Emerson Spice review
This is just our sort of hotel: excellent position, small, quirky and all the staff were a delight.
We chose it, in part, because of its terrace restaurant, where we thought we would be able to relax after tramping the town. In the event, we had an even better solution: our large and colourful room had long balconies on TWO sides.
In the tiny rooftop restaurant, there is a single daily sitting for dinner and the fixed menu (which changes daily) is a 5 course taster at US$30. Good value.
Wonderful building in heart of Stone Town
We have stayed in Stone Town many times in the past so were interested to see what Emerson Spice would be like.
Overall the building and location were good, but we were given 'Siti' room which seemed to be one of the last rooms to be finished and regretfully still did not seem to be fully completed when we stayed. Our room overlooked the rear of the hotel and therefore did not give the best views.
On a plus side the rooftop dining experience was a highlight and architecture was amazing.
Beautiful room and building. Amazing history of the building, and each of the 6 rooms is completely unique. Located right in the heart of Stonetown, easy walk to all of the sights, beaches, and restaurants.
Free internet, and a great breakfast on their rooftop restaurant. Good service and staff was very friendly.
