About Kholle House

Kholle House is a boutique hotel in the heart of Stone Town, on the west coast of Zanzibar island.

The Kholle House was built in 1860 by Princess Kholle, the daughter of the first Sultan of Zanzibar, and offers a glimpse into the life of a Zanzibari princess.

The beautifully renovated and attractive building is located near the harbour of Stone Town.
