We stayed at Ole Dume for a month when we arrived in Kenya for an 8-month work secondment based in various cities. Overall we were impressed with the apartment. It was well furnished and equipped - we only ended up buying a coffee press, tin opener and small sharp knife to complement what was provided. The cleaning service was good,... More

I recently stayed at Ole Dume apartments for six months and would highly recommend it for business or holiday travelers. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hot water and electricity are consistent, which is often not the case in Nairobi. When the power goes out in the neighborhood, the generator immediately kicks in. The apartment has excellent security. The... More

My family (including kids) stayed at The Hamptons in January 2014 and on the first day they assigned us to a room with no hot water. So after unpacking we had to pack again and move to another room. Then we had planned on staying for 2 weeks but after the 1st week we had no water in our apartment.... More

We have stayed here a few times. Rooms are good size and comfortable. However the top rooms are under water tanks and pipes that make a huge amount of noise all night. When we had this problem last time we asked to be moved. When booking this time we specifically asked not to be on the top floor. But they... More

Well located in the area we visited, pool, gym and salon. The small kitchen and living room was appreciated. Also that the toilet was in a separate room. Heater in the appartment was convenient. The breakfast, two choices were adequate. Friendly staff.

We stayed here based on what the website advertised. But only to find no towels as they were all wet (their tumble drier had broken), toilet paper, hot water and gas. We therefore had to rely on the Hampton's kitchen menu. But half the menu is not available. The breakfast, which was included for 2 out the 6 in our... More

Different and loud music at the pool, restaurant and gym in the same time. Kids from the neighoorhood cole over the weekend to play and scream and there is no available sunbed for the customers. Room cleanning is usually really poorly done.

I stay regularly at Ole Dume for work. It is convenient for the office in Ngong Road and so that cuts down the hours otherwise spent in Nairobi traffic. It is a short walk from Valley Arcade shops (quite small) and a 20 minute walk from other shopping centres such as Junction, Yaya, the Greenhouse and Prestige. The apartments are... More

I have stayed there for the past month and expect to be there for two more. Contrary to an earlier review, the 'hotel' is almost on Ole Dume Road (i.e. at the end of a 40 meter driveway). A few minutes off the Ngong Road, which is very slow into the city centre due to heavy traffic, and current widespread... More

I have stayed at the Ole Dume apartment hotel twice in Mar 12 and Nov 12. It offers value for money in a city that seems to have trouble generating affordable mid-range price and quality accommodations. Unlike when traveling to e.g. Bangkok getting accommodation in NBO is something that requires research in advance, in my opinion. Thus i found Ole... More
