Dhnow Palace Overnight
A very different experience. [Ed: from Fumba Beach Lodge]
I'd suggest Stone Town is a mx of one night / two days as there is not a huge amount to do unless you take the extra trips (eg Spice Tour / Slave Prison etc)
Very central location
The location of the hotel is great - very central - with everything on your doostep. Beautiful design. Very nice too to have a pool.
The room was very small but clean. The furniture is inkeeping with the hotel which is lovely but there is nowhere to store clothes - just a couple of hangers. We also thought that it was a bit mean not to provide fresh bottled drinking water each day.
The staff in general were friendly and helpful but our wakeup call was late.
The breakfast is adequate but nothing to write home about. Very nice though to eat up on the roof-top.
Having visited the Tembo Hotel too - but I can't remeber the difference in cost - I think that we would have prefered the Tembo but we didn't see any of the rooms.
