This property has clean small rooms & bathrooms, good home cooked food and a very attentive staff. It is owned by a Kenyan Indian family who makes you feel like you are a member of the family. They are the best asset of the property. The property is outside of Nairobi about a half hr. from the airport; and the... More

Recommended by some friends. We went there for dinner with my family and it was a lovely place. Nice ambience. Loved the touch with the jikos, really kept the cold out. The food itself was actually very good. Service was good too but they made us go wash our hands in a sink in the dark. Maybe improve on that.... More

We were in Nairobi for 24 hours at the end of our recent Africa trip and stayed here. The house is charming and the rooms are cozy and beautifully decorated; the staff is friendly and helpful and it's conveniently located close to the airport. Very close to lots of tourist attractions in Nairobi too.

I just got back after spending 3 nights. Very nice Lodge with great staff. My room was a nice size with balcony overlooking pool area. As noted before the bathroom is very small but completely manageable. The rates are very reasonable for what you get. After looking for a awhile I found the electrical outlets. They are on the wall... More

We stayed one night in Osoita as part of the stopover on our way to Amboseli. It is a small lodge close to the Nairobi National park. The neighborhood is not very attractive. Our room was clean but small. The same is true for the bath which is very small. And some renovation is definitely required. Unfortunately there were no... More

I spent Christmas day in this lodge with my family. We had 2 lovely rooms, one being a cottage. Both were comfortable but the cottage seemed quite bare. The shower curtain was dirty too.

I had a one night mid-week stay and I wish I could stay for a week! On arrival I was greeted with fresh fruit juice and Martin the waiter was smart, polite and had excellent customer service skills. I checked into my single room, I had a hot shower-the best thing in the world after a month long camping safari!!... More

A beautiful, cosy place near Nairobi, close to some of the most recommended tourist sites. Great service with very helpful staff, super-tasty food and a well-stocked bar. Beautiful pool. The place is perfect for a weekend get-away or for the first few nights before a safari. Highly recommended!
