“Luxury in Karen , Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2008

A Wonderful Hotel in Karen some 15 minutes drive from Jomo Kenyatta Airport.
The hotel is colonial style.
We stayed in the Saraha Room , it was large comfortable and the beds so inviting after a long flight.
The food was top class as were all the staff we encountered. A very warm welcome.The gardens and swimming pool were beautiful.
This is an ideal luxury stopover we used to recover from our long flight before our safari and again on the return leg.
In an ideal spot for a visit to The Giraffe Reserve and Elephant Orphanage.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2008

House of Waine is in a beautiful location, with a pristine pool and gardens, an oasis for relaxing after a long flight or safari. You couldn't ask for a more pleasant, hospitable staff, who did everything they could to make our stay pleasant. At the beginning of our trip, we stayed in the Safari room, before setting out on our journey, and on returning they had us in the Manyatta room (manyatta is Maasai for 'home') - a thoughtful touch.
Rooms are impeccable and individually styled, but all have every convenience. Restaurant is first class, with delicious food.
We stayed just after the recent unrest, so business was quiet, and we sincerely hope things will pick up as tourists return to this fabulous country. I hope to return before too long.

  • Liked — Attractive, peaceful, great service, and authentic upscale African decor throughout
  • Disliked — Electricity occasionally gave out (not their fault, no doubt)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2008

Perfect all around: food, rooms, service, etc. Very well maintained property, close to Wilson airport, Nairobi park etc. Easy to get to International airport, avoiding the City centre. Very safe area (Karen) and well guarded. Free internet in the room.
