Welcome to Warere

Formerly a merchant’s house, Warere Town House opened as a hotel in 1983, and was refurbished in 2011. Today it is a family-run hotel offering bed and breakfast and en-suite rooms, fully equipped with air conditioning, mosquito nets, secure deposit boxes and free Wi-Fi access.

Eleven Rooms

The hotel has eleven rooms ranging from single to double, with or without a balcony and family rooms with a balcony. Each room is uniquely decorated in the Zanzibar style with Arabic influences.

Zanzibari Style

Attractively carved wooden beds and wooden features create a stylish setting. In keeping with building tradition on Zanzibar, the thickness of the walls helps rooms stay wonderfully cool.

Restored Elegance

Hidden away in a delightful courtyard garden, yet only a two-minute walk from the ferry terminal, this elegant and beautifully restored example of a Zanzibar town house provides affordable hospitality in the heart of the UNESCO world heritage site.

Home away from Home

On arrival guests are warmly greeted with a welcome drink and refreshingly cold flannel scented with jasmine.
