“It's really a home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2009

I had to stay in Nairobi for business for long periods (3 - 6 months) between 2001 to 2006. Serviced apartments were the best solution for me. I don't think there is any other serviced apartment in the city that gives one so much of a home feeling. It all starts with the management, professional and very warm at the same time. They really helped me find my way in this new city the first time there. I felt safe and taken care of. The Gables is an oasis of peace in this city. The drawback is that one feels space has been super-optimized a bit. Common garden areas are small, living room too and the swimming pool is more a decorative pond than a real swimming pool. In any case, for a worry-free stay in Nairobi this is definitely the place to come.
