This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We had a wonderful three-day stay in JamboHouse. It's located right in town so it's easy to get to restaurants, the sea front, the museum, etc. It's also very easy to walk to the beach. Breakfasts at JamboHouse are delicious and the team (especially Arnold) is great! Recommendations, bookings for dhow trips, etc. - they help you with it all. Would highly recommend!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Due to the homepage of Jambo Guesthouse we expected an accommodation at the beach. Unfortunately, this was a big misunderstanding. It takes 20 minutes to get to the beach - on a boat!
Jambo Guesthouse is situated in the centre of Lamu town, reachable through narrow dirty streets.

Jambo House has a nice location in old town and has a very pleasant rooftop terrace overlooking Lamu. Rooms are clean and comfortable, with fans and mosquito nets and well-maintained bathrooms. The owner is exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable and is happy to help with arrangements for donkey rides, day trips to Shela and other nearby beaches, dhow cruises, etc. Would definitely recommend Jambo House and would gladly stay there again myself.
