Best pool on the north coast

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 16, 2007

I've never actually stayed at the MBH but every time I come to Mombasa I stay in a guesthouse in town and come to use the pool here. The reason I like the pool here is because it is a nice decent sized rectangular pool not a daft shaped pool that is impossible to swim in a straight line in.

Unique Quality: The hotel is in a lovely spot on the cliff above the beach.

Avoid this hotel

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 29, 2006

I had the misfortune to spend three nights at this establishment and don't recommend it.

It was the original International Style hotel in Mombassa, built in 1970 and apart from a lick of paint I don't think anything has been done to it since. In our original room the taps would not turn off, they were unmarked so you could not tell hot from cold, but it did not matter because they both produced the same tepid temperature, an electrical socket was upside down, the phone socket was hanging by the wiring and not fixed to the wall, the electric shaver point did not work. Worst of all the much vaunted airconditioning did not work either. It could be turned on and was very noisy but made no difference to the temperature. The only way to get cool at night was to have the balcony and landing doors open to get breeze, not something to be recommended as there were monlkeys about. I spoke to a maintence man and he confirmed the only work they did was repair and make do as cheaply as possible.

The food was pretty abysmal too, served buffet style with tables set around a bare open courtyard and the buffet over the other side.

The place was only 20% full, and this was the high season. Most of the guests were geriatric Germans, there for the winter. We were the only English. Several of the men had young African women with them acting in a very amorous manner and there were often unattached women sitting in the main foyer smiling at males passing by. It seems the hotel is so desperate for custom that it tolerates prostitution.

If you are in Mombassa keep well clear of this hotel.

Directions: Go north from the City Centre towards Malindi

Well i recommend you to sleep...

Well i recommend you to sleep anywhere!!, as they have hospitality over there, that they would not let you go to a hotel, but iF you really need one then Try Sun and Sands, Mombasa Beach Hotel, Reef Hotel.
The price is cool, especially if you are coming from Outside Kenya you are able to do all sorts of activities and much more with your money.

Unique Quality: The hotels Ive listed are the 5 astar hotels they have in Mombasa.
