“A fantastic hotel staff couldn't be more helpful and pleasant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2010

A friend who lives in Mombasa found this hotel for me as it was the cheapest one.

we arrived expecting it to be a bit pokey, we couldn't have been more wrong, i have stayed in 4* hotels in the UK that were worse.

All the staff were fantastic, they just couldn't do enough for you, the guy who ran it was an African who was educated in England (Oxford I think!) who was very friendly and chatted to us every time we saw him.

The rooms were awesome with a/c TV en suite and a very comfortable double bed.

we were the only people staying there who were not African, a massive plus point in my book, and the staff would ask questions about the UK and seemed genuinely interested, but were never nosy or intrusive.

The sports bar was a lively place again mostly local Africans, and had a great atmosphere in the evening.

the beach is only a short walk away, and they had "massai" guards who would come with you and fend of all the various people trying to sell you stuff on the beach.

In short if you want to stay in an authentic locally owned and run Hotel then you wont go wrong, next time i return to Mombasa i will definatley be staying at the Kahama!
