Emerson Spice

Set in the heart of Stone Town, Emerson Spice is a comfortable accommodation option decorated in typical Zanzibari style. The surrounding area is rich in European, African and Arab influences. The hotel is a great base for exploring the city and learning more about its long history.

Review of Emerson Spice

Miss Juliette Brown

We truly believe that the Emerson Spice is on the road to excellence! The rooms are well decorated and the food is excellent, especially dinner on the roof terrace. Shame that they building the room next door to us so the banging from the hammers and drills were are a bit noisy through the day.
