I stayed at Gracehouse for a couple of weeks in February 2014. The hotel itself is basic, and not at all lush or fancy. It was however, a very comfortable place to be. The staff is very friendly. Sometimes the receptionists seemed a bit abrupt, but I'm assuming it boils down to general misunderstanding. Breakfast was always such a pleasure;... More

I stayed in this small hotel (51 rooms) for 5 nights in early June 2014 and had a wonderful experience. Right from the start when booking I received excellent emails and information - often within minutes of requesting it. The staff were ALL consistently helpful and welcoming. Nothing was a problem. There are two sides to the hotel. I stayed... More

Our group has used Gracehouse for many years and have always been treated well. Rooms are ample and attached to public sitting rooms. Breakfast is fine. Front desk service is thoughtful and caring. Nairobi is expensive lodging so singles are 80USD but growing YaYa center is 3 minutes walk with decent eateries (oddly clumped into Ya Ya Center reviews by... More

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
