We stayed here on two occasions; before and after our safaris through Kenya and Tanzania. Both times we stayed in the cheaper "classic" rooms. Rooms and common areas are kept clean and tidy. Our room was small, but fine for a couple of days at a time. It was also a bit noisy as it overlooked a major highway, but... More

The Kahama hotel is a nice place with decent facilities for an affordable price. I stayed here for a couple of days when I arrived in Kenya for an internship. At the hotel you feel very welcome. Unfortunately they are just on the other side of a very big roundabout of the city which is not the best place to... More

My sister and I stayed here for a weekend in Nairobi - we had been travelling in Tanzania. Don't let its proximity to the new highway put you off, it's actually a very good location in the sense that we were able to walk pretty much anywhere we wanted to go easily. Of course, there are some places you might... More

Stayed with family for 2 days on our return from safari. The hotel other then the location was OK for the money spent but the location was terrible. The hotel was next to a slump the fact that you cannot leave the hotel premises after sunset was very disturbing and no other resturants other then the hotel resturant near by

Stayed at Kahama Hotel in Nairobi which was great value for money. The Manager 'Tom' was great and was very accommodating to our group and I am strongly considering Kahama as our stop off location when we go through Niarobi 4 times per year. Rose was great too. Check in process took a little longer than I cared for considering... More

Their motto is 'economy with style' and they do it well. If you're coming from the USA for a safari, especially from the western US it's nice to hang out for 48 hrs before to kick some of the jet lag. The Kahama is perfect for that. Walking distance to the Nairobi National Museum or you can hire a driver... More
