Stay at Emerson Spice
One of the best hotels in Stone Town Zanzibar. An inspired and lovingly restored Merchant’s House, this Boutique Hotel has eleven stylishly furnished rooms structured around an airy central courtyard.
The hotel hosts two restaurants: The Secret Garden Restaurant, located in the distinctive Ruins of the adjacent garden and the rooftop Spice Hotel ‘Tea House’ one of Stone town’s most renowned restaurants offering a stylish ambiance amidst the sound of the calls to prayer from the town’s many mosques.
Every room in this famously glamorous hotel is different from the other. This mixture of mystery and history make them the best hotel rooms for your stay in Stone Town to experience the real Zanzibar. Room information can be found here.

Dine at Emerson Spice
The rooftop Tea House at Emerson Spice is smaller and more intimate restaurant than that of sister hotel Emerson on Hurumzi.
A calm ambiance allows guests to focus on the food, a daily changing seafood-based menu composed of the more and the less-known of Zanzibar ingredients. Find our more….
The jazz-infused Secret Garden, set in the ruin of an adjacent building, invites you to lunch accompanied by live birdsong, and dinner under the Milkyway. Find out more…
What our Guests Say
Myself and my partner decided to stay here the night before we left the island and it was a very good choice. The building is an authentic architectural symbol in Zanzibar Stonetown. The Room was spacious and full of character and great features, silent and peaceful despite being in the middle of the city. We also had dinner on the roof top with a set menu, full of flavours and variety of dishes combined with local food and spices.
Emerson Spice Staff team was very attentive and charming, both for dinner time and breakfast the day after. We will visit again! One more note, often we visited the Spice Secret Garden restaurant which is a little gem in this place and I also recommend! Thank you to all the Team and Management.
