What a great little boutique hotel! Frans was a pleasure. His staff was well trained and very sweet and accommodating. The food in their little restaurant was surprisingly good. This helped take some of the sting out of an otherwise less than ideal situation. For someone from the US it was comforting to have someone who you were sure 100% communication was taking place with during the unexpected extended part of our stay.Read full trip review

This hotel in a fairly central stone town location was very nice. Our room was beautifully decorated in an Arabian style and at the top floor so we had a great view of stone town from our balcony. The staff were very nice and we were greeted by the manager on our arrival and at departure. He was very good at organising our tour of Stone town which was very interesting and well worth doing. The food and service in the hotel was excellent. The only negative was there was no lift and it was quite a steep trek to the top floor. Not one for a more elderly person.Read full trip review
