"Another great option for a property that sums up Stone Town. Hidden away down the maze of streets that epitomise Stone Town itself, this is one of our favourite small properties."


This is a beautiful and atmospheric place to stay. It is a combination of an old 19th-century Swahili sultan's palace with Zanzibar's first photographic studio. It epitomises Zanzibar Stone Town style.


Emerson Spice Hotel is located on a small square at the end of the main shopping thoroughfare in Stone Town.


The hotel is in an imposing building made up of several stories, with an attractive inner courtyard and a fabulous roof-top restaurant. The bedrooms are each individually decorated, with walls painted in pinks, blues and violets, antique furniture, rich textiles, deep baths and high beds. They are spectacular.


  • Guests can take full advantage of the hotel's location, which is less than 10 minutes away from pretty much anywhere you'd want to visit in Stone Town.
  • We recommend delving into the history-rich streets with a trip to the House of Wonders and to Forodhani Gardens, which becomes a hub of activity after sunset when tourists and locals gather to dine on Swahili and Zanzibari delicacies.
