This hotel is in an excellent location very close to Yaya Center and with Matatus available right outside the hotel. The rooms are sparse and outdated fairly typical for Nairobi but clean. I stayed here in two different rooms and the tv did not work in either of them but as a major plus the wifi was strong and consistent.... More

Every time I land in Nairobi, which is at least once a year, I stay at Grace House Resort, simply because it embodies the home away from home feeling. Coming in alone, as a couple or with a group of 40 people, the level of service never wavers from Excellent. The rooms are spotless, the people are so friendly, and... More

I spent four nights at the Gracehouse Resort. I was in Nairobi for a workshop at a nearby tech company. The nearby Yaya Centre makes this a good location. The rooms were clean and comfortable (not luxurious by any standards though). The free WiFi was generally pretty good although there was no virtually no signal in the room I stayed... More

Love to stay here when I travel to Nairobi. Clean, peaceful and nice. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The staff are very nice and accommodating. The food that is served in the dinning room is wonderful. They have a tea in the afternoon that is delightful! Can't say enough good things about Gracehouse, love it!!

This is a good location, next door to YaYa Mall. The staff are helpful and friendly although when I arrived late there were not helpful with food options. It feels very safe and you have no worries walking around the neighbourhood during the day, I would not recommend doing so at night. I had no hot water, Wifi was not... More

Came in late from Kenyatta and a friend took me to this place. Once you get over your American response to sharing a common area (sitting room, not baths - these are private) with other rooms on your floor, GraceHouse is Ok. Free extremely slow or nonexistent wifi. Rooms at around $66. Ok for a non fussy traveler. Really clean.... More

A pleasant stay in mid May while on a trip to Nairobi with a group. The staff was very courteous and the grounds and rooms were well kept and clean. On my first night there was in issue with the toilet and someone came up right away to fix it. The bed in my room was a bit firm for... More

The Gracehouse was good for a quick overnight in Nairobi before heading out, and then a day-room on the way back home. Rooms were clean if not a bit sparse, showers had instant hot(ish) water heaters, and breakfast offered a surprising variety.

Our most recent stay was in November of 2014. I cannot say enough great things about the Gracehouse. The staff are very welcoming and accommodating. The grounds are safe and very well protected. The on-site breakfast and dinners were delicious and the afternoon tea/coffee and snacks were delightful. The beds were comfortable; supplied with mosquito netting. Rooms are clean and... More

Have been here for a number of meetings. The hotel is located near the bus stage at yaya centre. If driving the entrance is on Chania road and if walking there is a gate u can use on Ring road, Kilimani. One can visit Yaya Centre and Nakumatt prestige as they are nearby. The hotel has lots of green around... More
