The Seyyida Hotel & Spa is very cosy and sophisticated. The style of rooms there still reminds you of Zanzibar with some fresh and different details. It is light and welcoming, perfect for travelers who want to enjoy the real atmosphere of Stone Town.

Julia and Lesia from the Shadows of Africa team had  breakfast on the roof of the hotel and they really felt like they were at home there.  The atmosphere of the restaurant is very relaxing and service is attentive without being annoying.


Breakfast includes fresh fruits and pastries, aromatic coffee, and perfectly made omelets and French toast. As per local culture, the food was served in a simple yet appetizing way. The best part of the breakfast there is the ocean view. You can see dhows going for their morning fishing and ferries heading to Dar es Salaam.

Our tip before choosing this hotel is to check which view you will get from your room. Best of all is to choose ocean view, these rooms have the best view and the most natural light.
