About
Description
A haven of peace and tranquility nestled in the heart of bustling stone town. This impressive landmark, dating back to the 1800’s, and boasting a private garden of lush tropical vegetation, was the first ever More hotel on the island. A rich 19th-century air of elegance greets you as you walk through the original Zanzibari door. Beautiful beamed ceilings, marble floors, Persian carpets and magnificent crystal chandeliers recreate the glamour of yesteryear. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed and the ambiance embraces the uniqueness of the local culture. Less

Yes, they have a great bar in a very green and splendid garden. Try also the Kunyagi - a Tanzanian light gin. Several good beers available. Reasonable prices.
