"Dhow Palace Hotel review"
Breakfast was good, a bit chaotic if you got there at busy times, but plenty to eat and cheerful staff.
There are many interesting artefacts dotted around this hotel, a pleasant pool, and there is now a lift !
They were very helpful on the last day when we had a long gap between check-out and pick up, letting us spend time at the lovely roof garden.
We love the location, in the heart of town, near the post office, alleys, and my favourite shop, Memories of Zanzibar !" See all these reviews: 6n in Zanzibar; 5n in Tanzania
"Lovely place in a great Stone Town location"
We only ate breakfast there, which was fine but unexceptional. The rooftop is beautiful and a great, low key place to watch the sun go down.
The bed was not very comfortable, and it would have been nice to have bathrobes in the room to wear down to the pool." See all these reviews: 9n in Zanzibar; 7n in Tanzania
"Dhow Palace Hotel"
One of the staff was supposed to give me a call at midnight as I was getting an early morning flight, but he forgot or was himself asleep. Fortunately I had an alarm clock and woke up anyway." See all these reviews: 9n in Zanzibar

The other hotel was nice but the view was all construction which was not very nice." See all these reviews: 10n in Tanzania; 5n in Zanzibar
"Quaint & Quirky"
We were lucky to get an upgrade to a much larger room, which was great. Not much storage space, but fine for a 2-night stay. Loved the mosaic bath, Zanzibar chest, fridge and 3 balconies !
Rather hot at night, despite fan and air-con.
The pool is great after a dusty day sightseeing.
Breakfast buffet good." See all these reviews: 8n in Tanzania; 2n in Zanzibar

"Fine stay at Dhow Palace Hotel"
Unfortunately there was not enough time to use the swimming pool. The food was good. The hotel is muslim therefore teetotal." See all these reviews: 6n in Tanzania; 5n in Zanzibar
"Treated like Royalty at Dhow Palace"
We loved the zanzibari bed and the Persian bath. The rooftop terrace was a delight for sunset viewing We had the terrace all to ourselves. We also enjoyed having the balcony overlooking the pool and the breakfast provided was more than adequate." See all these reviews: 5n in Tanzania; 5n in Zanzibar
"Dhow Palace Hotel Review"
Might not suite guests looking for a very modern set up i.e. no lift etc , but for us it was perfect and just what we liked. The staff were very helpful and friendly." See all these reviews: 9n in Tanzania; 8n in Zanzibar
"Interesting hotel centrally located"
It ought to be made clearer in the brochure that it is a no alcohol hotel, although there were plenty of hotels and bars nearby." See all these reviews: 7n in Zanzibar; 6n in Tanzania
