General Information

The name Seyyida is derived from the Arabic word meaning princess, lady of the manor. The hotel is a charismatic and gracious model of femininity that mixes the beauty of the old with the modern. With a combination of Colonial and Arabic décor the Seyyida offers a warm and inviting atmosphere for all its guests.

Each room is beautifully and uniquely decorated in Swahili theme using traditional furnishings. Rooms are stylishly comfortable.


The Seyyida is ideally situated next to the Palace Museum, formerly the residence of the Zanzabari Royal Family, and is just a short walk from the most celebrated Stone Town monuments such as the Forodhani Garden, House of Wonder and Old Fort.
