Jafferji House review

We enjoyed a couple of nights at Jafferji House and the place is really beautifully done.

The rooms are extensive and immaculately turned out in a lovely blend of colonial and African styles, the staff very helpful and the location terrific for exploring the sites and smells of Stone Town. The food is also excellent.

A big disappointment

A great disappointment!!! We were supposed to have been given the Livingstone Suite, but were given the Spice Room because they said the other room was not ready??? The room had a terrible odor, musty, humid. We could not sleep that night because of the odor, the terrible noise of the street and the hard pillows. I expressed my concerns and did not receive a good explanation other than they knew about the smell!!

Expert Africa comments

Jafferji House were very sorry to hear this feedback. These travellers were given the Spice Room because it is actually a better room than the one that had been booked for them, and so it was meant to be offered as an upgrade. However it had recently been refurbished and the management believe that the plastering had not yet dried out properly, hence the smell. They are very sorry that it affected this travellers stay, when they had only intended to make the stay better. They also say that this issue has now been resolved. They have also addressed the issue with the pillows, by offering some softer ones to travellers when they first arrive at the hotel.

Unfortunately, noise in the street is not an uncommon complaint with many hotels based in the centre of Stone Town. This is a highly populated area with a large number of mosques that sound out the call to prayer at dawn hence nights here can be disruptive sometimes.
