Zanzibar Coffee House

The Zanzibar Coffee House Hotel offers a touch of magic and romance in an authentic Arabic house deep in the heart of Stone Town. Transformed into a stylish hotel with harmonious interiors, antiques and rich fabrics, it is one of the oldest buildings in Zanzibar constructed by the Wazir to Sultan Said Bargash in 1885. Most stunning of the 8 individually designed rooms is the Arabica Suite with its terracotta décor and low Arabic sofas and the plush Bourbon Suite with two adjoining rooms in cobalt blue and gold. All rooms are air-conditioned and have traditional Zanzibar four-poster beds with lavish mosquito nets, rare lamps, antique furniture and unusual details.
