236 Hurumzi is a luxurious hotel located in the heart of Stone Town, Zanzibar.
The second tallest building in Stone Town Zanzibar, the hotel has been restored to its former glory when it was the residence of one of the richest men in the Swahili Empire.
The atmosphere is of principal import as the furnishings are all original Zanzibari antiques of varied origins and styles that, together, create the impressions of Arabian Nights and sultan princesses escaping in the dead of the night for romance.
The Hotel has 24 beautiful and romantic rooms each representing Zanzibari traditions in a distinct way.
All rooms except for the Kipembe room are equipped with large stone bathtubs providing unusual bathing pleasure where a bubble bath and a bottle of wine are a frequent request.
Ceiling fans keep our guests cool along with the constant breeze on the upper floors. Second and first floor rooms as well as the South room are equipped with air conditioning for added comfort.
The sultan-sized rooms on the first and second floors have 20 foot ceilings, carved doors, original stucco décor and hand painted glass lamps and window panes.
All guest rooms have large Zanzibari beds complete with netting.
The Tower Top Restaurant is the best location to enjoy a leisurely lunch with spectacular views of the roof tops of Zanzibar Stone Town and the beautiful Indian Ocean.
Dinner menu consists of home-made biting’s and appetizers, a delicious soup, a choice of an Indian Ocean seafood salad or fatoush salad, your choice of fish, beef, chicken, or vegetarian entree, or from our supplemental seafood menu, Lobster Thermoform, Grilled Jumbo Prawns or Deviled Crab, offered at an additional tariff.
