The Zanzibar Stone Town Inn is a traditional house, a 3-floored building which was at one time a tea house, hence it’s original name: Beyt Al Chai (or House of Tea). The exceptional location of this boutique hotel offers the whole Stone Town on a silver platter to its guests.
A wealthy Arab merchant originally built this fabulous old building. In the years that followed, the square in front of Beyt al Chai became frequented by the European residents of the town.
Perfectly located on the famous Kelele Square, the Beyt Al Chai, (or The Zanzibar Stone Town Inn), allows you to enjoy the ambiance of the famous Zanzibar Stone Town with a unique respite for peace and tranquillity by overlooking a beautiful grassy square filled with hibiscus and tamarind trees to the Indian Ocean beyond.
Situated only a few paces from the sea, the House of Tea is cool and breezy and the top floor bedrooms’ have wonderful views of the Ocean.
Being an authentic old Zanzibari house, each of the 6 fully en-suite bedrooms and suites is unique and with it’s own character. Richly coloured organza and silk curtains billow in the breeze around genuine antique furniture dating back to the days of the Sultan.
