Great location and nice hotel

We only stayed here for 2 nights but wanted to stay longer. The hotel is nice, clean and in a great location. The staff were helpful and booked us a great trip to Prison island which included a sandbank picnic. We checked out early and they provided us with a packed breakfast which was so helpful. Would recommend this hotel for stays whilst in stone town.

Exotic Zanzibar

Double Tree Hilton is very centrally placed. It is a recently furbished hotel so it is very new and fresh. Staff are delightful and helpful. Rooms are very clean. Breakfast is at the roof restaurant. Only one negative point - getting hot water from the shower is a challenge.

Great location in old part of Stone Town

We spent the last night on Zansibar in Double Tree by Hilton. It was the perfect closure of our dream trip to Tansania. The hotel is great located, in quiet part of the OldTown, the roof restaurant has a beutiful view and really tasteful food and beverages. The room was comfortable, clean, cosy.
