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.

Stayed here for two days in December 2013 while on a business trip. In the current security climate in Nairobi, if your primary concern is safety, then this is THE place! Security is so tight, better than most embassies I have been to- tight security outside with armed guards, cameras and barricades before the entrance.The check in was seamless, but... More

I enjoyed it more for every day of my short stay. Efficient clean and no old soggy wall-to-wall carpets in the rooms. If you like the IKEA style you will like this hotel . The price was not Ikea ,a bit on the high side but that is maybe what Nairobi is. Good with internet access and fresh breakfast .... More

Single woman business traveller- this hotel has good security, is clean, showers have good pressure. Does not have AC whichever is generally ok for Nairobi.. Hair dryers at front desk. Good breakfast, central, fast enough internet. Not complaints, very functional. Restaurants next door good and handy after a long day at work.

This hotel is very new, with modern basic decoration and finishing. The hotel has main basic facilities, but no restaurant. The hotel is though connected to the next door Fairview hotel, where there are various restaurants. The bill of these restaurants can be charged to the hotel without any problem. They have WIFI, but it is not very stable. sometimes... More

Country Lodge set itself up as a 'business hotel'. However, I would say this is a great hotel, in a central location, for anyone who needs a base in Nairobi for a few days. The hotels are somewhat minimalist but with everything you need. Unlike many hotels in Nairobi the showers are excellent. The hotel does have a gym, and... More
