    Great stay at the Palace

    Wonderful small hotel right in the middle of the small winding streets of Stone Town. Rooms were very nice and the service and hospitality were first rate. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. Breakfasts and the one dinner we ate there were very tasty. Great people working there!

    5/5 Excellent

    We chose the property for the location in Stonetown, and its unique boutique vibe. We liked the classic decor, the uniqueness of each sleeping room, and the location right in the middle of town near the ferry port. The staff were welcoming and helpful, including during our pre-arranged arrival at around 3am, due to flight schedules. They arranged multiple tours and reliable car transport to other locations for us at fair rates.

    A very charming hotel! I felt like I was a sultan for my overnight stay. The food at the restaurant was outstanding! The staff was very helpful for oraganizing some walking tours for me. Highly reommended!

    5/5 Excellent

    Very attentive and friendly staff. Very clean and lovely property. Its location in Stone's Town is hard to find and does not seem that safe an area, but the hotel is a very pleasant surprise on the inside. Only other issue is that because of location no outside view except other stone buildings.
