For the record, this one is between 4 & 5 stars. The reviews are true. Located behind the 5 star Fairview Hotel, the best perk of this hotel is its direct access to the Fairviews amenities, which include a pool and five fantastic restaurant set in a spread out tropical garden setting. The rooms are clean, modern and straightforward. Internet... More

This is my first post ever but this is how much I loved this The Country Lodge (soon to be the Town Lodge) and her staff. The facilities are more than just clean and fresh, they are serene. And the entire property (only a courtyard away is their sister hotel, The Fairview, which is equally amazing at a slightly higher... More

Located right next door to the Fairview, now with key card gate access directly into the garden. This adds value to the Country Lodge, because you have restaurant options and that wonderful garden and pool right there. The security is taken seriously, but is not limiting. Rooms are simple, no hairdryer in your room but there are a few available... More

This is a modern, safe and good value bed and breakfast hotel. The decore is sparse Ikea style. You get an efficent, clean hotel for your hotel. It is connected to the more upmarket hotel Fairview Hotel next door. It has five restaurants. I ate at the French Bistro which was excellent fine dining. It cost as much as my... More

I stayed in the Country Lodge for a total of six days in May 2014. First, it probably the safest hotel I have ever stayed in - security is good (its just up the street from the High Commission of the State of Israel), with keys needed to go in and out of the building and lots of security inside....

The Country Lodge is an affordable, simple hotel that's connected to the Fairview hotel. The rooms are modern and comfortable, although you can hear everything from the hallway. The breakfast was delicious and the staff were very helpful. Being connected to the Fairview hotel, you have a choice of a number of great restaurants within a 2 minute walk. The... More

My husband and I stayed at the Country Lodge for six nights. We highly recommend it for business travelers and vacationers who prefer a streamlined and modern hotel. Many Nairobi hotels tend to fall into one of two categories: 1) colonial décor or 2) rundown modernish (90s) décor. The Country Lodge is for people who do not feel the need... More

An alternative stay to the Fairview which owns this place. Advantage is that you have access to all the facilities at the Fairview. No lifts to take you up and hopefully there is a bell boy to help you with your luggage if you arrive late at night. Rooms are clean and comfortable but fairly spartan. No restaurants withing walking... More

Country Lodge (soon to be City Lodge apparently) is definitely a great place to be for business on Upper Hill. For the price you pay here you can't get anything similar anywhere else in Nairobi - and a lot worse. Yes, the rooms are furnished like a chain hotel, and yes they are not massive, but the beds are great,... More

This seems a good option for business travellers in Nairobi. It's not in a pretty district for tourists etc (but then I am not sure if Nairobi has any!), but could make a useful stop overnight before heading onto Safari etc. Decent wifi, good value and interesting variety of food on room service.
