For the booking I contacted the manager, Abdalla, using email and he responded quickly and made the booking for us. He also booked the (Tawakal) bus from Mombasa to Mokowe/Lamu for us and was very helpful in general. The rooms are basic, but clean and have a fan and bednets. Some are self contained, some are not. Service is very... More

This is an immaculately clean, quiet, simple guest house, whose owner, managers and staff are extremely welcoming, trustworthy and helpful. I was very happy with the location. It's just behind the vegetable market, so you're in a part of town where you can feel the pulse of local life (rather than feeling like you're on the tourist circuit)... and yet... More

Pleasantly surprised and went on to stay there a couple of times on latter trips, and I love it. As has been said, basic, clean, comfortable and great location ... and keeps your cash in your pocket.

Rooms are nice (ask for 8), with a ceiling fan,... More

My partner and I stayed here for one night during our stay in Lamu Town. It is just a block behind the market and main square and a beautiful and interesting building. The room and bathroom are basic but very clean and comfortable. The proprietor is friendly and helpful.

This is our first review, and one we felt we had to write as the Nyuma Gereza suited our needs so perfectly in Lamu Town. As a bit of context, this was the Kenya leg of our round the world trip, so budget options are very important to us at the moment! Nyuma Gereza was the best deal we found... More
