  • 2.0.Poor

    Below any expected Standard

    This hotel in Stonetown Zanzibar is probably the least convenient and up-to-date Doubletree we have ever stayed in. The room smell like mould, the service is incredibally bad, the bedlinen damp and the food really poor.

    The staff were simply the best. Always greeted us with a smile and were always so friendly. Made our stay that little bit more special.

    The hotel is nice! The AC worked well, the WIFI was OK, but not great, the dinner was delicious! The workers were very nice and they went above and beyond! The only I didn’t like was that I paid for a breakfast buffet, but during the two mornings, it was served a la Carte and it was kinda slow. Other than that. I highly recommend it and if I come back to Zanzibar, I will stay there again.

  • 6.0.Good

    It is a very nice hotel in a great location. The staff were very friendly. The only major downside was the room we were given, room 009 was awful, a room right next to the service elevator, the staff cleaning closet on one side then out the window was the walking street and where the staff all sat and relaxed. There was no peace from either side. I was told the hotel was full so could not change. Not happy
