The Arabian-themed Tembo Hotel is situated right on the town 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 38. 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 November 2013, we felt the hotel was lively and fun, but not the most relaxing! It is a reasonably priced hotel in a good location, and provided that you can accept the odd small niggle – and the fact that you won't get a cold beer, or any other kind of alcohol – it offers great value.
