I spent over a week at the Tara Suites attending business meetings in the UN Crescent. I found the rooms affordable, clean and spacious with all the amenities, the staff accommodating and friendly, and the hotel overall a quiet homey place to stay as an alternative to the larger hotels ion the area such as the Tribe. The two missing pieces for me were a swimming pool and fitness center. However, the receptionist ensured me that the hotel had plans to restore both of these within the year. Once these are completed I would rate the Tara Suites as one of the best valued secrets in Gigiri, Nairobi. I would also recommend that Tara Suites add a few more carpets to the floors to muffle hallway noise in the atrium.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

Tara Suites is not a franchise, but rather your home away from home where you can feel safe and connected. It's a property of boutique suites set in a captivating oasis on United Nations Crescent, Gigiri. In a deciduous vegetated garden amongst a sanctuary of beautiful East African birds you will forget that you are within walking distance from the United Nations and conveniently close to cafes, restaurants, and modern shopping facilities.
