach bungalow was ready and always clean - the staff was very nice and helpful - the breakfast served at the porch (nice view of the beach) - the beach was clean and accessible right from the bungalows (low tide - nice walks, high tide - water was 3m from the resort) - food and cocktails were very good in the blue reef restaurant

Hiliki House

Victoria Street, Zanzibar Town - Map
Hiliki House is a nice, relaxed place to stay within easy reach of all of Stone Town's sites and restaurants, but far enough away from the center to offer calm and quiet. The rooms, while simple, are comfortable with air conditioning, fans, mosquito nets and hot water. The breakfast was a real delight for me with fresh juice, plentiful coffee, tasty breads and a selection of fruit. The staff are kind and helpful. I appreciated the self-serve 'honor' drinks bar for those times I forgot to pick up some cold water. The house itself it quite beautiful and I felt the hotel was a good value for the price.

"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.
