The Arabian-themed Tembo Hotel is situated right on the beach in the centre of the Shangani area of Stone Town. Originally the hotel was one grand old house, but they have recently added an extension and increased the number of rooms to a total of 36. Almost all the rooms (except (some of the Prime Rooms) overlook the sea and feature a mix of traditional Zanzibari and European furnishings.
Our view of Tembo Hotel
When we last visited the Tembo in December 2009, we felt the hotel was a bit dark and could do with a bit of a facelift. That said, it is a reasonably priced hotel in a good location, and provided that you can accept the odd small niggle that you may encounter here, it offers great value.
