Stone Town Heritage Hotel, Zanzibar Island
Located in the heart of Stone Town this delightful hotel is only a few steps away from bustling markets, shops, restaurants and museums. Dating back to the 19th century, The Swahili House was originally an Indian Merchant House and home to many Sultan families.
Recently restored to its original state with 22 en-suite bedrooms, The Swahili House now combines modern facilities with traditional influences and Swahili hospitality. Five floors are built around a beautiful courtyard with each floor accessible by Zanzibari staircases and an elevator.
Bedrooms are decorated in traditional Swahili style and are equipped to Western standards and include fans and air-conditioning. Most rooms in The Swahili House feature open-style bathrooms with a shower and bath.
The rooftop terrace is a particular highlight commanding wonderful views over Stone Town and the Indian Ocean, whilst housing a bar, restaurant and a relaxing Jacuzzi. Unlike many other Stone Town hotels, alcohol is served with a variety of wines, spirits and cocktails available.
