Finding the ‘Best’ Mombasa Hotels

Night2You deserve the best that life has to offer. When you’re planning a trip to Mombasa, Kenya, you deserve the best hotels.

Just because you don’t have unlimited funds and don’t want to spend a month’s salary on just your lodging for a week in this fun, invigorating Kenyan city, that doesn’t mean you have to settle for a second rate hotel with poor service or amenities.

If you’ve traveled before, then you likely know that for every 5-star hotel, there are plenty of cheaper accommodations to choose from.

How to Define ‘the Best’

Whenever you’re trying to determine the ‘best,’ it’s going to come down to your own expectations. No one else can tell you what the best of anything will be for you; they will only be able to gauge it based on their own personal expectations.

Choose a travel agency that will talk to you and find out just what you’re looking for as far as quality, amenities, and price. From there, they can recommend certain hotels that should be an ideal fit for you.

Be as honest as you can when you share your preferences with this travel agent.

Here are a few things to consider when planning your stay.

How much time will you spend at the hotel?

If you plan on spending a lot of time at the hotel, then you’re going to want comfortable rooms with quality amenities. If you plan on spending most of your time enjoying the beaches, sights, sounds, and historical culture that has made Mombasa a prime vacation destination, and you only expect to shower, sleep, and change clothes in the hotel, then you may not be as concerned with those amenities, such as a spa or outdoor pool.

Will you be traveling with family, kids?

If you’re traveling here with your family or you have children, you’ll likely prefer to focus on hotels that have something to offer them as well.

If you’re traveling here alone, then you might want to stay closer to the night life so that you can go out in the evening, mix and mingle with other tourists or the locals, and have fun.

When you are open and honest about your preferences for accommodations, it will be easier to find the ‘best’ hotel for your stay. The right travel agency will be able to refine your search and narrow it down to a few prime choices.
