Mombasa in detail


Mombasa has a number of decent hotels, though in general the more upmarket places tend to be far from the city centre. Dirt-cheap choices are in the busy area close to the bus stations on Abdel Nasser Rd and Jomo Kenyatta Ave. Lone female travellers might want to opt for something a little further up the price scale and away from the bus station area, which is rather sketchy.
