The ten guestrooms are beautiful and romantic, 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 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.
Residence Hotel 240 Hurumzi
There are six guest rooms in the recently restored building 240 Hurumzi next door. All six rooms are elegantly furnished with Zanzibar beds and antique furnishings. These rooms are located along spacious corridors on the two top floors. Each floor has access to its own fully equipped shared kitchen.
Peace of Love wing
The western wing addition to 236 Hurumzi is named the "Peace of Love wing" in honour of the small lively square that it overlooks. This wing features the most original and luxurious suites in the hotel. Most rooms have balconies, teahouses, or verandas.
