This has been my previous hotel of choice in Nairobi- a balance of moderate price for Nairobi and quiet gardens with small swimming pool. This was a quick one night stop over to get to airport and it was not a good experience. the Dennis Pritt road rooms were fully booked and i got bumped to the Annexe which is... More

Its disappointing to come to a place after a very long flight finding it to be not what you expected. The electrical outlets didnt work and the front desk staff didnt care. I asked to use the restroom by the dining room (b/c my daughter was using the one in our room) and the guy at the front desk said... More

I stayed at Gracia for nearly a month while working on a project. The staff was incredibly nice but the room is not worth the money. We had hot water about once a week and after weeks of complaining nothing was done. In addition, the internet was spotty. If I am going to pay over $100 a night, I would... More

We were looking for a place to have lunch away from the usual places around the office and ended up at Gracia Gardens. Two of my workmates had buffet and three of us had a la carte. The guys who had the buffet said the food was just ok and nothing special in it. I had pepper steak and a... More

Everything about staying at Gracia Gardens is just fine. The food is fine, the room was fine, the shower was fine. There was really nothing outstanding about this place, but it did the job of a place to lay your head; it was clean and accommodating. I will complement them on their landscaping though. Really lovely. I would encourage the... More

Went there for a conference and stayed for five nights. The hotel in several buildings is located in a beautiful tropical garden. The food in the restaurant was simple, but prepared with great care and was always good. The rooms are fine and cozy, but in my first room the shower had only extremely hot water. Couldn't be fixed so... More

Through my travel agent in Kenya, I booked for one night. When my plans changed (which could happen when you are on holiday), I had to cancel this booking, which I did a week in advance to ensure full refund, only to find out that they do not refund at all if you cancel seven days before arrival. So just... More

We spent one night in Garden hotel, which was allright, and in a quiet street. However, one of the pillows had a strong smell,as if the sheets hadn't been washed properly. Another night we spent in the Gracia hotel, which works together with the Garden hotel. This hotel was a bit disappointing. We had a view over a noisy street,... More

Make no mistake, if you want a sleek, business hotel with mod-cons and super-fast broadband, this is probably not the place for you. The pool, when I was there, was empty (albeit surrounded by a charming courtyard), internet access was slow, but normally available and the garden was delightful, but backed on to a river with an 'interesting' odour. But,... More
