A warm welcome to The Swahili House.

Located in one of the small streets of the bustling heart of Stone Town in the Zanzibar Archipelago, you find The Swahili House. We are well known for our traditional Swahili influences and authentic hospitality combined with modern day facilities.

The Swahili house was originally set up and used as an Indian merchant house in the 19th century. In the 125 years that followed the building became a home to one of the many Sultan families that inhabited Zanzibar. Most of the hotel has been restored into its original state, which makes your stay at The Swahili House a real Zanzibari experience!
