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!:-))

Great location and the staff were absolutely great. Lovely building, really good food. included breakfast was really tasty. Did not want to leave.
STEP IN is totally peaceful place with a wonderful view of the sea, homely atmosphere and delicious food. Changing of low and high tide offers variation of activities - swimming or walking far away from the coast where are hidden beautiful reefs with fish. You can also watch and meet local people who live just in the neighbourhood. If you want some shops, lively bars and kiting you can walk to Paje - 6 km up the beach, but be careful with the changes of tides. Jambiani is not spoilt by tourism and local people are very friendly, we can highly recommend it :)

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!

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!

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

Jambiani guesthouse is ideally placed, right on the seafront in beautiful unspoilt Jambiani. Anna, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. This was the perfect place for us to relax and unwind after climbing Kilimanjaro.
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.

The atmosphere was lovely! Patrick, the assistant manager was very welcoming and very helpful! Everyone was very accommodating and I felt safe leaving my bags at the hotel the day after my stay (after check out).
It's a bit creepy outside, especially for the first time, but it's ok. We didn't hear the noise of the port in the rooms, so it was ok. It's very nice and clean inside, the staff is really friendly and helping. They can arrange any tours or taxis or whatever you might need. They also provide a map of the city together with some advice and suggestions. They do serve their breakfast on the roof and we enjoyed it. Btw, everything here comes with ginger, the welcoming lemon juice, the tea, even the soap in the shower. So if you don't like ginger that might be a problem!
