we were booked into this hotel by our volunteer services organization and at first we thought that we had been booked into something that was above their normal standards...but we realized that the value of Gracehouse is its staff. The room we had was very large, with an ensuite, TV and a unique mozzie net installation. In our case, breakfast and dinner were included and we found the menu to be typically african. After our 30 day stay there, we did get tired of the same choices, but the food was consistent, plentiful and good. One thing we did love was the 4pm afternoon tea and coffee available for guests free. We did not need air con, due to the wonderful highland climate of Nairobi.
The staff are the best asset this property has. Everyone from the porter to the chefs to the front staff, to the waiters etc wanted to work with a smile. The day we asked about swimming, we were sent just down the road to their other hotel and upon arrival, we were shown our chaise and towels all ready for a dip in the pool.....this is good value for money and the proximity of the ya ya shopping centre right next door makes it an ideal spot to use as a base while you explore the capital of Kenya.
Ask for a room in the back building to be away from the busy road out front...but all rooms are good...
