Family run house, very quiet. The owner is friendly and make you feel like at home. The terrasse on top is the best place to relax, drink a beer or read a book.
I would recommend Fairytale villa in 100%. Chagua is very good manager, for whom everything is Hakuna Matata (no problem!). He also cooks very well and can arrange great tours around the island. It is perfect place to relax, sail, swimm, eat ect...I want to come back...now!:-))

Absolutely fantastic place to stay in Zanzibar. Dude and Hel were extremely welcoming, the room was great and the beds comfy, our bathroom was clean and the shower was really good by Tanzanian standards! To top it off Dude took us out in his boat to go snorkelling for a price much cheaper than you would have paid anywhere else. Can't recommend this place enough and will definitely be going back there
Dudes is a great guy and a wonderfull host. Its a great place to stay . Jambiani is low key and very relaxing . We were very happy to stay here. Pj and bomi .

Atmosphere, part of the community, grounds to relax, interesting beach area with lots going on in terms of local fishermen and meeting with people from the area. Hotel staff were very friendly, helpful and interesting to talk to. Lovely breakfast. Daily menu was a little limited.
A little piece of heaven on earth... We stayed there for our final day before heading back to Dar. Coming from the much too touristic and crowded Kendwa up north, we were delighted to chill at Imani's. I loved having the local fishermen just outside of the property, and the tree top terrace offers the most beautiful view. Great food as well and great staff and management! Beautiful flowers and bougainvilliers! Asante sana!

The hotel atomosphere feels like something from a postcard! It is a quiet location right on the beautiful beach and is a close beachside walk over to plenty of activities (diving, snorkeling, restraurants, small shops, etc. the food at the hotel is wonderful and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and the whole environment is relaxing. This is a great value for the price! If the tide is up after dark then the beach won't be accessible, so it would probably safest to use a vehicle to go outside the hotel. Ovrerall it's a quiet peace of beach paradise that I would gladly visit again. Thank you Tanzanite!
The beach was superb outside the hotel. The hotel premises were also really beautiful and well-kept. The food was nice and there was a good variety. The restaurant staff were friendly. The atmosphere was very relaxing due to its small size and the fact that it was only half-full. We were upgraded due to the fact that it wasn't full as well which was lovely.

A very clean pleasant hostel, the beds are especially beautiful. It takes a while to learn stone town, so we got lost finding Jambo a lot. It's a little bit outside the main tourist drag, but still in the maize of alleyways.
very clean and enough space (big room) close to the city centre and comfortable

Fairly good location, just ignore the entrance to the property when you arrive. Once you get past the main docks area you very close to the main heart of Stone town. Simple rooms, if you are after a cheap place to crash this is great. Nice friendly staff. The roof terrace is ok for having a few beers and a nice place for breakfast too.
I loved the rooftop terrace where we ate breakfast! It's a short walk to all the main sites.

Endroit très bien situé tout près du marché et de la station d'Autobus. Boutique et resto dans l'hôtel. Très bon petit-dèj buffet sur le toit (cake marbré, jus frais, pain toast, ... )
the breakfast was fine, the waiter was very nice. Housekeeper was very nice. There is hot water but the showerhead dribbles so water pressure is terrible. Air con works. More bad: The shower sprays water in the middle if the bathroom, making everything wet. The excursions are overpriced. The hotel itself is overpriced and a similar place directly across the street is $25 cheaper pee night! We went to other hotels to get price quotes and most hotels of the same caliber were $20-30 pwr night cheaper! Zenji is a rip off!! We stayed an additional night at a different hotel. We could not wait to leave. Also, there is an issue with the bill. We brought cash/dollars to pay the remainder after the hostel bookers deposit, but were told our credit card was already being charged. This created a lot of confusion with reception. I didn't want to pay cash AND have my card charged, but I didn't intend to be billed via credit card since I brought cash. Credit seemed the better option so I didn't get a double charge. I had a poor enough experience with the manager and reception that I would like a refund for this dreadful hotel experience!!! Undoubtably the Worst stay in Tanzania!

This place is fabulous! It's such a good value for the money. The common area is really nice to sit in and relax, and the front porch area is perfect. There is a hammock between the palm trees, and sunbathing beds and chairs to recline in and soak up the sun. The beach is out the front door, and is so beautiful. I've never seen water that is such a bright blue. The breakfast of fresh fruits and crepes was delicious and filling. I highly recommend this place, and that you visit Jambiani. It's a little slice of paradise.
Just perfect for what I wanted. Relaxing, peaceful, no hassles. Eat at Lucitania, just over the road., Mohammed will cook exactly what you want. His octopus is superb.

Friendly and helpful staff, they were consciencious and helpful. Nice rooms, clean and air conditioners and fans worked!
Just about everything was perfect. Beautifully decorated rooms in an old building. A cozy roof terrace where breakfast is served. And the trust you're given to write down your own drinks, taken from the well-stocked fridges. Recommended to anyone for a great stay in Stone Town.
