Value for money... Almost
Mombasa is short of business hotels of proper standards. If you are a business traveler that got used to certain standards quite simply you will find no biz hotel in town. Yes, there are reasonable and above reasonable hotels, but outside town. Those are typically resorts. In town, either something inexpensive and very old, or Tamarind Village, which is more of a resort, and - Best Western.
Well, for USD77 no ocean view half board (corporate rate, of course), you do not expect much.
Location is good, just along the bridge, but off very busy road, and quiet. You can access most parts of town in the morning without having to drive 1.5 hrs from a beach location.
Rooms are so far its best asset. Large, clean and still new, despite. Beds are good. Aircon is working, and they give you blanket, so you do not have to either sweat or freeze.
There is convenient parking.
I checked in at 1700 hrs, hotel was virtually empty, my room had just been cleaned, floor was still wet. Room next door was being cleaned at the time... Balcony door did not lock. Door security lock did not lock. Yes, everything had been fixed upon request, fast and efficiently.
Breakfast: basic buffet, no frills, except for one or two Indian dishes. Dinner: I was the only customer, therefore I do not have complains on service. If only preparing of food took enormously long, and dinner lasted eternal 1hr 40 min. Next day I asked to cook in advance, and so it was done. Food is average.
All the above would be expected for the rate.
The worst part, though, was water pressure in the shower, or rather almost entire lack of it. Dying streaks of water spend their last energy on leaving the dispenser and then, exhausted, tumble down in pathetic drops. That alone will put your off entirely. Hotel management are aware of the problem, which means not much is going to improve any time soon. less
