“A Safe, Sensible Place to Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

The ACK Guesthouse is a safe and sensible place to stay in Nairobi. You don't need to stay in a fancy, overpriced hotel. ACK is a solid choice. It's not fancy, but the rooms are nice and comfortable, the breakfast is fine, service is good, and the location is excellent. It's located close to some of the very expensive hotels on "the safest street in Nairobi", according to several of my taxi drivers. The property is guarded and it's a short walk down the hill to the main area of Nairobi. The breakfast is a pretty good spread and was included in my rate. I had lunch and dinner there several times and although the food was a bit bland, there were plenty of choices and the price was reasonable.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

First visit here, I had been warned not to expect too much, However the staff were very friendly and efficient, the rooms perfectly adequate and self contained. I was in a sinlge room, and there are twins in adjacent blocks. The rooms are en-suite. There is a dining room and it is buffet service. Food was hot with a small choice.

This guest house is run by the Anglican Church of Kenya and is ideally suited as a base for Christian visitors to Nairobi - we stopped for one night to allow us to make an early morning transfer to the airport. Breakfast was provided for us at 5am. However it is not 'in your face' Christian in it's operation, so it should be suitable for most folk prepared to be considerate to other guests. It is an alcohol free area.

There is 24 hour security on the gate and we had a quiet nights sleep (unlike some previous stays in Nairobi!).

I'd definately stop here again for a stop over in Nairobi - it cost about 35 GBP incl. meal
