    We spent four nights in African House and it was excellent . A calm and very nice garden with a pool, cosy, clean and spacious room, nice decoration... Food in the restaurant was delicious. Stuff is very friendly and helpful. Location is good! Quiet place just 5 minutes from the beach! 🎈

    The nicest hotel I have ever done... From Malindi's cute little airport, we took a taxi to the hotel, which is quite close to the airport, and came to this fantastic little hotel where Mombasa expected us barefeeted in a traditionnel dress with a smile. You just enter, and you realise that the photos that you've seen from there don't... More

    This must be one of the most luxurious hotels in Malindi complemented by competent and friendly staff. The attention to detail is phenomenal. A must for anyone that wants to impress!! This hotel seems to be in demand so best to book early.

    Having been transferred here at the last minute from our original choice hotel, my wife and I spent a fantastic 4 days at African House. The staff were really friendly, and very helpful; especially when it came to arranging a tuk-tuk to town on Saturday night. had a wonderful stay, and will definitely return at the first opportunity.

    As described by other reviewers, this place is crammed with African antiques and curios. With only 5 large rooms, and very spacious public areas, it feels more like staying in a private villa. We were the only guests there in the second week of January, so obviously very quiet. Staff very helpful. Could be picky about some aspects of the... More

    Fantastic hidden retreat 10 mins outside of Malindi. Just 4 or 5 rooms so there is terrific privacy. The pool is lovely and atmosphere is very relaxed. There is wifi, but not in the rooms. The service was outstanding. Would highly recommend this hotel. There are a few areas that could be improved upon. It would be great if the... More
