“Great apartments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

These apartments have everything. Kitchen, washing machine, deluxe bedroom, private wifi router, ample sitting room with cable TV. The staff is friendly and was great about directing us to the local supermarket. There are a few restaurants on the street, but otherwise the location is a little bit distant from the city center (thus a slightly lower rating here).

Staying here for 3 nights after out safari adventures. The apartmenti is huge and completely self contained. It is beautifully furnished and has excellent security within the apartment and the surrounding grounds. The washing machine was so handy for washing all of our dust covered safari gear. The food in the resturant is a bit ordinary but the apartment is equipped with all you need to cook or there are plenty of good resturants a short taxi ride away. Speaking of taxis, there is a resident taxi driver who will take you anywhere you need to go for a reasonable price. Ya ya shopping center is a short walk away. It is perfectly safe during the day but definately not at night. It is Nairobi after all.

We stayed one night at Meltonia before heading off for safari. The apartment was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. At dinner though, the drinks were not listed on the menu but we ordered two beers each to celebrate our first night in Africa. However, when the bill came we were charged about 10 dollars for each beer! (40 dollars in total) Later we found out this was quadruple the price of a bottle compared to other hotels! I guess it was our fault for not asking the price beforehand, we just naively assumed we'd be charged a fair price after reading good reviews about the hotel. Moral of the story - always ask the price before you order! Breakfast was also a bit chaotic as the staff didn't turn up for work in the morning but Peggy (the manager) arranged for a taxi to take us to a 24/7 cafe and paid for our meal. Overall, our stay was nice but the beers left a sour taste in our mouths...

We had recently enjoyed our vacation in Tanzania and Kenya, In Kenya we had spent 5 days in Meltonia Luxury Suites, I would like to share our views about the hotel.

Meltonia is a clean and nice place to stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The apartments are nice and well furnished. They are suitable for people on a short stay looking for clean, professional place.

This apartment hotel gives you a good value for your money.

Stayed here with my family (including my 1.5 year old twin daughters) as we had a one night transit in Nairobi. Stayed in two apartments facing each other. Peggy was really helpful during the initial phase and promptly responded to any queries I raised by email. We arrived around 7.30 pm in Nairobi and airport pick up was smooth and driver Ian was very helpful.

We booked two one bed room apartments opposite each other. The apartments were of decent size and had everything including cable TV and good speed Wi Fi. The beds were also really comfortable. The place has a small restaurant with one staff/chef and a limited menu from which you can order. We ordered room service and it took more than 1 hr for the food to arrive as he had many other orders prior to us. However because of the delay they waived the 200 khs room deliver charge.

We also had an early morning flight and ordered breakfast at 6.30 (room service) which was promptly delivered to the room (but of course the toast was burned and I couldn’t finish my coffee) and the driver was already waiting to take us to the airport. For the price they charge the place provides a real value for money especially given Nairobi hotel prices and gave us the much needed break/sleep after a looong flight from home.

I would happy to recommend this place to anyone and only wish they had 2 & 3 bedroom apartments/studios in addition to the one bed room ones as that would have been more convenient for us.

Staying in Meltonia Luxury Suites was one of the best part of our travel in Kenya. Meltonia is very well built, extremly clean, well maintained and has an excellent management, starting with Peggy, drivers, cleaners and security officers. Although being not a typical hotel, Meltonia is possibly one of the best places in Nairobi, since the hotel prices of the same quality are absolutely insane! It was beyond expectations how Peggy assisted most kindly to all customers, even late in the night or early in the morning. In my personal case, she even consulted her family to provide me with some information. Meltonia (Peggy) organised an excellent trip to the Nairobi National Park, and the driver Sam proved to be one of the best (kind and extremly knowledgeble) guides we have had during the entire trip in East Africa!

There is only one suggestion to improve the stay in Meltonia, but that is related to the behaviour of some of the turists/customers who should respect a bit more other customers of the Meltonia in particular during breakfasts. In this respect, I suggest to write/prepare a code of conduct for the visitors and request from the visitors to follow the rules. These cases are certainly rather rare, but need to be addressed.

I certainly recommend Meltonia, and wish to come again , hoping that Peggy will continue with her splendid management.

Room Tip: To our experiences, all the rooms are of the similar quality.

Other reviewers are correct, this is not an hotel. But they don't advertise as such, they are luxury suites and they certainly meet that description. Wonderfully equipped, spacious, clean and comfortable. With ridiculous hotel rates in and around Nairobi, Meltonia, epecially with the tripadvisor discount voucher, are extremely good value for money and offer so much more than the standard hotel room in town. The restaurant is not much to talk about but there are plenty of really good eateries nearby. tru it now, and take advantage of the voucher offer.
