Read the reviews and after comparing with some budget hotels in the same area I decided to give it a try as it looked better. I got a room early in the day and yes, the rooms are spacious.

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. But after staying one day I experienced that room is quite sub-standard with short of even bare basic amenities. Staff behavior at reception was ok on first day but was terrible on subsequent...

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 asked the reception ladies why I was not instructed and explained upon check in about how things work here. All I was told was I am supposed to do it like everyone else.....[doesn't... More

This is just in the heart of the city, off Moi avenue, yet its location is too calm and quiet. there is no noise of city traffic etc. the service is poor, accommodation is just ok or I can say below standard and certainly not at par with other hotels in the city at same cost. 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.
