The Seyyida Boutique Hotel


... is located in Stonetown on the west coast of Zanzibar Island off the Indian Ocean Coast of Tanzania.

Opened in early 2010, this small boutique hotel is well situated in the Kiponda area, behind the main palaces at the front of the old town.

There are seventeen decent rooms with contemporary decor, giving quite a fresh feeling but perhaps lacking the authenticity offered elsewhere. On the rooftop there is a pleasant restaurant offering views across to the House of Wonders and the ocean beyond.

The Seyyida Boutique Hotel is a decent little place, but one which perhaps oversells itself slightly, leading to a slightly mixed bag of guest reviews.

The main annoyances relate to maintenance issues in the room and the high prices for drinks.

Perhaps worth considering in this price range when the higher rated Kisiwa House is full.
