This is a lovely hotel with a short walking distance to the main shopping.area. The rooms are nicely appointed but few of them have any views. The rooms are quiet, the staff attentive. I would stay here again

I have stayed in Stone Town many times, typically in smaller hotels. This time I stayed in the DoubleTree as a finale to my longer stay, and it was FANTASTIC.

Abubaker is the man!!!
Abubakar the front desk assist manager really made our stay worth the stay! After the new we received when we arrived and had to be moved to a nearby hotel, was shocking due to the day prior the email my wife received to check-in. However thing were great and would recommend this hotel!

Within walking distance to taxi, shopping, tourist hotspots. I didn't like the attitude of the hotel manager who refused to acknowledge that the hotels kitchen was responsible for my food poisoning.

Great choice after two days of flying. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet. There were a lot of fresh fruits, fruit juices, and local coffee. The hot selections were ok .The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was spotless. The rooms are small and a bit crowded. Small shower. We stayed two nights and would highly recommend this hotel.
