I stayed with my family at Margarita House and found it a clean comfortable secure base, away from the hustle and bustle of central Nairobi.
Being a relatively small hotel (18 rooms) there is an intimacy that you wouldn't find at a larger establishment.
The staff are helpful and familiar with all the local tourist attractions (Blixen Museum, Giraffe Centre etc...)
The food available is adequate if limited, but more to the point none of my family suffered as a result of it.
The location of Margarita House (through 3 sets of gates - all manned, and one 10,000v electric fence) reflects the fact that security here is important. At no time here did we feel at all vulnerable - quite the opposite.
Karen is an upmarket suburb of Nairobi within relatively easy reach of the airport.
I have no hesitation in recommending Margarita House as an excellent choice of place to stay.
