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.

I must say that I was surprised at how posh this hotel was, as it is located in the middle of Mombasa city. The rooms were modern, clean, and equipped with an a/c and television. I really enjoyed the customer service. On two consecutive days I had to leave the hotel early (5am) for a safari and my airport departure.... More

I got the option to stay there with the help of my client there. the location is good, in the city center. I guess this is the reason that their price is very high. I pay around $95 for the room, and strangely they give me one luxury type, said other types are not available any more. Their service was... More

I recently stayed one night at the Royal Court and had a mixed experience. I arrived in the morning and the young man at the desk was very helpful in having a room cleaned so I could check in early. I really appreciated this! The room was comfortable but I was surprised at the condition of the room. Though there... More

The hotel is very accessible and very suitable for business meetings within Mombasa island. Staff are very good, conference halls are excellent. Its my favorite for business meetings and stay unless you prefer the beaches.

Staff were friendly and helpful, room was clean and food was excellent. Air conditioning was slightly noisy. Stayed 3 days. If you need to be in central Mombasa then I would definitely recommend it.

The rooms are clean, staff very friendly, food is great. I have stayed here over and over and I really like the place. Has a steam room and sauna and this really helps at the end of a long days work. The friendliness of the staff is a HUGE plus!
