The Kings post is an experience I would like to relive again and again and again. In spite of the fact that I could put myself in a posh hotel, I chose to stay at the King's Post (2 bed room apartment). I stayed there for over a month and absolutely enjoyed everything about it. It was tastefully done in... More

This was my second stay at Kings Post in the last year. Located in the relatively safe Westlands area Kings Post has excellent accomendations. Rooms and apartments all have full well appointed kitchens. A fitness room and fitness classes are a welcome new addition. Staff is friendly and efficient. Security is tight, always a must in Nairobi. Excellent value.

My husband and I lived at the King Post for a period of 9 months from April 1/2011 to December 31/2011. We had a one bedroom apartment and loved it. Our apartment was beautiful, decorated in a Swahili design. We had everything we needed in the apartment. We especially enjoyed our balcony where we took most of our meals. Our... More

My partner and I stayed at The King Post, in a studio apartment, for a week in July 2010. It is a beautiful place, decorated in swahili/arabic design. Security is a high priority as is comfort. All the staff members are friendly and accommodating. The only problem was that the room was extremely cold. I believe that the architectural design... More

We initially were going to stay at one of the more expensive hotels in Nairobi, but they were sold out ~ 2 weeks prior to our trip. We contacted The Kings Post. They were very helpful. We arrived on a Sunday night. They are in a convenient location (Westlands). Overall, the place was very nice. We had 2 bedrooms. There... More

I stayed at King's Post for three weeks (on a long-term business assignment in Nairobi and my long-term apartment wasn't quite ready when I arrived) in early November, and would highly recommend it to other travelers. The rooms are beautifully decorated (I would say quasi-Indian/Middle Eastern decor) and extremely clean - the maid/cleaning service comes in almost everyday and kept... More

I stayed at the King Post for almost a month while on vacation, and was absolutely satisfied with their service. They're clean, good quality and have this beautiful theme for their design... I want to call it coastal. The location worked perfectly for me...residential yet not too far from the Westlands shopping area. I just loved it, thanks to Karima... More

Hi. I stayed at King Post for 7 months from January to July 2009 while doing a consultancy with the UNHCR. King Post will charge you nightly, or monthly (and yearly as well I think). There is very significant savings to at least paying monthly as the charge for one night is about 3X the charge of 1/30th the monthly... More
