“Extremely good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This hotel is ideal for travellers using the Riverside Shuttle service to and from Arusha, Tz.with the bus depot being located almost right outside the door. It is in downtown Nairobi and I'm quite sure that most other hotels in this vicinity are much more expensive. I booked a budget room but actually was given a standard one. It was very clean, comfortable, had a TV, good mosquito net bottled water and free wi-fi in the room (not too speedy, but ok - I was on the 5th floor). It felt very secure and the staff were helpful and welcoming. The only issue was the noise - from the street and from the corridor - a more upmarket establishment would have double glazing and other noise minimisers but for the price, I really do think it is good value.

My stay with friends and family at this hotel was excellent, the custome service was excellent. Everyone on site was ready and willing to help with almost anything like carry bags or assist with children. the restaurant ladies need to do better. they were very slow all the time I was there and you had to keep asking for food. If they asked for tea, you had to remind them they forgot milk or the cup. Not once but all the time I was there 6 nights I had to keep asking for something. last day I just left without my mandazi since I dint want bread. got tired of waiting and they did not like when I tried to serve myself. That is the area that let down the hotel you can do better.the cook mathias I think was his name was quick with orders ladies let him down.
The front office manager Fred was helpful even offered to buy me a city ticket for my car to avoid being towed. Dint work with martin but I saw him and as usual he asked if we needed help. innocent the guy cleaning the room was always handy when needed. the security lady and guys as well were very help ful I forget the names.
overall the hotel was comfortable and clean even with children. I sure will return again.

Room Tip: choose room opposite the road if you prefer a quiet night.

Clean, comfortable, very hospitable staff. Free wifi services are very unreliable in the rooms but excellent on the second floor (restaurant etc). Good budget option given the price range of other hotels in Nairobi.

Safety: This is not like a typical hotel. It just has a female security guard but they make up for the safety by having metal doors at every floor which only guests can access.

Rooms: Are dingy, no fan and no AC.

Beds are kinda just ok.

Many safari bookers use it for one night when they arrive in Nairobi and is a popular hotel among the safari tour operators, I would suggest to spend a little more and get a better place.

We stayed here while on vacation in kenya. At first we had some problems with our room and the manager on duty a Mr Martin acted quick to get problem solved. He stayed after his usual working hours and assisted ,my family with not only the room issue but also with my assisting locating my lost laggage. he even organized for transportation to collect my laggage at the airport the next day. Could not be happier with such personal care and attention. Am not sure how much he makes but he deserves a raise. he is polite and very helpful at all times.
As for the hotel the rooms are clean and there is hot water and internet which makes the stay comfortable. Basic amenities are provided and always a bottle of water was good to have on hand. thanks so muh i will return to stay her when i visit. its a budget friendly hotel.the restaurant was also very convinient and good food served. keep it up.

Room Tip: book in advance to avoid missing on a room especially during high season.

we have stayed twice at the Kenya comfort hotel now, once before and once after our safari, both times we had a good experience. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the shower has hot water, and the rooms were well stocked with basic amenities (soap, kleenex, water bottles, toilet paper etc). We had breakfast included and definitely worth it because there are several hot and cold options to choose from. The staff are friendly, and the wifi is slow but at least it works. I recommend this hotel as a stopover in Nairobi without breaking the bank.

This is an excellent low budget hotel located in the city center and convenient for all attractions. Rooms are comfortable, service is very good, food is typical Kenyan style. Don,t be put off by all the stories about Nairobi not being safe, the city center is quite safe at all hours. Of course there are areas you need to avoid, like all large cities all over the world. Always ask the price before you get into a taxi, however the drivers are very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Go for the executive, it is not expensive and worth the extra
