Stayed three nights on business. Staff was friendly & helpful at all times. Lighting in room was adequate at best, as there is no night table lamp. Chair at desk was clunky & heavy = uncomfortable. Bath had wonderful hot water (solar), bar soap was provided but no other toiletries (shampoo, etc). Towels were clean but starting to wear, getting... More

This was a lovely place - the rooms are comfortable, there are a few channels to choose from and the restaurant area is beautiful. Lovely and outside with great service. I dont eat meat so they specially made something for me which was delicious. The WIFI does not work in the rooms so head outside if you need to get... More

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
