I had a beautiful suite of rooms. It was very comfortable and I found the staff polite and helpful, as they arranged transport for me to visit the Karen Blixen museum and suggested other places to go.

The hotel has a great ambiance with clean rooms and access to all amenities that one would expect out of a world class hotel. The view from the rooms is quite good and the staff is nice & courteous. The Food variety is good with lots of Indian & Halal food available to cater for international guests. During my stay... More

This is hands down one of the nicest hotels in Nairobi. It's gorgeous, clean, modern and comfortable. The staff was helpful and the food at Lucca is legitimately great, despite the mediocre décor, and I spent time in Italy, so my standards are high. They even sent someone up to my room with the rest of my focaccia bread because... More

This hotel was neat, clean and comfortable. They took care of the smaller details such as towels and water bottles in the gym. The hotel restaurant were also very good, with a selection of western and pan-asian food.

The Villa Rosa is one of the new hotels in Nairobi, opened over a year ago. So, as you'd expect, it looks great and still shiny and new. Staff are really good, excellent wifi and amenities within the hotel. Although it doesn't have an outside space per se, it doesn't feel claustrophobic and a warm kenyan Jambo awaits you. Have...

This is one of the gems of the Kempinski chain. It is a new hotel, but under the management of Kenneth the hotel runs like a swiss watch. The room decor is perfect for the location. The food in the Italian food is prepared by a real italian and is amazing. When in Nairobi the only choice is this hotel... More
