Depending on your taste and choice you can choose between a more spacious suite room, a double room ensuite, a room with shared bathroom or a room with a private bathroom on the corridor. The rooms in the front of the hotel (Room of Wonder, Treasure Chamber -both first floor- and 1001 Nights -second floor) offer a nice view of the local life of the Zanzibarians.

Zanzibar is known as Spice Island. Peppers, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg are some of the many spices found on the island. For the people of Zanzibar, spices and useful plants are a vital part of everyday life and a rich element in the island's strong and vibrant culture. The tropical climate of Zanzibar makes it the perfect place for exotic flowers and fruits to grow. Jasmine is an exotic and aromatic smelling flower that grows in Zanzibar. It is used during traditional ceremonies such as marriage.
