“A great Experience at Monalisa Mtwapa”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

Mtwapa is known for its busy nightlife but Monalisa has been able to set itself apart from other establishments with its great location and modern design. From the great staff at the reception to the fantastic rooms complete with a TV, aircon, clean self contained rooms and a balcony. I had the opportunity to visit the rooftop bar which has a pool and lounge chairs. Very cool! At the very affordable price Monalisa is really value for money considering they have gone all out with the design and finishing. I was priviledged to take a tour of the penthouse and all I can say is wow. I would deifinitely consider it for a drink up with a group of friends. Lastly, the food is really good and what i love about it is the home cooked feel to it. I had the pork chops and later the fish and it was cooked very well. As I was leaving I realized I needed a haircut and I was pleased to find a great barber at the Monalisa Barbershop. They also offer massage at the spa which unfortunately I was not able to do.

Overall, great location ( Close to other great restaurants and malls) great design, great service and overall great value for money. I would definitely recommend it.

We stayed at this Hotel for a couple of nights and we were more than impressed with the quality of the place. The staff and the service was 1st class.

The decor is perfect and the rooms are of high quality, clean, LCD TV's and Air Conditioned.

The food and drink is perfect and the atmosphere just makes all the difference.

One of the best highlights of this Hotel is the roof top swimming pool and bar area. Beautifully quiet, with stunning views. Great place to relax.

Also this hotel is in close proximity to both Nyali and Bamburi beach areas, and not far from Mombasa town itself.

It is excellent value for money and with business facilities too, this is a hotel I would highly recommend to anyone.
