Stayed in a 4 person room upstairs. Me and my roommate caught bed bugs from this place. Dealing with the consequences at home now. Had extra bathrooms outside the room which were nice, but the one in the room either had scalding hot or freezing water, no inbetween.

The Nairobi Airport Stop Over House doesn't claim to be a five star hotel, but it's exactly what it claims to be: close to the airport, clean and well managed. It's basic, but is a great deal for the affordable rate ($20USD for private room with shared bathroom.) I had a fantastic stay, felt safe and was well taken care... More

We stayed here before and after the safari, which are organized. Mrs. Zipporah took care for everything. We feel safe, the rooms were clean, breakfast sufficient, ....perfect for that price. I have to commend the very friendly staff. There are poor only the showers. The water was cold and just drop.

This place is perfect for an overnight stay. The rooms are basic but it is close to the airport, reasonably priced and the people are very reliable. We arrived into Nairobi in the evening and were picked up and transferred straight to the accommodation, no problems. Zipporah, the reservation manager was in constant communication with us leading up to our... More

I stayed a day there. Situated somewhat close to the Jomo Kenyatta Airport & a safe place. A mall (Nairobi Java House Capital Center) with a forex bureau, Restaurants are there within walking distance. Although not luxury & quite expensive, it’s a suitable place if you want to avoid terrible traffic in Nairobi to go to JKH on time.

We stayed here on two occasions, once before a safari and then before our flight out of Kenya. As a budget traveller this was the perfect option for us to be close to the airport without having to pay a fortune for an average airport hotel. The rooms are large and spacious with mosquito nets over the beds, which you... More

I stayed at this hostel in February of 2015. It is located inside a gated community and I felt very safe at all times. The free breakfast is excellent and the staff goes well out of there way to make sure that you are comfortable and taken care of. It is within walking distance of the city center and very... More

I stayed here for one night in between flights. It's ok, some of the rooms don't feel very secure (I had to ask to be moved) and the bathrooms are terrible - hardly any water pressure, cold showers, toilets that only flush some of the time, taps that have so little water coming from them you can't even wash your...

The Reservation Manager, Zipporah, was very helpful for organizing group safaris, which included only parks that I was interested in seeing. The safari prices seemed reasonable and what was promised to us as being included was delivered. The staff seemed to be friendly. Wifi was very poor and as it was constantly going down. Having said that, don't expect quality... More
