Tembo Hotel

Hotel Overview: TEMBO HOTEL

The Tembo Hotel is centrally located in the historic Stone Town, Zanzibar. Housed in an old colonial building with lots of history, the architecture is classic Zanzibari and makes for lovely surroundings, with high ceilings, spacious rooms and large windows and verandas. Mahatma Gandhi and Freddy Mercury have both stayed in this building at some time – though not together, we emphasise! The Tembo Hotel, sitting right on the waterfront with views across the Indian Ocean, is a great place for families to stay and enjoy all the sights and sounds of Zanzibar’s capital. With a large swimming pool, a good restaurant, and its spacious, ensuite air conditioned rooms, Tembo provides a good base to relax after a days sightseeing.
