I have stayed at Kahama on three occasions and each time I have been satisfied with the experience. The swimming pool is great. The rooms are good, clean and comfy. The staff are okay but not very friendly if the guest is not a mzungu.

The food is excellent, staff at the pool bar exceptional, service wise. Rooms are cousy and spacious, however, instructions on how to open the safe in the room need to be printed instead of having to wait for over 12hrs for a member of staff to come and open it for you. The faiba WIFI is a huge disappointment. Never... More

Kasha a is a nice little hotel, that has a very East African feel to it. The rooms are big sized, air conditioning works, bed is comfortable, and the hotel is managed to a decent standard of cleanliness. Breakfast is very basic, but it is included. The pool is small, but why swim in it when you can walk down... More

They charge extra to use the room safe. My camera was stolen from my room. I asked them about this, and they said that they would check their security cameras and I left my phone number. I got no phone call, so I emailed them after returning from my trip. They followed up to say they checked the security cameras,... More

For being incredibly close to Bamburi beach this place is a great deal! Rooms are big and nicely furnished. The ac is good, internet throughout, and everything is quite clean. The walk to the beach is short and easy. The pool is a welcome treat, especially during the hottest part of the day, because there's some shade and poolside wait... More

Pros: Great location,amazing sports bar,clean rooms,hassle free swimming pool and great space. Cons: There was no safe in the room even though the brochure said the rooms have one, no pressing of clothes service after 6pm; it seems... More

I always choose Kahama when I come to Mombasa for business. The rooms are very pleasant, service good and the staff very pleasant. Breakfast is always delightful - the restaurant by the pool is very attractive and peaceful and the wait staff always attentive. The best thing about this hotel is the staff, and the ambiance it has. When you... More
