We recruit had our photo shoot here and were very impressed by the quality of decor and that most of the heavy high beds and sofas were made in house. The poolside was gorgeous and there was ample parking. Security was top notch, and we felt truly like we stepped into another world just 10 minutes away from the busy... More

Tucked away in the heart of Westlands is this castle-like haven that made me think, for a minute, that I was in Mombasa. The picturesque architecture is something out of the streets of Lamu. The property is expansive (something that you cannot tell when on the outside) and well-maintained. We had arranged to have our Swedish massages by the pool... More

Thank you so much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your massage. Next time you should try the Hot Stone massage, Aromatherapy or the Deep Tissue. We have 2 therapy rooms indoors and 4 by the pool side. Ideal for a girlie afternoon spent pampering yourself. The Body scrubs and facials are very popular with the ladies as... More

I've been to Nairobi recently for a project and I've stayed with King's post for a month. I could really say that King's post is my home in Nairobi. Not only that the place is nice but the friendliness and hospitality of the staff is what more caught my heart. All ladies at the reception were all very friendly to... More

The King Post is the best value for money place to stay in Nairobi located within minutes of the commercial district of Westlands in a quiet and secure compound. The staff are very helpful and the apartments have all amenities catered for in addition to facilities like a gym and pool. I highly recommend it for business or leisure travel.

We have been staying in King Post for more than a year, and have no hesitation to recommend to any of our friends. The outlook may appear a bit funny (or too gorgeous), some of our friends said "Oh, are you living in the Disneyland/ Aladdin castle?", however, once you enter into the compound and especially rooms, you will just...

If I was to summarize my rather long stay (9 months) at the King Post in four words, I would say Service, Cleanliness, Location, Security. The King Post has top service. From the housekeeping staff who clean the flats to the front desk staff that run the day-to-day, everyone at the King Post is always available to attend to any... More

The King Post is a Swahili Village of 53 apartments that is unique in every sense. It brings about a unique architectural synthesis between the East African coast and the lands across the Indian Ocean, reflecting social and cultural interaction between the regions over more than a millennium. Coming through the gates takes you to a totally different place. Its... More

After having looked at countless apartments in Nairobi, I can say that none have come close to the standards of the King Post. I stayed there for two and half years and I must say that I had a wonderful experience. I felt truly at home away from home. The services provided are of the highest standards, impeccable security, a... More

Have been a frequent visitor to Kenya, King post has been an amazing experience everytime. Great ambiance, helpful staff, and secure compound. The Gym and Spa are really recommended. Close proximity to supermarkets and some good clubs.

My wife and I have been staying at the King Post for over 4 months now and absolutely love being here. If two words had to summarize the king post they would be comfort and efficiency. The tailored customer service we have received over the months has been outstanding. Everything works here. If for some reason it doesn't, it will... More
