I would like to recommend the Africa House in Stone Town, Zanzibar. I frequently travel to Zanzibar and have been staying at a different hotel each trip. I'll likely return to the Africa House as the experience was very pleasant.
Great staff and location at the hotel.
Charming hotel with excellent staff. Be aware that like most small hotels housed in what used to be Arab homes it does not have an elevator so be prepared to climb 3 flights of stairs if your room is on the top floor. Since the hotel has just 11 rooms and the hotel' s restaurant is meant primarily for hotel guests the dinner menu is limited but there are many good restaurants nearby.
Nice hotel in a ood location for exploring Stone Town
Out of the door; turn right and you are soon at Jaws Corner and in the heart of the town.
We got a second floor room and I would recommend 2nd or higher as the lower floor looked like it may have difficulty with windows. Given how everyone is on top of each other in Stone Town this was nice and quiet and has a nice rooftop restaurant for breakfast (we did not eat at other times).
One down side we were promised a collection from the airport but it was not arranged
