This was not nice. When we entered the room there was a huge cockroach beside my bed. The blankets were dirty and the staff seemed not interested. The sleeping was certainly not nice, noisy inside and outside. Only the waiter at breakfast was friendly. For me it is very clear... I will never go to this hotel again.

It costed 150 US Dollar (which is quite expensive because there was no food included but since the park entrance fee for an... More

Not bad at Ksh. 4,000 a night for a single room. It's located near Fort Jesus, and each room has an a/c unit. The staff members were very friendly and helpful, but their poached eggs was poor! Their breakfast was actually quite limited, but sufficed for the day. They close the front doors at some point in the night, but... More

After my disappointing stay at the Royal Court Hotel I was very glad to find this place. Much cheaper, staff are friendly. The food is good and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Free wifi is also a good touch. I had a problem with the shower when I arrived but I told the receptionist and it was fixed immediately.... More

Lotus is an old Mombasa landmark and remains a solid bet. Good value, well built, the AC and hot water always work. The staff are friendly and efficient. It's in a remarkably quiet corner considering the proximity to the city centre, making it perfect for a business trip as everything's on the doorstep. They don't have indoor parking but there's...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in mid-Feb 2013. We found it to be good value, and a great location for seeing Fort Jesus, Old Town, plus several banking errands that we had to run as well. So easy to get around by tuk-tuk. The air conditioning worked very well, and the bed was comfortable. We recommend... More

My friend and I arrived at this hotel in the morning, from the night train to Mombasa from Nairobi. It wasn't easy to find, but once found it was easy to access all the other areas of Mombasa. When we checked in, the receptionist let us stay in the room straight away, which was lovely, however, it was only a... More
