The hotel is situated right in the very heart of Stone Town. It's very stylish and the rooms are tastefully decorated. Breakfast is offered on the rooftop. Great selection of dishes with a stunning city view. Can be a bit noisy at night but otherwise highly recommended!

Dear Veronika Y, Greetings from Jafferji House and Spa, thank you for choosing your stay with us. It is with pleasure to hear that you had a wonderful stay here. We are happy you enjoyed our rooftop breakfast which has a variety selection. We thank you for this great review on our rooms and, we are sorry for the negative experience with the noise at night. It might be during the Sauti za Busara festival (Musical festival) which was held just opposite the hotel. However the nights are always quit. We can't wait to host you again when visiting Zanzibar. Kind regards, Rosemary Maganga Resident Manager

We enjoyed our stay at the Jafferji House. Although some things were in need of repair, the ambiance was quirky and interesting. The air conditioning in our room (Kama Sutra) was great after a hot day walking around the town and we had plenty of hot water for showers. Breakfast

I stayed in Jafferji House two nights in November. My overall experience was 'so so'. I reached the hotel around 5pm on Monday with my guide and there was no one at the reception. We had to yell and knock the wood hoping someone would show up. Then the receptionist came and gave
