A boutique hotel
hidden in a small alley

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city life in Zanzibar, there's a hidden boutique hotel located in a small alley in Stown Town known as the Kholle House.

It features 10 rooms rich with history and color, with views of the sea, pool or garden. It was formerly owned by Princess Kholle, the daughter of the first Sultan of Zanzibar but was carefully renovated years later.

The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool, terrace, garden and a roof-top area where guests can enjoy a candlelit dinner with views of the city, the port and the Indian ocean. There's a restaurant in the first floor where guests can enjoy a meal or some cold refreshments.

Prestige Rooms

My air-conditioned prestige room was located in the second floor overlooking the garden and the swimming pool area. It was furnished with a queen sized bed with pillows that almost could feel like it was stuffed with rice. Heavy and quite annoying as I could hear these tiny pieces move in my ears. The room also had a sitting area with two chairs that were uncomfortable to sit in.

We had a separate bathroom with flush toilet and a shower that did not work properly. There were poor wifi connection in the room and it did not have a phone.
