This place was great! From the kind people that run the hotel to the furniture, also it was very very clean. The swimming pool was very nice. They helped us to organise tours and were always looking after us if we need anything. Breakfast was also good. The location is great, walking distance to historical places and restaurants and the beach... also across the road from Forodhani park that has a nice food market in te evening.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms that face the fort are very nice

Good hotel in the center of Stown Town.
Very friendly and helpful staff.

The hotel offers spacious room with AC and there is a small pool on the rooftop.
Well managed and very clean.

Breakfast is basic but decent.

Excellent value for money!

I have no complaints about Forodhani Park Hotel and had a very good experience. The hotel is basic but includes everything you need, large bathroom, spacious room, quiet, decent free breakfast in the morning. Breakfast included fruits, breads, omelettes, tea, coffee. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Location was great and just around the corner from some much more expensive hotels. Service was great and staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. WiFi was good for Zanzibar standards because WiFi is not that great anywhere really in Zanzibar. Stay at Forodhani and walk to the bars of the more expensive hotels. You can walk almost everywhere in Stonetown anyways. That's what I did and saved a lot of money instead of staying the Park Hyatt. I recommend this hotel if you do not need luxury, but something basic and comfortable.

Breakfast at Forodhani Park Hotel is quite good because of some variety (NOT the same thing everyday)!
Location of the hotel is excellent! Plenty of things to do and see locally - like the Old Fort, House of Wonders, taking boat rides etc.
Meals at the cafes or restaurants at Forodhani seafront not expensive at all. For example, a 3 course meal (main course includes choices of various seafood) plus a glass of wine costs USD 16 at the Monsoon Restaurant facing Forodhani seafront. Small cafes at Forodhani park can serve a breakfast at a very reasonable price.
Tourists should be VERY careful (especially on beaches in the north of Zanzibar) not to carry valuables or lots of cash whilst walking around - preferably leave everything in the hotel safe deposit.

Room Tip: Twin or Double Rooms with balconies facing the Old Fort.
