I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Chavda hotel during the 2012 Sauti Za Busara Music Festival. From this location you can easily walk almost every where in Stone Town ie. to the Fort where the festival was held, historic sites, resturants, souvenir shops, money exchange places etc.) The rooms were extremely spacious and the air conditioning worked very well....
Great value, great location

Perfect stay in Stone Town
