About The Swahili House

The Swahili House is a sparkling hotel with traditional influences and modern day facilities combined with authentic Swahili hospitality. The Swahili House features five floors, all built around a beautiful traditional Zanzibar courtyard and reachable via traditional Zanzibari staircases and an elevator.Located in the bustling heart of Stone Town, the building was originally set up and used as an Indian Merchant House in the 19th century. In the 125 years that were to come, the building was home to one of the many Sultan families and then became a hotel some years ago.
