The place is really clean and affordable. The neighbourhood is safe and the staff is really friendly. There is no rip off or any unpleasant suprises. I stayed in many locations during my time in Kenya and bush house outperformed every other hotel. The lobby and the garden are large scaled and have a nice atmosphere.

We stayed several days in a triple room in the Bush House and enjoyed every single day. The garden is spacious, no noise from the streets, the rooms are clean and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The triple room could be slightly bigger, but double rooms are very spacious. Also, the price is very fair, especially given the... More

We spent 2 nights at Bush House & Camp in early August. Bush house is essentially a converted family house with a variety of rooms, most of them dorm-type, but some single and double rooms with/without ensuite bathroom. It is not in Nairobi centre, but in Karen, a quiet, treed residential area approx 27km from the airport. Taxis easily available.... More

We booked three nights at Bush House & Camp via booking.com 3 months ahead of our travel. 3 days prior to departure we send an email to the hotel to remind them about the reservation and they confirmed. Upon arrival at the hotel we were turned away due to double booking. Although they provided an alternative accommodation (Karen Embers Guesthouse,... More

I actually did not stay at this property because they gave away our room. Another customer had a cancelled flight so they were allowed to remain in the room I reserved about 6 months ago. I and my travelling partner were exhausted after a long, busy vacation and when we arrived, I asked if we could upgrade to the deluxe... More

Even though it's more of a hostel with its dorm rooms, my wife and I had a room to ourselves in the house. The staff were always friendly and helpful, arranging a taxi to take us to see the giraffes, elephant orphanage and Karen Blixen museum for 6000 shillings (plus entry) and arranged a sandwich and beer even though it...

Very nice place to stay at, staff is above all expectations... however, make sure you get a room inside the house and not in the back house as those rooms are smaller and darker. In the beginning when going towards the back house it seemed a little 'dodgy' but it turned out to be ok (considering how difficult it is... More

We stayed in the Bush House before and after our Safari. We really loved this place. The staff is super friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home. The guest house is in a very quiet (and posh) neighbourhood of Nairobi and surrounded by a beautiful garden. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast on the veranda looking at the blossomed... More
