“Calm outside of Nairobi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

This place is certainly a nice, quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of central Nairobi but it's a fair distance outside the city so it would be difficult to call it a real Nairobi hotel. Quite small and intimate, the rooms are clean and cool with perhaps the most comfortable bed sheets I've ever slept under! The polished wooden floors are a little creaky but it's about the only noise you'll hear as the hotel is located in quite large grounds of tranquil greenery.

The restaurant is ok for a single night but stay any longer and you'll maybe crave somewhere else to dine and it is here that a problem arises. On a good night it will take 30-45 minutes to get into Nairobi proper thanks in part to the horrendous ongoing (Dec 2011) road works on the Thika Road.

Although listed as being on Thika Road, it's a couple of hundred metres off it and the signing is not great. Our taxi driver from the airport had some difficulty finding it so I'd suggest printing a map to help you get there.

LaMada is a sanctuary of serenity in the city it is like walking into a hidden sanctuary of country air natural beauty of natural springs, chapping birds with the elegance of five star hotel. Tastefully furnished, very comfortable rooms delicious meals and friendly staff.

Whether on business or on Holiday this is definitely the place to stay if your are looking for serenity within the city.
