I stayed here for 5 days and the hotel was amazing. What made it perfect was the staff, faultless service.the food was very reasonably priced and the room I had was just the right balance of old world and new modern technology. $285 per night sounds a lot however trust me it's well worth it.

The rooms are wonderful and the staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a nice variety of restaurants in the same vicinity (the oriental one is terrific) and the hotel makes the best Darwa cocktails. The breakfast is great too and you can choose your newspaper of choice every morning.

For my second trip to Kempinski, my wife came along. We made a six nights stop over before heading to vacation in Zanzibar. What else can I say: while in Nairobi, I have stayed at the Intercontinental, my former favorite - Serena, and the Fairmont. They all have their pros but they can't hold a candle against Villa Rosa.

This is an oasis from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi. Contemporary colonial yet tasteful decor is very comforting. My balcony room was very spacious. Super comfy bed and lovely soft sheets. Well equipped gym. Breakfast buffet was small yet indulgent with some original selections. The restaurant itself offers a relaxing ambiance, detached from the locality. Great experience not to...

The architecture of Villa Rosa is breathtakingly beautiful. The staff is efficient, Great facilities, the reception lounge is very well thought out. Security is definitely top notch. The view from the upper rooms is breath taking. This is a hotel, I would stay in over and over again.

I was here with my wife in the first week of August in 2015, as a one-night stop at the start of a tour around Kenia's ashtonishing national parks and their amazing wildlife. This is a beautiful property, located slightly outside of Nairobi's downtown, but still enjoying a very good location. Rooms and hotel interiors are nicely decorated. Services are... More

Let me start by saying, this hotel is regal. The decor, furnishings, architecture ... takes my breath away. Cafe Villa Rosa is excellent. The wait staff are the best - friendly, courteous and always on hand to help, but not hovering about in that annoying way wait staff can get. Audrey Sambu, who took care of my dinner reservations, is... More
