About Tembo Hotel Zanzibar

The Tembo Hotel Zanzibar is a small boutique hotel which has been around for many years on Zanzibar Island.

Over the years Tembo Hotel Zanzibar have refined the hotel to ensure that it remains one of the highly recommended stays in Stone Town.

A Unique experience awaits at the Tembo House Hotel Zanzibar.

Tembo Hotel zanzibar is situated at the heart of Zanzibar Stone Town by the picturesque seafront.

The magnificent main building has had various functions over the past centuries. Between 1834 and 1884 it served as the American Consulate in Zanzibar then passed on to become the trading offices of Cowasjee Dinshaw & Partners. Their headquarters was in Aden (what now is known as the Port of Suez), and with trading posts notably in most of the British Protectorate areas, it became the largest trading company in the Indian Ocean. To this day, the name of Cowasjee Dinwash & Partners is still visible at the main entrance of Tembo Hotel Zanzibar.

Tembo Hotel Zanzibar has seen a few celebrities pass through its doors during the consulate era, the Conwasjee Dinwasee era and as a hotel. Mahatma Ghandi, stayed here a few weeks with the Dinwash family on his journey back to India from South Africa 1930. As a rising new star in the British, and the world music scene, Freddie Mercury and his family used to retreat to what is now “Marashi” apartment whenever they came back to Zanzibar on holidays.

Next to Tembo Hotel Zanzibar is also what used to be the British Consulate, where in 1874, Dr. Livingstone’s body was brought before embarking on its long journey back to England.

A stone throw away is the Beit-al-Ajaib, or House of Wonders. This landmark building is the largest and by far the tallest building in Stone Town. Flanking the Beit-al-Ajaib is the Old Fort on one side and the Palace Museum on the other.

In other words, Tembo Hotel Zanzibar is situated on a prime location; you need not go far to find the shops, the restaurants and the historical sites that Zanzibar Stone town has on offer.

Zanzibar Port is just a 5 minutes drive away and the Zanzibar International Airport a further 20 minutes away.

Welcome home away from home.
