Because the health and welfare of our guests is the number one priority, hotels are currently providing modified breakfast offerings,
such as “grab and go bags” or “individually wrapped” breakfast items. (Offerings may vary by hotel)
Ideally situated on the seafront of the ancient town of Stone Town right next to the Ferry Harbor, the Best Western Plus Zanzibar is flanked by an exotic mixture of cultural and architectural fusion within the UNESCO protected World Heritage Centre.

We are within walking distance of all the renowned sites some of which range back to the late 17th Century, and acted as, among others, home of the world-renowned explorer Dr. Livingstone and the rock star Freddy Mercury of the famous Queen band.
We offer modern convenience with an enchanting Swahili feel and unparalleled hospitality. Each of our rooms is unique with high quality modern furniture against an antique background feel for that refined travel experience. Our roof top bar offers a panoramic view of the dock and ocean where you can enjoy a sun-downer cocktail as you watch the dhows glide majestically across the waters into the harbor.
Our staff is always on hand to offer sophisticated service with a flare of the gracious Swahili hospitality. Personal attention to detail is something that we take great pride in.
