As others have mentioned, you get what you pay in the Kahama Hotel. It has very modest facilities and rooms, but clean and at very attractive prices. The staff is friendly and helpful. The only main downside for me is the fact that you need to get a taxi to get anywhere. Although it is relatively close to downtown and... More

Kahama is very centrally located. Our room was clean, but the bathroom was impossibly small. Don't be obese and try to get into it. The room was adequate, but we didn't have hot water. The hotel opened another room so we could shower, but the hot water there ran out in 5 minutes.

Economy with style is the motto and that feels right. Security is good and the location is close to the city centre, though as a lone woman traveller I didn't feel confident enough to walk into the city. The breakfast was really good. The downside for me was that the interior of the hotel was quite dark and there was... More

Pre checkin: I missed my connection from BKK and flew out the next night, but hadn't been able to get my tablet or phone to work to contact the hotel to change my checkin date. I managed to email before boarding and then rang them from NBO airport. They had my email and had already changed my booking for me... More
