Centrally located in the heart of Stone Town, next to the Anglican Church with the old slave market site and just a few steps away from the local market, this cozy and simple room is your home away from home! The apartment has 2 bedrooms that i rent out independently, a mini-kitchen and common seating area.

I have tried to make it as comfortable as possible – Keep in mind that due to the location of my apartment in Stone town, Zanzibarian life begins right at your doorstep!

The space

The apartment is composed of two lockable double rooms (with a double bed each) that I rent out individually and comes with en-suite bathrooms with water heaters, western toilets and a sink. There is a well-equipped mini-kitchen shared by the guests of both rooms, and the common seating area has a wooden table, chairs and a Zanzibarian couch.

The apartment is decorated in a simple way with an inspiration of a Zanzibar home and is furnished with all the basic facilities we believe will make your stay enjoyable!

Guest access

The apartment has its own, separate entrance and all our windows are equipped with mosquito nets. Interesting sites like Jaw’s Corner, the House of Wonders, the Old Fort, Forodhani Gardens and of course the ocean can be reached within a few minutes of walking through Stone Town’s enchanting alleys

Interaction with guests

I live downstairs, so guests will have the apartment to themselves, and I am always there for you. I am happy to provide any assistance and/or advice and make use of my many contacts all over the island for you! Guests are always welcome to join me and my friends for a drink, a meal or nights out, we love to chat and exchange stories with people from all over the world!

Albert’s place is very well located in the centre of Stone Town, well furnished, clean and comfortable. It was even the only place on the island with hot water :) the pictures are aligned with reality although you might be a bit disappointed with the building’s look - don’t judge the book by its cover because the inside is a real pearl:) Thank you Albert for hosting us!:)

This was an awesome place to explore Stone Town from. It's super centrally located, a stone's throw away from two lovely restaurants, the shower has hot water, there's a nice little kitchen, and above all we received outstanding hospitality! Although Albert was gone during my stay, he was quick to respond to messages, and Ambrose was a delightful and very friendly and hospitable on-site contact who helped me find a replacement memory card for my phone, and arranged for our tours and transportation at local prices. I'd recommend this place to anyone--thanks Albert and Ambrose, see you again!

Our 2-night stay in Alberts Place was excellent and I can recommend it. The location is central and we were able to walk from the ferry. The room was clean and the A/C worked. The power was out for short periods during the days but this wasn't an issue for us. Albert and Ambrose were both available for us during the stay and were amazing - super responsive and had tons of tips. They took us out for a couple beers and a local bar one evening and it was great! They also helped us to go on the spice tour on short notice for a good price. This was our first few days in Tanzania and we were so glad for all the help. Asante sana Albert and Ambrose!
