A German or Dutch style of hotel with clean lines, plenty of light and open plan areas does not fit in with the other hotels in Nairobi, but what a refreshing change it is. It has many German customers and really deserves to be highly recommended. The room rates are very reasonable (around $100 per night including all taxes, internet access and breakfast). The rooms are very clean and modern with tea and coffee facilities which are not normally provided in this mid-range line of hotels. Perfectly suitable and very very safe. Staff very friendly and helpful, with professional booking, check-in and check-out. I felt as if I was in a hotel in Europe and not Nairobi. Quality and style you can rely on and feel comfortable with.
It has a small modern gym, mini business centre, vending machines with snacks and ironing room.
The only downsize is that it doesn’t have a restaurant onsite and has no lifts, so be prepared to march up and down the stairs. Having said that it is located in the most peaceful area of Nairobi (and yet almost right in the city centre) and you can have a good night sleep in this oasis of peace. The beds are very comfy and the duvets are nice and warm (I visited in the wintertime so a normal duvet wouldn’t have been sufficient). The rooms look out to a lovely garden, and have a modern and light decor.
It sits wall to wall to the Fairview hotel, only 2 minutes away along the same tree lined path, its sister hotel which is a lovely hotel with fantastic facilities, including 5 , restaurants, travel office, souvenir shop and a pool, which you can use as a guest of the Country Lodge.
There are well priced taxis available just outside. The hotel is located on “the safest street in Nairobi” and is very secure, including the surrounding areas; this could be due to the fact that Israeli Embassy is located opposite the hotel. You can safely walk between Country Lodge and Fairview- where you can have your dinner, buy your postcards and book a safari- even at night as the roads are guarded and monitored by CCTV.
