      I had great time in Lamu by the great help of Arnold who is the owner of JamboHouse. He is an excellent host.He gave me all necessary information about Lamu and he arranged excellent tours for me. I enjoyed all the tours that he arranged. Tour guides were so nice and knowledgeable too. Facilities of the hotel is quite convenient. The breakfast at the terrace was so delicious. Hotel was so clean. I wish i could stay longer.

      Only good things to say about this place. Arnold, the owner, is very present and make sure he does most of it himself. He looks after us in a very caring and personal way. The breakfast is delicious, prepered by Tamaris and Fred, friendly staff. The place in very clean. We Loved it. Highly recommended.

    • My favorite spot in Kenya

      I travel about half of the year and nearly never stay more than three nights in one place, but between Lamu's appeal and the fantastic place Arnold provides at Jambo House, I stayed six with him and loved every moment of it. Jambo House is well run, clean, and all three of the staff members were fantastic. Breakfast was delicious and fresh, the mosquito net was excellent, and I can't remember another hotelier ever providing as much great information about the area as Arnold did. He has all the connections to do whatever you want to do, and even more, to link you with the community. The honest part: if you're looking for TripAdvisor photo spreads and white linen, look somewhere else, perhaps Shela (where the fancypants folk stay and spend). Jambo House is for travelers, I found it very comfortable, but if you don't like narrow dark alleys after dark: -->Shela. I'm too embarrassed about the idiotic mistake I made as I was leaving and forgot to check the in-room safe, so you won't get to hear how Arnold ran after me and returned my valuables to me as I was literally boarding the boat to leave. But I already loved the place back when he was providing merely excellent service and accommodation. I would love to return to Lamu and if I do I will definitely book the whole time at Jambo House.

    • Great host. Great location.

      What a great experience! Firstly, if youre reading this and wondering whether to visit Lamu or not... book now. This island town is so unique, the culture is breathtaking, and the people are incredibly welcoming and friendly. JamboHouse was the perfect base for our Lamu adventure. Upon arrival, our host Arnold gave a thorough briefing that included recommendations and advice that only a local can share. The accommodation itself was everything you could ask for - clean, comfy and welcoming (plus the best brekky weve had since being in Kenya). Thank you to Arnold for your warm, welcoming hospitality, and for all of your advice and recommendations.
