We went here with the family after we stormed out of Rolfs Place when they were out of half of the menu items. Why ever go back? This place has the atmosphere, a larger menu with Indian, Swahili -and continental options and far better prices. Our party ordered fish tikka, paneer tikka, chicken Kiev and vegetable curry with rice. The... More

This place is just lovely! It's a small establishment but very homey, cosy and there's something very quaint about it. A lot of people go here for dinner & drinks however we spent the night as well. The rooms are adequate and so warm, loved their beds! And their shower was incredible. The upstairs rooms also have small individual balconies... More

Have been there quite often, to drink some Tusker or a mango juice, accompanied by some garlic naan, take a swim, just relax. Positive: Dinner is good (take the fish thika) Staff is friendly (even took one of them to go out at night) Nice atmosphere (and a good neighborhood, take a stroll around during daytime) Extremely good price/quality ratio...

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.

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.
