    Good location for Chumbe Island which was the main reason for staying. Novel hotel layout amongst the Mbweni House ruins.

    Nothing to dislike although the room was on the slightly smaller side but with a great shower!

About

Overview

The only Protea in the beautiful Zanzibar, Protea Hotel Zanzibar Mbweni Ruins provides the perfect choice for both beach and Stone Town holidays in Zanzibar. We are located amidst Mbweni Ruins dating back to 1870s and a beautiful botanical garden. The hotel is ten minutes away from Stone Town, airport, ferry terminal and the CBD of Zanzibar. Protea Hotel Zanzibar Mbweni Ruins is a cozy boutique hotel offering serene accommodations amidst a rare blend of history, greenery and ocean with a beautiful beach. Traditional Zanzibar hospitality at its best is offered at an affordable price. It’s a hotel that complements your travel style. The site where the hotel is built was once an old Arab House, which was then bought by UMCA missionaries in 1871 to build a school for girls. The hotel makes a perfect base for exploring Stone Town.
