The rooms are ok. However, TVs mainly not working, delay and or casual approach to customer concerns. I was changed two times and every time there was an issue and non was being resolved. some sections have no wifi and telelphone network can be a problem. directions to rooms can be a problem.

OK for a very short business stay, but not much to offer other travelers. Rooms are the bare bones, not very neat, horrid, basic coffee an no international TV channels or a radio, so all in all a pretty bleak place. Food are average African fare and service pretty standard - a very forgettable stay.

When you arrive at the lodge it's beautiful and all green and quiet. Which is a promise of calm and peace from the traffic and nosie from the busy Nairobi City. All this promise is taken away once you settle at the hotel, we had three nights at the hotel and the first night they served us well with smiles... More

Maanzoni Lodge is a nice place to be. The lodge is accessible by road from both Nairobi CBD, Machakos and Mombasa towns. It has a cool scenic view and the area has fresh air. calm and Lovely place to be.

Great conferencing facilities, with spacious conference rooms, good food. We were there for a three day conference provided with good sound, timely snacks and breaks, great food with a wide buffet selection. Stationary was also provided for all the participants. overall good place for conferencing and work related activities, team building.

Got diarhea because of the food: I used the salad bar. Though the lodge is told to be only 4 yrs old the room was already pretty run down. First we thought we go a nice offer for a stay. Kes 12000 per night half-board for two single rooms for 5 nights, thus kes 6000 per night. Our 4 year... More

I stayed at Maanzoni on business for a week and would certainly recommend it. The rooms are quite basic but clean with comfy beds, hot showers and wi-fi that was very reliable throughout the hotel. The food was fine. There are two things that really stood out for me about Maanzoni. Firstly, it is a beautiful place. The grounds are... More
