I have stayed at the Manson several times in the past two years, most recently in May 2015. I like it because its affordable, its in a great location, the rooms are well maintained and the breakfast offering is quite good for the price. However, not all of the rooms have TV, but then, it really depends on how much... More

I was on a business trip to Mombasa for 2 days and I choose to stay this hotel as it was cheap and close to Moi Avenue.

For a budget trip, mason is fine with very friendly front desk..nice room service..laundry. It is located right in the City Centre (excellent) but it could get very noisy outside yet fun for those who enjoy the night life.The room I stayed in was very small and it had mosquitoes but they had mosquito nets and would disinfect on request.

I stayed there for... More

We stayed at The Manson Hotal again on the 29th December for the one night again, mainly becaus it was convenient to the coaches for the trip back to nairobi the following Morning and the fact they don't charge you for arriving before 10am. As arranged we turned up just about 9am the taxi driver had had problems finding me... More
