Default Mombasa hotels

Hi,

Could anyone recommend some beach hotels in the Mombasa region. Ideally not
to far from the airport and around the £50 per night, per room (based on 2
people sharing). So $70/£50 for the room.

Thanks

Jon.

P.S. Are taxis fairly cheap in Kenya and are they safe?

Jonathan,

for the most part yes, provided you fix the price before the
trip, ideally before you sit in the car.

No. They have accidents. Perhaps you can tell the driver to
drive not too fast and keep a distance. :-)

Default Re: Mombasa hotels

At Mombasa airport, outside by the taxis, you will find a list of fares.
It is very out of date and includes several hotels that are no more.
This is the MAXIMUM you should pay, and you can negotiate down. Just let
the drivers know in a loud voice where you are going.
There are no beach hotels close to the airport. You are probably looking
for one north of Mombasa, south of Mtwapa. Try Mombasa Beach, Nyali
Reef, Silver Beach, Severin Sea Lodge, Bamburi Beach, Kenya Beach or
Plaza - and there are more. Many have web sites. Most have deals with
package tours, so try your travel agent.

Default Bamburi Beach Hotel

Hi thanks for the advice,

I'm thinking the Bamburi beach hotel will be the best bet for the budget
concerned. If anyone has any comments on this hotel then I wouldn't mind
hearing them.

Thanks

Jon

We always enjoyed it. It tends to be noisy and busy, but otherwise is
just fine. Peter. Visit
