Kenya Hotels

Stone House Hotel


  • Staff are very friendly
  • In the heart of Lamu Town


  • Slightly overpriced for what, in reality, are relatively basic rooms

Updated 12/02/2014

Fodor's Review

This lovely 18th-century house is in the heart of Old Lamu. The large en-suite rooms, decorated with old furniture, wooden beams, and colorful linens, are in need of an update but are nonetheless charming. Cool off in the breezy rooftop restaurant, where you'll hear the calls to prayer (Muslims pray five times a day) and donkeys braying as you gaze out across the rooftops of the town. If narrow, steep stairways are likely to be a problem, request a room on the lower floors.
