Budget option, which could be a lot better with a few minor changes. 1. Staff training. 2. Wifi signal in rooms away from transmitter. 3. Mosquito nets need repairing. We had an early morning bus to catch so had to base ourselves in the city centre. The check-in was slow and the Internet in our room was terrible so we... More

Room 303! The shower head was dirty brown and disgusting. The shower wall was stained and unsanitary. Upside is the staff who are friendly and very willing to assist and the WiFi which was poor but is now strong

It's clean and safe. Staff is friendly. Near the city centre. Air condition and tv in the room. It's a nice place to stay but nothing special. Breakfast is not even worth going to. Go to blue room restaurant for great breakfast!

I recently organised a workshop/conference in Mombasa bringing together 26 people from six countries in Africa, Europe and Asia. I cannot commend highly enough the professionalism and patience of the staff at Hotel Radiance, led by Ahadi Mwaro, who made the meeting run so smoothly.

“The front rooms can be a bit noisy, but you get to see the action from the large windows,and you get accustomed to the noise. The rooms in back are quieter. There is no elevator in the hotel (called a "lift" in Kenya), but the staff will carry your luggage up the stairs.”
