The DoubleTree by Hilton in Zanzibar allows you to stay in the centre of historic and rambling Stone Town, which is a World Heritage Site, while enjoying all the comforts and mod cons of an international hotel. Just 15 minutes’ drive from Zanzibar International Airport, you will step from the exciting heat and hubbub of Stone Town into the cool and well-appointed DoubleTree and make your way to one of 58 rooms or three spacious suites.

Although it has contemporary facilities like a 24-hour fitness centre, complimentary Wi-Fi, electronic door locks and 42-inch flat-screen satellite televisions, the DoubleTree has not forgotten its unique location which is echoed in the hand-carved Zanzibari furniture, the traditional architecture and a menu that is infused with flavours from the Spice Island 

The DoubleTree is a good base for travellers who like to have their creature comforts on tap and who enjoy the peace of mind offered by an established hotel group. There are spa facilities nearby and the staff also provide services such as babysitting and laundry. Zanzibar is a popular destination after a Serengeti safari or Kilimanjaro climb, and is renowned for its laidback atmosphere that is steeped in Swahili, Arabian and European history.
