“We stayed at the Emerson on Hurumzi for two nights. The hotel was beautiful and the staff are beyond attentive and friendly. They truly think of everything, from environmentally conscious soaps, to separate beach towels. The rooms are very clean and the historical architecture and furniture truly complement the mystery of Stone Town that surrounds. We stayed in the Blue room, which was beautiful and had a large tub and sitting area. Our friends stayed in the North room, which had a lovely sunset ocean view on a private terrace and open-air tub. You can have breakfast in your room for no extra charge. The breakfast was a full hot breakfast with many seasonal fruits as well. When we checked out, they gave us a room to use for shower and lounging for the full day at no extra charge. We were so impressed with their hospitality. Would highly recommend the Emerson, with their personal staff and excellent value. As for the restaurant, we had dinner on the rooftop with live music. Food was delicious, views and atmosphere amazing and service, again, personal and excellent. It felt like a history lesson with your meal, which we enjoyed to learn about customs and culture.”
