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

Set in a substantial 1880's merchant's house deep with the maze of Stonetown, this mid-range hotel has 22 traditionally furnished rooms in three different specifications set over four floors.

The rooftop bar and restaurant is one of the finest in Stonetown and worth a visit whether you are staying here or not.

The Swahili House is, on the face of it, an impressive and authentic hotel offering good value for money.

But there are downsides. Some guests might find access difficult, especially at night when it is recommended to take a guide. Service can also be quite variable, with food, electricity and water supplies all having their up and down days ... although this is a feature of most Stonetown hotels.

If you want more reliability then you need to step up in price.
