“Casa Bella”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Excellent, simple and peaceful. Out of town (a genuine bonus) with good security and friendly, helpful staff. Very relaxed attitude and casual - just what was needed after stuffy and formal meetings. Indy (mein host) is a man of great quality: engaging, funny, ludicrously helpful and nothing, nothing, nothing is too much trouble. Need a taxi to Lake Naivasha? Indy has a few tame taxi drivers and will get you the best possible price (saved me 50%). Fancy a night out? He will send you to the best spots (like Electric Avenue ... blimey) or a decent restaurant.
He is just finishing construction of a small gym and this will augment the simple facilities. Thoroughly recommended for business, especially to the UN, and as a base for business or visits to Nairobi but it would be best as a stopover for families as there is little to do for kids. I would recommend you fly in to the airport, rest here for a day or two then head off for your adventure in Naivasha etc then rest up here again before you fly home.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool - if you have toddlers then get one on the ground floor!

This was my second time in Casa Bella. Initially I had my stay booked at a different place. But having had an excellent stay and experienced an outstanding hospitality in Casa Bella during my previous stay in Nairobi in March, I could not help but go back to Casa Bella after a few days spent at the "other place". I just think that whatever I write will not do justice to Indy's (owner) hospitality. To me, Casa Bella is not "a hotel", rather it is family. It is my Home in Kenya.
Keep it up Indy. and many thanks!

Great accommodation - clean, spacious and very, very comfortable. Wonderful hospitality extended by Indy and his entire family... even the little ones! Attentive care from all the staff. All this AND the little touches like the mobile 'phone and SIM card, arranging transport and offering lifts and the soya milk pushed this from a very good experience to a great one.

I stayed here for a week as I was on a work trip. If you are coming to Nairobi on UN work, the house is not walking distance from the compound, but Indy, the host, arranges transportation for you.

This is a very, very beautiful house with a home-like feel to it. All rooms are extremely tastefully furnished and the silence and tranquility is priceless.

The hosts are extremely hospitable, it feels good to come back there after a long day of work or just touring around the city.

100% recommended.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the beautiful turquoise pool. You have a very nice balcony and a priceless view...

The Casa Bella is situated in a very quite surrounding. The hospitality is worth to be mentioned. The owner and his wife take care of you from early in the morning till late in the evening. Transport to city and the airport is no problem for them. Just a call and the taxi is waiting at the front door.
And if you are hungry in the evening and you do not like to go out anymore, Indy's wife is a very good cook.

A very comfortably stay with great hospitality. The Case Bella Suites were very clean and comfortable, and the proprietor Indy was most hospitable. Some people working in the tourism business go on courses to learn hospitality, but Indy and his wife are naturals. Having travelled a lot and worked in the tourism business myself for a while, my stay at the Case Bella was probably one of my best accommodation experiences. The secret - genuine hospitality coupled with good facilities. I would have no hesitation in booking the Casa Bella again and would relish the opportunity to share a drink and meal with Indy and his family again.

We booked Casa Bella after reading the reviews on trip advisor. All the reviews were accurate and from my very first contact with Indy the owner & host, to the moment we left, all our needs were taken care of. Airport transport was arranged and a safe local taxi cab company was used for local transport as necessary. A mobile phone and internet access was made available at no extra cost !!!. Casa Bella is a very comfortable, secure, peaceful and well located place made better by Indy's personal touch from start to finish. We will definately use it again in the future and recommend it to all our friends and family... Excellent value for money...!

Room Tip: Your stay will be a great one irrespective of which room you choose...
