Where to stay in Mombasa

Not unlike most coastal cities, Mombasa offers many hotels and guesthouses along its shoreline. Mid-range accommodations are clustered between the old town and the Kibokoni neighborhood. If you want some peace and quiet away from the city bustle, explore the area near Haller Park, where you'll find a variety of holiday resorts stretching along the coast.
