I saw some bad reviews for this hotel, but it was all fine for us. Convenient set-up for a family of four and in a very good location. It is not a beach hotel, but nevertheless a convenient location for someone that spends one or more nights in Mombasa.
Had a great time in mombasa. Lotus hotel was a great place to stay while visiting the city. Conveniently located. Fantastic staff and hospitality. Breakfast was yummy, and their dinner fare was wonderful too.
Stayed here for one night won't be going back. Run down hotel- towels were dirty and old and the place was not so clean. Disinterested staff- the staff watched us carry our bags and did not offer to help.
If you're in for a Noise filled atmosphere and sleeping with your EARS stuffed with ear pads then you can come to stay here!! A nearby church or music hall is so noisy that you can imagine that you are right in the middle of it all!!! And this is not just on Sunday it happens…
Initially when I stayed at this hotel two years back, I had no reason for complaint. But the standards have slowly dwindled downwards from the quality of food to lack of wifi and now even getting working television network is a problem. All this while the price of the rooms…
"Try the West or S/West end rooms, may those are more quieter due to being farthest from the noisy church hall."
"If you are tall ask for a room with a bigger bed."
"carry your own shower gel, double rooms are large and spacious, carry your laptop they provide free Wi-Fi"
"Insist on a room with good AC coz Mombasa town is very hot and humid."
"Get the remote for your air conditioner so you can control it at night, otherwise you have to go to reception every time you want to change the temperature."
