We chose to stay at Hotel Troy based on the location and the reviews found on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. We stayed in the Executive Suite and found it simply decorated, clean, with ample space for our luggage and selves. The bed was soft and comfortable. A mosquito net was provided and, even though we did not need to... More

I think of a hotel as just a necessary detail- somewhere to sleep. With those expectations, I thought this place was fantastic. I agree with other reviewers that it felt more like a B&B than a hotel. The service was fantastic. The room was clean and well-kept (expect firm mattresses), and the wifi worked well. There is also a pool... More

I really enjoyed my weekend in Troy. It has more of the B&B/ vacation villa feel than hotel, what I loved. I felt really secure there, much more secure than in the big hotels in the center of Nairobi. It was super quiet and relaxing there, in the evenings you can only hear the chirps and sound of some animals... More

We recently spent four days and a further one day at this hotel on the outskirts of Nairobi. It could not be in a better place for the nice area of Karen and its shops. You do need transport for this hotel it is a long walk to the nearest Mall.. The staff are lovely and were so helpful they... More

The hotel is located in a nice area, just a short distance from Nairobi National Park. A ten minutes walk takes you to a nearby shopping mall. Be careful along the road! The garden is nice. The rooms are ok, but they are clean and both the toilet and the shower works. The quality of the food depends on what... More

Stayed here two nights on our way to a safari in Tanzania. Staff very helpful. Accommodations fine. The location is sufficiently isolated that without a car you have not choice for meals but their restaurant. We'd rate the food "acceptable". They provided a driver (at modest cost) to take us to some nearby places of interest.

Stayed here for 2 nights with a group of friends before a safari in August 2014. We wanted to do a safari that didn't break the bank and as tmoffwood says below, hotels in Nairobi are expensive, so we were really glad we found this place. We were collected from the airport by the hotel's own shuttle - it takes... More

Travelling in Africa is not easy, so being able to stay at a clean, affordable hotel is exactly what is needed- and that is exactly what Hotel Troy offers. The rooms are basic, but contain everything that one needs, a comfortable bed, a shower and a friendly and helpful reception. The food at the restaurant was decent (in comparison to... More

Hotels in Nairobi are quite expensive, so when we found Hotel Troy which such reasonable prices, we were very happy. The hotel is about 30 minutes from the airport, close to the nature reserve. It is not within in walking distance of most attractions but we were just staying one night, so this didn't bother us. The staff is so... More
