We stayed at Nairobi Airport Stop Over House for two nights in Nov. 2013. The pick-up and drop-off worked well and the hosts were very kind. The rooms we had were tidy and clean. It fullfilled all our good expectations and we look forward in coming back again.

We were booked for 3 stays at this "HOSTEL" and after giving it a second chance, cancelled the 3rd. stay. Rooms are bad...bathrooms are worse!!! Only consolation was some of the staff were helpful. It is situated in a pretty rough part of Nairobi, hense the gated area and compound. Also not as close to the airport as we were... More

Located in a gated neighborhood and a gated compound, saftey is not a concern. I was greeted by a lady who was very nice. My room was large, 2 double beds, with a private bath that was actually an enclosed porch but the room and bath were clean. I arrived about 6 PM and it was like an oven in... More

The Nairobi stopover hotel is a place close to the international airport where your tip can start or end. The booking went well, email response took place within a day. They already booked my bustrip to Moshi in Tanzania! When I arrived, the lady of the house was very friendly. The room I got in the back was clean, with... More

For our last night in Kenya and an early flight the next morning back to Amsterdam we needed a save place to stay without any ambition to visit Nairobi this time. This hostel / guesthouse is a fit for purpose choice to do this. Friendly and helpful staff (escort to Capital Mall, 10 min walk max., airport pick-up and drop-off)... More

As described previously, the rooms here are nothing spectacular but have good mosquito nets and are clean. However it is the safety and helpfulness of the staff which mean it gets a 5 star rating. I would definitely stay here again and it is particularly good if you are doing multiple trips and using Nairobi as your base. The stop... More

I used this place for like 6 hours and I must say the Stop Over House is a much better place for anyone transiting through Nairobi than any other joint in the hood. The staffs are amazing and very friendly. Makes you feel very much welcomed. And the environment is much better hygienically than one other place I visited.. Overall... More

We were on a budget, we stayed 1 night in Dorms, it is a room of 6. The beds were very comfy with good mosquito nets. Great location, 10min drive to the airport and a short bus drive to Nairobi Center, very close shopping mall and restaurants (inc a very good African one - ask staff). Hot showers. The staff...

We stayed here for one night at first, having flown into Nairobi, before taking the bus to Moshi the next day to climb Kilimanjaro. The staff were very kind and helpful. Zipporah was in very regular contact and we were collected from the airport promptly and had help boarding the bus to Moshi from just outside the hotel. The hotel... More
