    Zanzibar Visit

    Bey al Salaam is conveniently located in a quiet close to the airport and is within walking distance of many sites around stonetown. The hotel is well maintained and the rooms are very comfortable and have been decorated with local culture rather than being a standard hotel. The staff were more than happy to help with requests and ensure that stay was comfortable. The food offered was good when tak,although I believe that whe coamped to other local restaurants then the costs fro hotel is higher and did not offer the high quality of elsewhere.

    Decent hotel

    This is a very decent hotel, especially for the money. Not quite boutique as advertised but good overall. It's situated near the Hyatt and other bigger hotels in a quiet area of town. We stayed in the ground floor room, just off the reception area, but wasn't disturbed by any noise. Reasonable size room with fridge, quiet aircon, tea/coffe facilities etc. Nice dining area and with a good choice of breakfast items and tasty and well presented. It's just a short walk to the beach and plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. Also close walking distance to the fort, house of wonders and major attractions. Would stay here again.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We thought the old building was very characterful, and despite being on the top floor facing the afternoon sun, the air con managed the 34 plus degree fairly well. The staff were charming, and Germana was very helpful. Our lunch of squid and octopus was excellent, though we thought it pricey overall - but then you're in a near-waterfront locale where Hilton and Doubletree are neighbours...

    Small. But kind.

    People were helpful but sometimes there was nobody in reception. So when I needed something, I should wait. Room was clean as much they can. But there was no amenities what they wrote it in website. Even I booked 2 rooms for 4 people, 1 room was so small. It was for single. Bed was so small for two. nevertheless, People were kind and restaurant was so nice and perfect.

    Best quiet little hotel in Stonetown

    Lovely gem in the middle of Shangani just steps from the beach, near all the great restaurants, the street shopping, and down the road from the famous night market. The ground floor has a fantastic restaurant and a very good spa. The wifi was fast and the staff went out of their way to take care of us. It was nice to stay in a smaller hotel with a more local feel.

    Decent value for the price

    It is called a Boutique Hotel, which I guess means small and old. The "ornate bathroom" was just oddly assembled, with only the basics provided. There was something stuck in the sink and I called attention to it in a note to housekeeper but it was not cleaned out. The spaciousness of the rooms was nice but not altogether easy to use. WIFI was intermittent, perhaps due to a fair amount of rain. The bed was very comfortable, and the AC worked well in our room. The people were helpful and friendly. In the restaurant the breakfast was fine. Their famous coconut crab soup was wonderful. And Amina, a server in the evening, was totally delightful and conversational!
