The staff at Kiponda are warm and welcoming. I received immediate and helpful responses to all email inquiries. The staff assisted in booking transportation from the airport and was accommodating when our flight was unexpectedly changed at the last minute. Kiponda is ideally located about a block from Forodhani Park, the waterfront, House of Wonders, Customs House, lots of shopping, and the Old Fort. It was safe, secure, and clean. This is not the Hyatt, it’s a lovely old building in Stone Town, so set your room standards accordingly. Our room was on the top floor and the wifi signal was strong. We had an AC unit in our room and it kept us comfortable at night. Breakfast was lovely and we received made-to-order eggs. Thank you for a lovely stay, Kiponda! We would absolutely recommend Kiponda to other travelers visiting Stone Town.
