Emerson on Hurumzi
, also known as 236 Hurumzi and previously known as Emerson and Green, is located in Stonetown on the west coast of Zanzibar Island off the Indian Ocean Coast of Tanzania.

It is a pioneering boutique hotel in the heart of historic Stonetown which went a long way to defining the modern Zanzibar style. Approached through narrow alleyways, it is contained within an authentic restored merchant's mansion, with a ground floor cafe, a total of 17 very individually-styled rooms and a stunning rooftop restaurant. There's lots to do here in town, including historic walks, shopping, restaurants, bars and various day trips.

The main potential downsides at Emerson on Hurumzi are that this is a chaotic and hectic town, with the potential for crime and it is easy to get lost. The hotel is very exposed to neighbours, has historically had variable levels of service and the potential for maintenance issues. Also, some rooms much better than others and there are lots of very steep stairs.
