I stayed in Kahama for 2 days, the place is clean and the rooms spacious. I liked the idea of having maasai guards, very creative:) However breakfast is not a buffet, you have to order and the options are very limited. We had to wait for about 30min for our breakfast to be made. I just love the idea of...

The hotel has great crew, rooms and hygiene is good. All travelers around Mombasa, Bamburi should give it a try. I stayed for three day and had the best time ever. The sports bar is somewhere you want to be, great music, affordable beer.

i stayed in Kahama for 2wks in my holiday in June 2012. I like Kahama because it is affordable, clean, strategically placed and has nice rooms. Mombasa is a hot place so the air conditioning in the rooms is a very welcome addition too. I like it that they have a nice swimming pool. Food is great...but dont order for...

Due to the heat I wanted to take a shower but there was no water in the Executive Shower. I called someone in to check...

Value for money, most definitely. Would come back again. Cons: Some TVs need replacement, and the verandah light gets into some of the rooms at night.

I have just walked out of this hotel and moved my 30 strong party to Sun-Sweet hotel. This is because the owner has tried to charge use an extra £1000 on top of the advertised price! He has also inflated the prices of the meals and to make it even worse - a hotel master key was used to get...

I mean you get what you pay for. There was nothing excellent about the place. Everything was average which is ok considering it was the cheapest (KES 11,350 per night for a double) reasonable place we could find in the high season of Dec 2010. As mentioned by another reviewer, they did not have safes in the room and we...

I stayed at the Kahama hotel on business and I must say that was the best decision I made this month. I had to transfer out of the hotels in town after a food poisoning experience (not to name the hotel involved) but the staff @ Kahama welcomed me with open arms. I was there for about a month and...
