Zanzibar – Stone Town
Tembo House Hotel is a historic property set on the sea front in the heart of Stone Town.
Tembo House Hotel is set right in the heart of Stone Town approximately 10 minutes from the airport, in an old mansion house which has served many used over the years. All rooms are unique and boast traditional Zanzibar furniture, many with balconies overlooking the ocean.
Tembo House Hotel has many different room types; in fact no two rooms are the same. All rooms have wooden furniture and ornaments collected from around the world.
All rooms have air conditioning, refrigerator, telephone, and satellite television.
The Tembo House Hotel is set on a long stretch of beach and although this is not really a ‘beach property’ this is a pleasant extra.
Tembo House Hotel can also provide all the facilities you would expect from a city centre hotel, including laundry service and it even has a small internet café.
The ensite restaurant offers a good variety of international and local cuisine and attracts many diners not actually staying at the hotel.
This is a fantastic character property right in the middle of Stone Town with the added bonus of the Ocean. We would recommend a stay of two or three days which would enable you to explore Stone Town properly.
Tembo House represents excellent value year round for families and single travelers alike.
Stay here to explore Stone Town; don’t stay here for beach life
