    The location, history and decor of the hotel. Read the stories posted outside each room as it offered a nice glimpse into a colourful past.

    Unfortunately we didn't have the best experience with the reception staff and upon reading old reviews, this was not a one time occurrence. We didn't quite get her name but she was extremely rude, unwelcoming and thought it would be a good idea to have an attitude problem whilst we were trying to deal with the payment. Remember this whoever you are, you only get one chance to make a first impression and shouting at us like a fish wife in the market is not the way to go. Our second experience was in the evening with the man on reception with whom we booked a taxi to the airport. He was busy counting out cash (which you should not do so out in the open, given that your reception area opens out onto the public street) and made it very clear that we (paying guests) were bothering him with our request. With a huff he attended to us, also with an attitude problem and proceeded to get our pick up time wrong, twice. Rude reception aside, we got a bit of a surprise when we noticed a few cockroaches running around the bathroom floor and sink area, questionable health standards. Oddly enough, we can deal with the cockroaches, but the rude reception staff? No thanks, we'd rather stay somewhere else than deal with them again.

    Quirky is a word that I would use to sum up Stone Town and especially this hotel. There is a real sense of stepping back in time in Stone Town and despite some 'shabby chic' appearance and need of renovation, there are gems of original features and exotic decoration. Wooden staircases and richly coloured walls combine with wooden shutters and brass trimmings to create a feeling of how the Town might have looked in its heyday. This hotel captured all that wonderfully.

    Our antique bed could have been a little longer - maybe they were shorter back in the day?!

    Location is in the heart of Stone Town and hotel itself is decorated in a very interesting way. One of the most special room I've ever seen. Breakfast on the terrace with view was nice as well.
