Wow!!!! This is the best hotel I can say under the budget. The hotel is very accommodative, very well secure, very friendly reception, prompt action by staff, good breakfast, free evening tea and snacks. In addition al the above, a minute walk to a shopping mall which is Yaya Center just behind the hotel. What more you want?

It has a very homely feeling. A sitting area for every 3-4 rooms. Offer good snacks throughout the day. Being a Jain I was specially offered eggless vegetarian food. The rooms were also clean and spacious. The washrooms were small but smartly built. Overall I would definitely recommend this!

I stayed at Gracehouse Resort during my most recent stay in Nairobi. It was a good place to be. At first glance, it's not much to look at. It's certainly not fancy. The room was quite basic and the taps didn't all work in the bathroom, but that's not what was most important : the people. Mary, who was the... More

This is one of the hotels where, the moment you are shown to your room by an unfriendly reception. you think, "Oh gosh, I want to get out of here", but then you are too tired to make a fuss or look for altrrnative. My room was old, dark and damp, mosquito net didn't close properly, and it was too... More

Not a fancy hotel -- but the staff was helpful, the breakfast was comparable to the fancier hotels -- and needing to do some shopping at YaYa Center -- the location could not have been better. There is a nice little sitting area outside the sets of rooms -- which provides extra space if sharing a room.

Stayed here for 3 days from 15th April 2013. The hotel is serene. Cool. Plenty of plants and flowers all over. The rooms are extra spacious and very comfortable and equipped with hot showers, free fast wifi connection and TVs among other things. The entire staff is friendly and very welcoming and you really feel at home. I assumed the... More

we were booked into this hotel by our volunteer services organization and at first we thought that we had been booked into something that was above their normal standards...but we realized that the value of Gracehouse is its staff. The room we had was very large, with an ensuite, TV and a unique mozzie net installation. In our case, breakfast... More

But they sent me a little ways down the road to Gracia Guesthouse. It was a nice simple room, with a few options for tv, and an english breakfast included in the price. Nice for a quick trip to Nairobi either before a longer trip or for business.

Great value, superb staff and service - they really couldn't be any more welcoming and helpful, all set in really attractive gardens and with excellent patio areas/tables in the shade - this wee guest house/hotel is definitely worth a visit.
