The Serena has one of the best locations in Stone Town...
SuiteThere are four suites at the Serena Inn which are the hotel's largest rooms by quite a long way. Each has a reception area where there is a comfortable lounge furnished with antique-style silk sofas and chairs - which look as if they have come straight from an English stately home.
The bedroom has fresh white-washed walls, polished stone floors spread with Persian rugs and a mix of Zanzibari and European furniture. The end result isn't opulent or especially stylish, but is charming and colonial. These are beautiful rooms.
Like the other rooms, the suites have air-conditioning and fans, hairdryers, a kettle, mini-bar and satellite television. But the suites are much more spacious and have enormous balconies to lounge around on.
The en-suite bathrooms in the suites are much larger than the other standard of room. Each has his and hers sinks, a hot-and-cold bath/shower and a flush toilet. They are decorated with white marble and tile and are spotlessly clean.
