Kholle House review

The Kholle House was very different and has been refurbished well. The owner., Francis showed us round and explained the history of the house. Our room was fine.

The main problem was the close vicinity to a mosque and the call to prayer in the night which was very loud. We also had difficulty trying to pay our bill as the man on reception was unable to understand us.

The hotel organised a very good guide for us to do a walking tour of Stone Town. This was very interesting and enabled us to see more and be more informed than if we had been walking on our own.

Kholle House review

Kholle House was beautiful although I'm not sure we would have found it without our driver, but that's Stonetown. It's a bit off the main road, down a couple of allys, which was just a bit foreign to us, but once we had our bearings, it was fine. It is an exceptional old home and the hostess took time to give us a history of the house when we arrived. Unfortunately we were only there for one evening and really didn't have time to enjoy its ambiance.

The room was quite authentic to a grander time in Zanzibars history and we were quite impressed as it was a stark contrast to the street below.

Kholle House review

Lovely hotel, charmingly decorated in an old palace in shown town.

Great location with walking distance to the main attractions ( on a narrow street so the last stretch you have to walk on foot)
Fantastic breakfast.

Lovely common areas: Small but beautiful pool and garden, simple but charming roof terrace.

Highly recommended.
