Stayed at Royal Court in September 2013, due to it's proximity to Mombasa port. Food was ok, especially if looking for Indian cuisine. But rooms are run down, Water stopped in late night. Also rooms had a lot of cockroaches. Better avoid this hotel.

The Royal Court just plain annoyed me. I was based there over a two week period for work and yes, it has a roof top pool (which I never used), it has a gymnasium (which I never used). The rooms are clean. I know this because I had to change rooms because my shower wouldn't work. For some bizarre reason... More

Hotel generally is ok though located in the mid of the center, clean. But the staff are the worst you can ever come across in any world wide hotel. They seem to have no basic of customer care whatsoever nor curtesy, rude, not polite and behaves in i-don't-care style. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Besides overrated price... More

Popped in here yesterday afternoon to meet somebody - went up to 6th Floor Pool Bar and Restaurant. The view is excellent but that is the only good thing going for it. Ordered a tea and a coffee - tea was cold - coffee was lukewarm - this was after it took 25 (yes 25) minutes to arrive. Waitress was... More

I stayed at royal court in OCT 2012. This was my third trip at this hotel. The hotel is very well run. Not a beach hotel, but if you are in Mombasa to enjoy the town than this is the best play to stay. The restaurant is low price comparing to beach hotel but mid price compare to other town... More

Rooms are OK - efficient , meets basic needs. Roof Top Restaurant gives excellent view at night. Indian foods excellent. But be prepared to shell out Ksh for internet connection at Hotel. Even...

I have always stayed at the Royal Court while in Mombasa...although its not a beach hotel...i find the location ideal for those who prefer to stay in town and yet enjoy the comfort of a good hotel. Ideal for business trips or for those who have friends living in the town center. The rooms are very clean and the service... More

So glad I didn't book or have to pay for this over priced hotel in the centre of roasting Mombasa. The list of things that weren't working was just too much and included - air conditioning, internet (and when it was they charged a fortune for wi-fi, swimming pool, bath/shower, the staff attitude - unhelpful and their favourite expression was,...

I had to stay in this hotel for business and this was the biggest nightmare of my life so far.... Poor service, noisy, unclean, run down and over priced. There is a better hotel next door and at a better price as well.

A convenient hotel at the heart of the city within the island; Got a very good conferencing facility for business purposes. The food is great, especially breakfast offer for half board stay! The hotel is located within walking distances to the Mombasa Old City and Fort Jesus attraction sites.
