Rolf's Place is unique. The staff provide a caring and personalised service which just adds to the magnificent location and the boutique nature of this wonderful place. After busy working days in the heart of Narobi, this is a sanctuary to return to overlooking the National Park. Rolf is an accomplished chef and evenings can be spent hanging over a... More

We stayed here 2 weeks and the staff were wonderful. very friendly and waiting on your every wish. the food is also very good. much of the produce is grown on the property - the milk, eggs, fish, and vegetables are all freshly picked on site. The accommodation has lots of character and luxurious. And the great thing I loved... More

Rolf's place is definitely a place worth visiting a couple of my friends and i went there over the weekend for paintballing and we had the time of our lives. The view is out of this world, the shooting was lots of fun and for the food, those who went for ala carte menu enjoyed finger licking meals and the... More

I visited Nairobi to catch up with friends and had a midweek break at Rolf's Place so I could visit the local National Park and other sites. I have lived and worked in Africa before and so I have to express I was hit by waves of nostalgia on my arrival at the Hotel. Essentially the lodge is Rolf's home... More

Rolf is a character, and so is Rolf's Place. The food is tasty, the housing beautiful and interesting, a true out of Africa experience. Rolf made it a point to be personable, also sent us with 2 slices of his cheese cake - very delicious and very sweet of him. Will remember this once in a lifetime experience, and definitely... More

We didn't stay at the hotel, just went for lunch one Sunday afternoon. They were obviously overwhelmed with a large corporate group of around 20 - 30 delegates, which meant we got the brunt of their service - hopefully it's better on a quieter afternoon but If you have space for that many people, you should be able to handle...

Stayed here as a stop over with family and 6 year old child. Rooms below average, and for the price should have been alot better - not particularly clean, duvet without duvet cover (yuk), and mouse droppings in bathroom.... Breakfast was Ok, but after reading a few other reviews about the hotel and the owners responses, I would have expected... More

I understood that Nairobi was a very unsafe place, especially for white female solo travellers. And it was my first time in Africa… I am very glad I found Rolf's Place hotel in Nairobi. They are located in Karen Langata, on the edge of Nairobi National Park. They sent a driver to pick me up and I managed to avoid... More
