My experience of mid and low priced bed and breakfasts here in Nairobi have been disappointing due to neglected decor or broken items within the rooms. This lovely mid priced bed and breakfast pleasantly surprised me. Clean, well kept, excellent taste decor and lovely helpful staff. I had a single en suite which, although small, was plenty big enough. All electric so let's working and in good order. Bathroom and bed were clean and fresh. Their courtyard is amazing and welcoming. They even have a little cafe/pizzeria which had tasty items for a really good price.
The only downside for me (and I have told the manager so it can improve) was that the wifi was slow in the room (not in the cafe area) and that there was no decaf coffee at breakfast even though it was on the menu as an option. The management took this on board without fuss and thanked me for the input which I thought was a good sign.
Parking is secure but tight. Just be aware of this when you arrive. Don't let it spoil an otherwise pleasant stay.
Anyone visiting Hurlingham area of Nairobi, this is a good place to stay.
