“If you're on a budget, stay at Ken's Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2009

Great place to stay if you're on a budget. The low cost makes it attractive in these difficult times!

The good:
+ Spacious - with kitchen, and big living room
+ Great ambience - inside
+ Airport pickup and dropp-off aranged for you on request
+ Great and Genuine Hospitality.
+ Cheap! $35-$40 per night. thats really cheap for Nairobi.
+ Clean and comfortable
+ Local guide will take care of all your needs and be your unofficial "body guard"
+ Discreet & tactful - none of the drama typical of Nairobi hotels
+ Perfect for business, travellers, backpackers, Globe-trotting clubbers, young unmarried couples,solo travellers and anyone on a budget.
+ Can make reservations via email (they say a website is coming - but I doubt it will be soon... just email them at kenadori@yahoo.com)

The negatives:
- average surroundings. No view. Place was not originally designed as a hotel. No landscaping.
- basic furnishing. Don't expect Intercontinental / hilton standards
- may not be great for family, or husband/wife (especially if prone to nagging)
