Dhow Palace Hotel is located in Stone Town nearby Tippu Tip House.

The hotel results from the renovation of two buildings dating back to the late 1800s and consists of about 40 rooms all different one another, some featuring a balcony overlooking the main courtyard and the swimming-pool, some others overlooking Shangani Stree and the narrow alley skirting the hotel itself. They all have mini-bar and air-conditioning

Dhow Palace Hotel offers an average level of servicing at a very interesting rate. Like all hotels of Stone Town it ranges over several stories with stairs that might result tiresome to someone while rooms facing the surrounding alleys tend to be noisier than those facing the inner courtyard.

The hotel is complemented by the roof-top terrace restaurant. It does not offer alcoholic drinks however it will be easy to find a nice restaurant within walking distance.
