“Quite Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I like Ole Dume, it's our go to place for short stays in Nairobi, friendly staff, nice pool area, clean, spacious, quiet, secure, very relaxed atmosphere. Good value for money, it's also very close to several shopping centre's. Would be nice if they had an elevator but it doesn't seem to be a priority for most apartments in Nairobi, but generally a place would recommend.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

I am for a 6 months assignment in Nairobi and stay at Ole Dume Serviced Appartments. I selected it because of the very good gym, the fairly nice pool and the light and airy appartment. I have a 2 bedroom one. The bathroom is quite large with a bathtub and separate shower. The toilet is separate. 7 times a week housekeeping. They also do the dishes. Wifi is a bit unstable, but good enough to survive. The offer on DSTV is a bit limited.The staff is very friendly and helpfull. There is also a small restaurant with al fresco dining and that also serves at the pool.
I feel very at home here.

Accommodation options in Nairobi generally fall in two camps: the really expensive and the cheap and nasty.

Ole Dume isn't that expensive, especially if you negotiate a deal for a stay of a few days or more. You can knock it down to around 50 to 75 dollars per night depending on your length of stay. We stayed here for four weeks and got a cracking deal. It's got great rooms (but avoid the ones on the top floor at all cost) which are large, light and very clean.

Our one bed apartment had a kitchen, living room, balcony, bedroom and bathroom. I think they have two and three bedders too. There was a TV and wifi (generally ok for email but not the best). There's a pool and a decent onsite restaurant which does a good veg curry. They'll do room service too.

Probably the best thing is the staff who are always very helpful. I was selling a car at the time and they didn't mind the people coming and going to look at the vehicle.

Decent location too.
