“Like home from home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

I was surprised to see only 1 review for Mimosa Court hence this post.

I used to travel a lot to Nairobi on business between 2009 and 2011- so this post is dated but could be helpful to someone looking for cost effective accommodation on a long term basis.

Eventually the high cost of Nairobi's mainstay hotels became prohibitive and I needed an alternative when it became clear that I was going to need to stay there for a month or more at a time.

Mimosa Court had everything I was looking for. A big, fully furnished, spacious apartment that consisted of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, lounge and dining room that overlooked the beautiful garden and sparkling pool. The apartment is serviced daily and the security provided is of a high standard.

Tasty, "home" cooked meals can be had on the small verandah next to the pool at very reasonable prices at certain times of the day, If you would like to enjoy an alchoholic beverage with the meal you will need to provide this yourself.

Being an apartment you will need to provide everything yourself (towels are however provided). Everything you need can be bought at the local Nakumat and Uchumi stores that are situated around the corner in Ngong Rd, about a 5 minute drive (I dont recommend walking in the area especially at night) so hook up with one of the many friendly taxi drivers to take you around. If you are not familiar with Nairobi traffic, you definitely should not try driving around yourself.

During my stays at Mimosa I often went to restaurants for dinner to be in a more "busy" environment (Mimosa as a whole is a very quiet, tranquil place). My favourites were Osteria Del Chianti in Kilimani and Mediterraneo at the Junction shopping center. The time to drive to either of these restaurants is entirely dependent on traffic conditions which can be bad in Nairobi - so while it might take 10 or so minutes on some days, on other days it can take half an hour or more...

All in all I had a very comfortable stay at Mimosa Court and would happily recommend it.

I took a chance staying here lacking any reliable reviews. Turned out to be a good choice!

Mimosa is a combination of 1-3 bedroom apartments. It is quite secure with several security guards, K-9's in the evening and electrical separating it from nearby streets. Staff are friendly throughout, from housekeeping to fitness center staff, the Chef's and administrations. It is a cozy feel where you are bound to know your neighbors and other residents. Plenty of quiet, grassy areas around, along with a good size swimming pool, hot tub and sun bathing options. There is a small kitchen where a Chef can prepare a handful of eats from morning till evening, with prices reasonable.

Big Pros: The personal trainers at Mimosa are friendly, energetic and best of all, complimentary. The fitness center itself is small, but has a decent number of machines and free weights. Compared to other fitness centers around, it's actually not to shabby. The trainers add value for sure! Staff have been responsive to small problems (ie: mosquito net fell of its track, etc.)

Big Cons: The dogs. A private security company across from Mimosa houses their dogs in small kennels by day. The dogs bark on occasion. And when they bark, they all bark for 10-15 minutes at a time. This noise can be day or not, but probably effects certain units more than others. Be sure to inquire!

Billing for items from the kitchen is as you go. There is no direct billing to your final bill like in a folio. A nightmare for those of us who have to submit receipts for business purposes.

I also have a general feeling I missed some sort of welcome/introduction. Small annoyances such as a lack of TV stations that tune in, realization that paper-products (toilet tissue) and cleaning products are the guests responsibility would have been good to know on Day 1 (or even before arrival).

Finally, other than the small kitchen on site, the nearest selection of dining options is about a 5 minute cab ride at Pretige and/or Yaya Center, or 15-20 minutes walking (not recommended in the evening due to safety concerns).

Overall, i'm glad I chose to stay at Mimosa when I did. It's clean, cozy and fun. It's not everything, and it certainly has a few problems, but I imagine other similar residential communities like this have some as well.
