The reception are has recently undergone renovation, and it looks really nice, but the rooms need renovating as they are now looking a bit shabby, especially the bathrooms. It is good value, but for the price you can probably get a nicer hotel as there is so much choice in Nbo. It is a good downtown location. The buffet lunch... More

Located in the heart of Nairobi, this is a guesthouse in every sense of the word. It is no frills and meals are set buffets with little choice. I wanted to get washing done after a month trekking Africa but they excluded underwear so I did my own. Room was comfortable, the one buffet meal I had was OK and... More

We think this place was overpriced at almost 7000 KSH for a double room per night. It's a good 10 minute walk into central CBD. Rooms were OK but not clean and bathrooms rather dirty. Breakfast is included and also wifi but breakfast is simple

I spent 3 nights at this Guest House in June 2013. My room was simple but clean. I could hear the people in the other rooms and the bathroom needed some serious upgrade. The shower had no pressure and really hard to adjust to a warm temperature. A copious breakfast is served in the main building but unfortunately every morning... More

The setting around the facility is great and value for you money is great. Rooms are nice and well maintained and clean. Selection of food at the meals could use some improvement but food quality was fine. Screens in the windows would be a good idea.

Basic but comfortable, staff really friendly and helpful, very secure with 24hour guards at gates, fantastic breakfast! If you are stopping through Nairobi this is ideal, although probably not ideal for those with very young families or seeking luxury.

Though it is a far cry from luxury, the ACK Guest House Nairobi is located in a very convenient location and serves delicious food (especially breakfast). As others have stated, the hotel is totally safe and solid. The guest rooms (especially the ones located in the behind the main building) are spacious and have all of the necessities. Since this...

The ACK Guesthouse is a safe and sensible place to stay in Nairobi. You don't need to stay in a fancy, overpriced hotel. ACK is a solid choice. It's not fancy, but the rooms are nice and comfortable, the breakfast is fine, service is good, and the location is excellent. It's located close to some of the very expensive hotels... More

First visit here, I had been warned not to expect too much, However the staff were very friendly and efficient, the rooms perfectly adequate and self contained. I was in a sinlge room, and there are twins in adjacent blocks. The rooms are en-suite. There is a dining room and it is buffet service. Food was hot with a small... More
