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

That room was comfortable, but no view and had windows that didn't latch completely. The next time, i took a room on the... More

I stayed at Kahama for 3 nights and was very happy. The rooms were nice and clean and the staff very, very friendly. The restaurant was good and the breakfast was one of the best, I had in Kenya. There are always taxis available, but museum and Central Business District are in walking distance. Just be careful when you walk... More

The location of the hotel is nice, walking distance from the city center and the museum. The restaurant was nice and so was the food at reasonable prices. The room was nice and so were the beds. Wifi worked well in the restaurant.

The Kahama Hotel is an excellent choice for visiting Nairobi and at really good value too compared to other places. The rooms are very nicely decorated, spacious and clean.

Though not ideally situated (surroundings, vincinity of a heavily jammed and all-day noisy roundabout), this hotel offers all the guarantees of comfort one might expect for a short stay in Nairobi: good value, good restaurant, wifi, breakfast, taxi service and, mostly appreciated, a great staff (hotel and restaurant) always smiling and ready to help.
