This place is in the heart of Stone Town and in its budget range it's the best I found. Mohamed is a gentleman. Airport transfer is included. I was very impressed with the comfortable bedding and the very clean shared bathrooms. The really got that right. The breakfasts were basic, fruit, eggs, tea. Wifi worked on and off but mostly on. There is a cool pizza garden next door the plays good music in the evening. But the best kept secret is a local restaurant called Lukman which is two blocks away (opposite the CRDB Bank). It's a fast-paced buffet restaurant packed with locals and popular with tourists who want to see what the fuss is all about. For a completely different experience try the excellent restaurant at The Emerson Hotel which does seafood with locally sourced spices. In Stone Town you'll get used to walking and everything is nearby including the night time food market at Forodhani Garden on the waterfront. I would highly recommend this place if you appreciate the higher end of budget.
