Charged me 4% fee on paying by credit card
Nice place, comfortable, good, tall and clean rooms. Friendly staff, very helpfull. Very good kitchen. It is for sure worth to come a second time
Another fabulous stay at the highly secure, friendly Nightingale. With spacious rooms and amazing staff, it is my destination of choice in Mombasa and I have been 5 times in the last 18 months. Staff, Food, Outdoor Bar and the swimming pool
Occasional Warm Beer!!!!! The Cat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Every thing was perfect. Good stuff. Cheap. Wounderful pool.
Been to kenya 4 times I'm last 2 years by far the best place we have stayed. Lovely owners Catherine & Peter, Humphrey the waiter is great too nothing too much trouble same goes for all the staff. The. Place has everything you need to self cater full cooker microwave, fried freezer and best of all excellent wifi. The pool is great and there's a small pool for kids too. Close to beach only 5 mins walk away, breakfast is included which is a bonus. Just be aware carry your passport everywhere. There is a safe in most rooms but if not the office has one . What more can I say this stay has been brill so we are staying on for a third week.
Staff were friendly, polite and efficient.
Flat and rooms are perfect, spacious and clean. staff and services at bar /restaurant and reception were very professional and helpful for any request I made. Couldnt ask for more. I must spend A special word to the very nice and so kind bar/restaurant waiter who was always ready to be helpful and make my staying confortable. thank you very much
Location is a bit far for many attractions in the area and the main beaches but staff and facility were always good enough for filling the gap. Price at restaurant were a bit above the average
The place has been chosed due to its value for money and location (not far away from Mtwapa, i.e. both close to the beach and a town). You can get it easily from Mombasa (take matatu from Digo Road, the price is 40 Shl, it's better to negotiate the price before you seat, especially when you are first time in Kenya). Leave matatu on the Malindi Road/Road to Serena Beach Hotel junction and take a moto taxi to Nightingale (2-3 minutes by moto taxi, the price is 50 Shl). Do not afraid to do this, it is very funny. All the pictures presented in the review of the hotel are true and reflect the real atmosphere inside the hotel. Huge fence, guarded and clean terrirory. Large pool with different deep is very comfortable, salty water is pure. Enormous appartment of 54 meters with kitchenette in the large room, bedroom with aircon (you do not have to pay for it! (read somewhere you have to)), two cooling fans in every room. Ask for a socket adapter (kenyan sockets are G-type) and aircon remote control at the reception (for free). It is nearly 12 minutes walk to the ocean (by road) and 6-7 minutes if you go by footpath. Charwoman appeared only when we were out (so it seemed to be the appartment is being cleaned itself). Towels and bedclothes are changed every two days. They can wash your clothes if you need. Breakfast was included and served between 8.00 and 10.00. It consists of eggs (either spanish omlette or fried eggs), two toasts with jam and butter, beans, vegetables (normally potato, carrot, green beans or yam), fresh cold mango juice, tea and coffee (in bags). The menu is the same, but it is tasty and definitely not pestered. The restaurant is a part of the hotel complex. The food is great (cooks are real profs), portions are large, good chose of kenyan and european dishes. Try Nyama Choma and Mchicha. They have a bar (with average hotel prices). Special thanks for the service - it is neither more nor less than excellent.
Remote control didn't work and we had to sleep at +16 celsius. (If you want to be sure aircon to work well, take or buy two AA batteries).
the location is new and very nice
beach is situated at 5 minutes walk
Rooms are clean and spacious,staff are courteous and helpful, Wi-Fi is reasonably fast.
Had to cough up an extra 1k for air-conditioning. This I thought was a rip off, ac is supposed to come as a standard especially in the stifling heat at the coast. The location was quite some distance from the main road and from the beach thus necessitating rides on bodaboda taxis which frankly was not funny.
The gooood price I got through Booking.com
The fact that they forced me to buy two beer when I wanted one. They call it "two beers policy"!!???
great swimming pool, felt like jumping in every time I passed it. Nice lounge next to pool. Rooms are large.
not much within walking distance, wifi was spotty from my 2nd floor room.
The two beers policy. They sell a minimum of two beers per person.
nice apartment with comfortable rooms, good bathroom, excellent wifi, very clean
prices in the restaurant were a bit too expensive
Rooms are big. Customer service at the bar was excellent!
Very far from the sea. Swimming pool is almost at the parking. There are many other hotels for this price in Bamburi that are better.
