    Mitt i Stone Town o ändå lugnt

    Vi bodde inte på Zanzibar hotell, det renoverades. Detta fick vi ingen info om. Blev körd till först ett hotell, blev välkomnade o drink, men där skulle vi inte bo, utan blev hänvisade till annat hotell Tausi Palace ( systerhotel) Det var ett bra hotell, med AC på rummet ( det blev nästan för kallt, gick inte att ändra temp). Frukosten ingen höjdare. Fick behålla vårt rum hela dagen ( avgift), vi åkte från Zanzibar på kvällen

    Troca de Hotel sem aviso prévio e consentido

    A referir que o alojamento não foi neste hotel mas sim no Tausi Palace Hotel, pois, inesperadamente e inexplicavelmente o Hotel Zanzibar encontrava-se encerrado para obras, sem que antecipadamente me fosse transmitido essa informação que considero relevante. Deste modo, fui reencaminhado para o Tausi Palace Hotel, do mesmo grupo e é sobre este que faço avaliação acima descrita. De qualquer forma e embora o hotel de substituição fosse próximo e de qualidade bastante aceitável, considero inadmissível que não fosse antecipadamente transmitido que o hotel contratado não estivesse disponível.

    Zanzibar Hotelを予約していたが、改修工事中のため宿泊できなかった。ホテル側は、別のホテル(Tausi Palace Hotel)を提供してくれたが、予約時点で宿泊できないことが分かっていたはずであり、この変更について事前に何の連絡もなかったので非常に不愉快な思いをした。また、変更後の泊まったホテルは設備も古くまた暗い客室であった。

    Bon hôtel, bien situé

    Bien dans l'ensemble, très près du coeur de ville. Un personnel aimable et à l'écoute. Seul souci : pas de connexion wifi dans la chambre.

    이 가격이 이 정도는 훌륭

    스톤타운 거리에서도 조금 안쪽이라 조용했음. 고풍스러운 컨셉은 사진빨 잘 받게 함. 그래서 실제로 봤을 땐 조금 실망 가능성 있음. 하지만 조식도 맛있고 서비스도 노력하는 편이라고 생각하게 함.

    Prisgunstig alternativ i Stone town

    Et utrolig flott hotell med store rom som ligger sentralt til i Stonetown. Her er det gangavstand til alle kjente landemerker i området, og det ligger i et trygt område av byen. Det var veldig stille og rolig, gode senger og en helt grei frokost. Personellet var serviceinnstilt og gav oss en god opplevelse.
