“Comfortable lodgings with a magnificent garden view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I recently stayed at Westhouse in Nairobi on business trip. It was very welcoming and comfortable. It has some unique design features that add to the quality of the stay but the service could be improved.

The garden view is truly spectacular and well worth seeing. This makes breakfast and dinner rather captivating.

Stayed July 2014, traveled on business

Thank you very much for your review. The view of Karura forest surely is a sight to behold! If you are lucky you might even spot a few monkeys, antelopes as well as over 200 species of birds.. Hope you can stay with us again soon.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Excellent place to stay in Nairobi. Cozy rooms and just the right size. The bathroom amenities need some work. They should place more things in the bathroom for guests. The service is a bit slow and staff can be more attentive. The shower in a few rooms lacked water pressure which made it not such a pleasant bathing experience. This was true of 3 rooms. Not sure if all faced that. But overall a good place and worth checking out, I hope they improve on these few pointers then it would get a 5 rating!

Room Tip: Facing the forest is ideal!

This hotel is in a quiet location with a rear garden backing on to the Gigiri forest. Trendy modern décor and well appointed rooms.The facilities are good with all you might expect and the staff are friendly and helpful. Offers reasonable value for money for Nairobi.
