Where Style blends with Elegance &
freshly ground Coffee

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 in 1885 by Sir Tharia Topan, Wazir to Sultan Said Bargash.

 

The 8 individually designed rooms offer single or double occupancy within the warmth of this antique building. All rooms are air-conditioned and have traditional Zanzibar four-poster beds with lavish mosquito nets, rare lamps, antique furniture and unusual details.

LOVED staying here

"Totally magical experience. This hotel is gorgeous and makes you feel like you are stepping back in time. The decor is out of this world. The staff is super helpful and the food and coffee are good at the cafe. Wifi is free and decent for guests! They also have cute gifts you can buy like coffee in printed tins and wall art. Definitely stay here. "

Beautiful and relaxed
 

"We stayed here one night but I wish it was more. [...] The breakfast was one of the best we've had in Zanzibar, fresh breads and different tropical juices and of course coffee!! We took a basic room without an en suite but we did have our own private bathroom down the hall. [...] It seems the owners have the rooms set up this way so they did not have to alter the houses original design. The whole place had a laid back feel that helped us ease in to Zanzibar life"
