“I would be happy to stay here again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This place is a short drive from where to post bus stops, and within walking distance to downtown. I arrived late at night and one of the staff helped me get food at nearby restaurant. I stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed the helpfulness of the staff, as well as the amazing breakfast that came with Cadbury hot chocolate. The hotel is in great condition. We arranged a day trip to the Kazuri bead factory, giraffe breeding center, and the elephant orphanage through the hotel, and their taxi driver Charles was fantastic to work with. I stayed at one of their deluxe rooms in the front of the building and the street traffic was really loud. I slept with earplugs, but the noise disturbed me whenever I was in the room. The rooms further into the hotel were a little smaller but just as nice. It's hard to imagine a better place for the price.

In comparison with other places within the price range, i recommend this b&b. rooms are clean, with bathrooms and warm water 24/7 which is not that obvious in Nairobi. You can easily walk to the city centre (i did). Breakfast was good, staff will order you a taxi at a fixed price, give a photocopy of nairobi map and so on. just ask.

The hotel had great decor, comfortable beds, local art displayed, 24 hr service, friendly and helpful staff, good food. The roof top was superb! The place has character you don't find in similar priced hotels.

Room Tip: stayed 2x and in different rooms. They both had their unique qualities.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

The Khweza is a very positive surprise in the otherwise quite difficult and often disappointing hotel market of Nairobi. The rooms are big and clean, the staff is very friendly and the shower has the hot water that is promised. And yes, there are mosquito nets, without holes.

The area of Ngara is a 15 minute walking distance from town, matatus run shuttle to town some 3 minutes away from the hotel. A taxi to town should cost some 400 KSh. The area is perhaps not the charmiest around, but safe during day time for anyone. Just look like you know where you're heading and you won't be bothered! Although the street outside (Ngara Road) is one of the more restless ones at night, safety at the Khweza is good.

Minus points for noisiness: the windows are non-isolated and both traffic and other noises during the night will request the light sleeper to bring a pair of earplugs.

To sum it up, the Khweza is definitely the best value for the money I've had in Nairobi, out of the five hotels I've tried out in the budget/medium category throughout the last two years. Big bonus for the nice roof top terrace.

We spent a single night in small room in dubious neighborhood of Nairobi surrounded by welcoming and helpful staff. The top-notch breakfast was surely the highlight of the stay. Recommeded if you just need a to crash...

I stayed at khweza in June this year and absolutely loved my experience there. The staff are wonderful; so friendly and accommodating, particularly Jumah, my guide he was fantastic. I'm not quite sure why people are commenting on its location, sure it's not the prettiest part of town but I enjoyed the 'realness' of it..if immersing yourself in the real culture of Kenya isn't what you're looking for then maybe Nairobi isn't really a destination for you, or maybe stay at the hilton and dont leave the hotel. :-)
Not once did I feel unsafe here, and I'm a female who traveled alone - and arrived in the evening... The roof top bar is lovely. the wifi is great, the food is very decent, breakfast is included which was great..

Khweza b&b comes highly recommended by me. Asante sana khweza! hope to visit again soon!
