About Emerson Spice Hotel

The small-scale and most authentic Emerson Spice Hotel is located in the middle of the historic town of Stone Town.

This boutique hotel, housed in a monumental merchant’s house, with its stained glass windows, wooden railings and fountain, has been completely restored to the old Zanzibar style.

The tea house on the roof and the lushly covered garden ensure a romantic escape from the bustle of the streets of Stone Town.
