Tembo House Hotel is located in Stonetown on Zanzibar island off the coast of Tanzania.
Up until the construction of the Zanzibar Serena in 2002, this was the flagship hotel here in Stonetown. Its location on the waterfront close to the palaces is excellent and the converted merchant’s house which contained the original hotel is of considerable architectural significance.
These days the hotel’s star has faded somewhat. The addition of a substantial new wing and pool in 2003 changed the character of the place considerably and these days there is a distinctly touristy feel to the place.
Tembo House Hotel remains a decent enough lower-cost option though, especially out of the main seasons.
We still prefer the rooms in the old wing, particularly the two suite rooms with direct views out over the harbour.
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
