    This hotel looks like something out of Bogart film - ornate interior and a spiral staircase. great art on the walls and the feeling of history everywhere. The best part is the fantastic rooftop bar - whether you're staying there or not be sure to drop by for a drink at sunset to watch the world go by.

    It might be a bit overpriced, but this is a pretty special place to have a sundowner. There's nothing like sipping a pina colada as you watch the sun set - and the view here is great for that. My recommendation is splurge a bit on the drinks here, then save money on dinner and hit the night market for some Zanzibar "pizzas".

    Drinks, at the very least, are a must on the balcony. As others have recommended, I'd suggest getting there for sunset.
