Not bad at Ksh. 4,000 a night for a single room. It's located near Fort Jesus, and each room has an a/c unit. The staff members were very friendly and helpful, but their poached eggs was poor! Their breakfast was actually quite limited, but sufficed for the day. They close the front doors at some point in the night, but...

I have recently returned from a three week business trip to Mombasa . While I worked in Likoni , I wanted to stay on Mombasa island and chose The Lotus Hotel , primarily based on Tripadvisor recommendations . I was delighted with my choice . The hotel was very centrally located in the Financial district but , being down a...

After my disappointing stay at the Royal Court Hotel I was very glad to find this place. Much cheaper, staff are friendly. The food is good and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Free wifi is also a good touch. I had a problem with the shower when I arrived but I told the receptionist and it was fixed immediately....

Lotus is an old Mombasa landmark and remains a solid bet. Good value, well built, the AC and hot water always work. The staff are friendly and efficient. It's in a remarkably quiet corner considering the proximity to the city centre, making it perfect for a business trip as everything's on the doorstep. They don't have indoor parking but there's...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in mid-Feb 2013. We found it to be good value, and a great location for seeing Fort Jesus, Old Town, plus several banking errands that we had to run as well. So easy to get around by tuk-tuk. The air conditioning worked very well, and the bed was comfortable. We recommend...

My friend and I arrived at this hotel in the morning, from the night train to Mombasa from Nairobi. It wasn't easy to find, but once found it was easy to access all the other areas of Mombasa. When we checked in, the receptionist let us stay in the room straight away, which was lovely, however, it was only a...

Situated on a quiet side road away from the noise of the traffic, check-in was hassle free and stress free. Once in the room, everything was found to be meticulously clean. The bathroom actually did have a bath as well as a shower and the hot water supply was constant. My main overall criticism would be the lack of a...

I have stayed there at least three times in the past three years. The hotel is not far from town and you can get there by tuk tuk for sh100. The lane is amazingly quiet. I like the covered verandah facing the quiet lane where you can sip your drink as you while away the evening. It IS a budget...

A part of the hall and the reception (medium to high standard hotels style), the rest of the characteristics of tris old fashioned accommodation are that of a low budget hotel. Actually some hostels and guest houses in town can offer bigger and better furnished rooms. The positive point is the bar area, a funny environment where you can meet...
