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

Location, price, staff and room size make this small hotel a good find. The staff could not have been more helpful. True, the room was a little tired, but it was large and had everything needed in it. Free wifi another bonus, as was the sitting room outside the door with coffee and tea-making facilities, and the free morning and... More

This hotel is surprisingly cheap for Nairobi, yet it includes a free breakfast which could keep you going for hours! Many rooms have twin beds for a group where people are willing to share, the price is amazingly low. As others have commented, it is well placed next to the Yaya centre, with a back path leading to it. It... More

The hotel is very basic but the courtesy and friendliness of the staff is outstanding. They are helpful and very accomodating. Rooms are modest but are kept exceptionally clean. Wi-fi decent. Another advantage is the location right next to Yaya shopping mall so even ifyou are not mobile you can dash to the shops for whatever necessities you need. Best... More

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
