Positive Reviews

Warm and inviting atmosphere

You can easily make Protea Mbweni Ruins Hotel a home away from home. With the friendliness of the staff and the inviting atmosphere you feel when you enter the reception, you won't want to leave anytime soon.

Lovely secluded location

This hotel's secluded location gives you a sense of peace and quiet. You won't need to worry about being disturbed at night by loud street noise or nightlife, as this hotel is separated from everything. However, the nearby Stone Town offers you many shops and restaurants just ten minutes away.

Great food on offer

Protea Mbweni Ruins Hotel offers guests a taste of the good life. The food prepared in the on-site restaurant is something you will find hard to forget. You can choose between a range of sumptuous meals while enjoying the view and a drink. Many guests have given compliments to the chefs.

Negative Reviews

Slow restaurant service

Even though the food at this restaurant is quite enjoyable, you will most likely have to wait a while  for it. This can be frustrating when you are in a hurry or just simply hungry. There are however alternative off-site restaurants in the Stone Town.

Rooms on the smaller side

You might want to upgrade your room if you are staying with more than one person. The rooms on offer are on the smaller side, making your private space quite cramped if you need to share it. There is also a lack of space to put your luggage. Packing lightly is recommended.

Bad road leading to hotel

Even though most guests enjoyed their stay at this hotel, the road leading up to it is in quite a bad state. You should be careful if you are planning to drive your own veichle as the road can damage you car if you drive too fast. Even though most guests enjoyed their stay at this hotel, the road leading up to it is in quite a bad state.
