“Serenity in Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I recently stayed at Woodmere Apartments while on a 2 week assignment in Nairobi, and fell in love with the place. After spending a day working in the chaos of Nairobi, it was wonderful to come back to the beautiful and peaceful setting of Woodmere. It's like a small oasis of serenity -- and it's located in one of the most convenient spots in the city.

I felt as though everyone was happy to have us there as a guest - which was no surprise, because the owners, Paul and Grace, also welcomed us with smiles every time we saw them. Their hospitality and graciousness is contagious, and it can be felt throughout their entire staff.

There is a pool, hot tub, and sauna, which looked inviting, though we didn't have time to use them -- and the apartments themselves are well appointed and had everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable.

We are heading back to Nairobi for a 4 month stay, and are already in the process of booking at Woodmere.

The 2 Bedroom apartment we got was nice and next to the pool which was great for the kids. The rustic deco is simple but nice and we were glad to find that the kitchen was well equipped. I think we will visit again

We spent 3 weeks in this serviced apartment and we liked is. It is not too far from the city centre of Nairobi and we enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. That is a big advantage if you consider how noisy Nairobi can be. It is like living in a park with many different plants and trees. The rooms are spacious and furnished with taste. The kitchen is adequately equipped. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only complaint is the poor Internet access.
Next time we are in Nairobi we will choose Woodmere again

I have stayed frequently at Woodmere over the last 10 years. I keep coming back because its gives a quite and comfortable stay in nicely furnished apartments, with great interior design an outdoor atmosphere. Great staff, friendly and helpful at all times. Good location, close to town. Tire of staying in hotels? This place makes you feel staying at home, whele being away! When the gym is refurbished, and the internet access is upgraded, the score will get to the top.

Room Tip: The C block is on the sunny side.

I have stayed at Woodmere several times since April 2011 when I am in Nairobi. The location is very peaceful and calming and great for relaxing at the end of the day or over the weekend. The staff are very helpful and problems with the equipment get resolved quickly. Most importantly, I am able to get a good night's sleep, which is not the case in all other hotels.

Room Tip: The rooms which have been refurbished make a better use of the space.

I stayed at Woodmere Apartments for 3 years from 1996 to 1999 and absolutely liked the place. Beautiful furnished apartments with fireplace, decorated with taste, excellent services and friendly staff. Very green environment. I always stay at Woodmere since each time I travel back to Nairobi for business or leasure.

We always stay at Woodmere when we travelled to Nairobi, the good thing is that there is always a taxi available, the staff is very nice. The appartments are clean. One suggestion is that the kitchen should be a bit upgraded,as the cuttlery, dishes are not enough. Another suggestion is to have a welcoming tray with coffee,tea, sugar, milk and water , specially for people arriving late at night and needs to drink something.Oterwise I love Woodmere.

Room Tip: I would say to chosse rooms which are faced to the pool but not the the rooms called units Personnel...
