I have just spent the past 5 nights at the New Palm Tree Hotel. I was here for a teacher workshop. The other hotels suggested were in the same area but much more expensive. I found the New Palm Tree Hotel to be a good, budget hotel for someone basically just needing a clean place to sleep. I found the... More

The staff is what sold us on the hotel, even if the rooms were a bit dirty and in need of maintenance. The price was good for Kenya and Mombasa, especially the location if you need to catch an early bus. This hotel could be a charmer!

Stayed here for 2 nights while stopping over in Mombasa. In a nice location close to Fort Jesus, and the interesting art and craft streets of the town. Be warned it looks nothing like photos on their website, they must have been taken about 15 years ago. However, it feels secure, its comfy enough, quite a good price, and their... More

The hotel has a great courtyard on the first floor where you can spend your time with a book and a drink. The location is amazing although it can get pretty lonely at night. The complimentary breakfast is good until you spot the cockroaches! The room was not clean, the floor has a layer of dust permanently attached to it.... More

The hotel is clean and quite comfortable. There is AC in the room and free wifi in the hotel. The breakfast was simply but really good. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It's really close to the old town and the fort Jesus. Good value for the price.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in March 2014. This very basic hotel is situated in Mombasa downtown (Mombasa Island), about 20 minutes walk from the Fort Jesus. Good things about this hotel: (1) downtown location; (2) relatively low price; (3) water availability 24/24; (4) air conditioning (very noisy but also much needed). Bad and very bad things:... More

I stayed for three nights in this hotel, and I was very satisfied with my stay. By Kenyan standards the price is good value - the staff are very helpful and friendly, the rooms are clean, and the location is great. There is a cafe, some computers for internet use, and good Wifi on the roof terrace. I definitely recommend... More

Let me start by saying I've stayed in much worse places over the 17 years I've been traveling in Africa. However, for a place that does online check in and gets some very good reviews on tripadvisor, this place was a disappointment. Rooms were very run down, my toilet was not flushing and it took a long time for the... More

I've stayed in Mombasa a few times - always on a budget - and this is the best of the budget hotels i have seen. The staff were great, really helpful, full of sensible advice re security etc and know the town and what its mix of international travellers want. Staying here in the old town helps you to have...
