4 Signs You’re about to Make a Mistake when Booking Your Mombasa Hotel

4 Common Mistakes People Make when Booking a Mombasa HotelBooking a hotel is far easier today than it has ever been. You can just go online, check out any number of travel sites or even go to the hotel’s main website and go through the reservation process. Mostly all you’ll need is a valid credit card to make a reservation.

While it is certainly easier to book your hotel, whether you going to Mombasa or somewhere else, there are a number of things that could indicate you’re about to make a mistake with your particular choice.

Sign #1: Even though the pictures look amazing, the reviews are suspect.

It’s easy to make a two star hotel appear like a five-star resort with the right pictures and angles. Pay attention to the reviews from previous guests and that will give you a better assessment on not only the amenities but cleanliness and other aspects.

Sign #2: You’re going way over your budget.

It’s a good idea to set a budget for your Mombasa hotel before you begin trying to book it. You might have started looking with a particular budget in mind and then decided the extra $30, $50, or more every night wasn’t that big of a deal. Over six nights, though, that can add up to breaking the bank.

Sign #3: The hotel you choose is miles from the famous Mombasa white sandy beaches.

If you want to spend time at the ocean, you can certainly rent a car and drive yourself there every day, but getting around Mombasa can be confusing for people who have no prior experience in this city. That’s why the majority of people rely on taxi services to get around. If you book your Mombasa hotel several miles from the closest beach, it will reduce the amount of time you spend there and that could have a direct impact on your overall enjoyment on this vacation holiday.

Sign #4: You don’t know anything about Mombasa.

If you’ve never been to Mombasa, it’s best to rely on an experienced travel agent or service to help you determine exactly what type of hotel and the location that’s going to be best for you and your family.
