The Swahili House – Stone Town

The Swahili House – Stone Town

Located in the bustling heart of Stone Town you find The Swahili House – a sparkling hotel with traditional influences and modern day facilities, offering authentic Swahili hospitality. The Swahili House is located in the centre of Stone Town and therefore in the middle of all the action. The bustling market, little shops, restaurants and other points of interest are all within walking distance from the hotel. We can organize professional guides who’ll assist you while discovering Stone Town in order to get the maximum out of your visit to this busy little town and its hundreds of little streets.

The Swahili House was originally set up and used as an Indian Merchant House in the 19th century. In the 125 years that followed the building became a home to one of the many Sultan families that inhabited Zanzibar and then became a hotel in 2008. Most of the hotel has been restored into its original state, which makes your stay at The Swahili House a real Zanzibari experience!

The impressive building has 5 floors that are all built around a beautiful traditional Zanzibar courtyard. The hotel offers 20 rooms, spread out over 4 floors. The rooms all are restored and decorated in traditional Swahili style, but adjusted to Western standards. The Swahili House would definitely not be the same without our rooftop terrace., which houses a bar, restaurant and a very relaxing plunge pool overlooking the Indian Ocean. Up here you can enjoy a cocktail, lunch or dinner while indulging in stunning views of Stone Town and the Swahili Coastal view…
