Where to stay in Zanzibar City

The main hotels in Zanzibar City sit by the water, many of them just a short stroll from the ferry terminal. With fantastic views of the sea, excellent access to the town's amenities, and rooftop areas with al fresco dining and swimming pools, these are suitable for couples and families. Head west through Forodhani Gardens to find some of the most luxurious hotels, set in colonial-era buildings. Budget-conscious travelers will be pleased to find a number of guesthouses on side streets just back from the coast.
