I stayed at Khweza during my 1 week to Nairobi. I was happy to afford staying there for a week without breaking my pocket and the proximity to the city was an added advantage. Friendly staff and good African food. I'll be definitely coming back next year!

Not in the best of areas. Should be careful at night time or walking back. Staff are friendly, good breakfast in the AM with view of Nairobi. Has a greenhouse area in the roof which is a good place to hang at night time.

Thank you for writing this review. We are glad you enjoyed the breakfast, the service and the rooftop restaurant. We do realize we are located along a busy street, however, we are right across from the Administration Police Post, and like every other part of the city, one has to be careful and alert. We have taxi service available at... More

I stayed a few nights at Khweza before my big overland trip began. The staff was very helpful. They were able to arrange rides and tours for me around Nairobi and escort me into the city center at night so I didn't have to go alone. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the wifi worked well by East African... More

In search for a place to stay in Nairobi between stays elsewhere in beautiful Kenya, we booked this small very affordable hotel (better description thn B&B). Th staff proved very eager to help with our queries, the rooms were basic but clean. The beakfasts we took on the rooftop were definitely a plus. Only drawbacks were the neighbourhood (unfit for...

This bed and breakfast is most notable for service. I have never experienced a budget hotel with such a solicitous staff - everyone I talked to was kind, friendly, entertaining, compassionate and eager to please. For 4 of the 7 nights I spent at Khweza, I went daily to the hospital, visiting my travelling partner who was having a medical... More

I stayed for 2 nights to tour Nairobi. An excellent driver from Khweza, Fred, fetched me at 7am from NBO and allowed me to check in early. My room was small but adequate for the price. Wifi was poor in most areas and nonexistent in my room at the far end of the property. Room is hard to ventilate without... More

We began our holiday here for a couple of nights before our trip to Mombasa. A great hotel with wonderful staff who arranged taxi's, car hire and anything else we required. Rooms were clean and tidy and the restaurant was excellent. Thank you to all of the very hard working staff.

We started and ended our trip to Kenya at Khweza. The staff were so friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome.
