Beautiful hotel, staff very friendly and good check in with welcome drink. Appreciated being told the history of the building. Room was cosy but expected in a period property. Loved the pretty turmeric bathtub and bath products in the room smell amazing! Close to night markets and 2 mins away from the ferry port. Ahsante!
We were told there would be a taxi booked to the airport for our early flight, there was no taxi ready for us and after 10 minutes of phone calls the man on the front desk led us out onto the street where he grabbed a random taxi for us. Also we weren't made aware on check in or check out that we had the rest of our balance to pay, were made aware once we had left via WhatsApp and some failed attempts at emailing the payment link.
Great value and well located in the historic center of Stone Town. Beautifully decorated rooms. Historic building- Princess Kholle’s residence in the mid 19th Century.
everyone was friendly and helpful...such a warm place i felt like being with family
Breakfast could have more options
This is a restored old home that was furnished with antiques and other furnishings suited to its environment. We loved the atmosphere, pool, dinning and central location in Stone Town. This is not suitable for those with mobility issues as all rooms are on the second and third floors and stairs are steep and narrow. The roof terrace gives great views and is a peaceful place to relax.
Good breakfast Nice outing to Prison Island, easy to set up and included a packed lunch Nicely decorated rooms Air conditioning Roof terrace and pool
Pillows a bit hard
With a stay at Kholle House, you'll be centrally located in Zanzibar Town, within a 5-minute drive of Nakupenda Beach and Zanzibar Ferry Terminal. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours).
