Country Lodge is a no-frills, great alternative to the overpriced hotels in Nairobi. The Country Lodge has a decent breakfast, a small but adequate fitness room, and large guest rooms. It is located right next to the Fairview, which has several restaurants to choose from. We ordered take-out from the Fairview many times and they delivered to he Country Lodge.... More

I'm not a real fan of modernism, but the Coutnry Lodge which is so styled, proved to be the exception ot the rule. The staff are extremely firendly, courteous, helpful and make you feel at home. The room while spartan is very, very comfortable and I slept easily my entire stay. Security is outstanding. Whilst it is tucked away, and... More

A minimalist value for money approach which in no way detracts from comfort of rooms for a short stay. Essentials are all available, including bottled water. Rooms are impeccably clean and service is warm, welcoming and efficient. Staff very helpful and obviously well trained. Wide range of choice at buffet breakfast with hot foods cooked to order. Neraby restaurants within... More

I should start by saying that my favorite place to stay in Nairobi is the higher-priced Fairview, next door to the Country Lodge. But having been booked here by my company, I was reasonably happy, if not thrilled, by the cheaper alternative. Country Lodge has a fairly good breakfast buffet with eggs to order (if you can get the attention... More

Thank you very much for you feedback and compliments. Our chef Jacinta may not smile much, but she runs a great kitchen! She is very organized and has the highest of hygiene standards. So while we would prefer her to smile more, we rank hygiene and kitchen management as a higher priority. We are working with her on "customer service"... More

We stayed in the hotel only one night, on the way to the masai mara, and another night before leaving nairobi to europe, but we could all the same appreciate the quietness, the charm and security of the place. Rooms are a bit small, and there was no room for a third bed for our son. The city center is... More

I'm very glad that I chose Country Lodge. It was a very nice, clean and comfortable hotel. The distance from downtown was a bit far, but it was easy to get a taxi. However, being that it wasn't downtown, it was quiet and I slept well each night. I was extremely happy with the staff. They were always willing the... More

I stayed at the County Lodge for a business trip in January. It was one of the nicest, cleanest hotels I have stayed in and such a great value. The staff were all so courteous and helpful. The next-door Fairview has excellent restaurants. I would certainly book my stay again here.

Exceptional value without compromising on comfort, safety, quietness and cleanliness. We stayed overnight prior to the start of our safari. Having arrived very late in the evening, we were glad to have booked the hotel driver prior to our arrival (approx. $40 US). Although he waited 8 hrs for us due to continuous flight delays, he was very pleasant, informative... More

I was attending a wedding a wedding in Nairobi and the bride blocked off a bunch of rooms for foreign guests at the Country Lodge. The hotel is fairly newly built with a contemporary lobby and standard-issue rooms. - Is it as nice as the Fairmont Norfolk? No, but you are paying half or 1/3rd the price. - Is it... More
