The staff were very friendly and helpful; the location (at the edge of Stone Town) was great. Only glitch was the shower head being faulty, causing an unexpected and painful scalding. Was immediately fixed upon reporting it to staff, though.

Not staying here again!
Got my room and the electricals were not working. The kettle and fridge in the room were not working. Even the safe didn't work.I tried plugging in my phone at all outlets but none of them worked. Called room service but no one came so next morning, I went down to complain. They said they didn't have another room but I insisted on moving to a better room. I was finally moved to the other room after much persistence. During check out, I was charged $4.00 more so I asked and the man at the front desk said I should tell my friends to pay $4.00 less on their bill coz I got charged the $4.00. I was shocked by his answer but didn't want to argue with the man as there were more people lined up behind me. When my friends checked out of the hotel and were paying their bill, they were being charged $20.00 more. After checking their restaurant bills, it was obvious that other room restaurant charges were being charged to my friend's room. Restaurant bills from other room charges had their room numbers canceled and were being charged to my friend's bill. Even the name on the charges of the bills was not my friend's name so it was obvious that wrong charges are deliberately being charged to the rooms with lots of restaurant bills as most people don't bother to check and just pay their bills. After much arguing, the man at the front desk finally decided to waive off the $20.00.

A little gem in Zanzibar.
Excellent location to the town,opposite the ferry terminal/harbour. Staff were excellent from check in to maintaining and cleaning the room. The drinks on the rooftop bar were great after hot day sightseeing.

Great location. Rooms on the smaller size, however just what we needed. Aircon worked well and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The rooftop bar was a highlight with views of the sunset.

Best Western simply the Best!
We really enjoyed ourselves... The service was great from airport to the hotel.. Warm welcome, our rooms, the staff... We were a handful but the staff was very accomodative. For breakfast i would suggest they do buffet, even if its not every day.. The Excursion desk was very helpful we managed to visit various places including the nightclub... Which completed our visit perfectly so. Thanx.
