“Breathtaking Oasis away from the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

This was probably one of the most splendid hotels I have ever been too. It truly is palatial!!!
The hotel is magnificent, just breathtaking to look at, the suites are gorgeous, clean and massive you feel like royalty. The food is also sublime; our breakfast was just exquisite, well cooked and a fantastic selection. The service was also very good; the hotel staff were attentive and eager to please. There is nothing i can say that will do it justice, for the price you pay, you get an amazing experience, and the experience felt like I was living in my very own palace. Extremely serene, the ambiance is perfect and situated in gorgeous grounds. A must is having breakfast outside on the balcony and taking in the view.

There is very little you can fault Sovereign Suites with, for me it is the only place I would stay in Nairobi, but the only negative thing is that it is far from the city centre. About a 30- 40 minute drive by taxi, and for anyone who has stayed in Nairobi you will find for a tourist, taxis do not come cheap. It is also difficult for taxi's to find the place, as it is situated on a very long road which caused a lot of confusion for the drivers. Feedback I would give to the hotel is to try and get the destination more referenced to local taxis.

Other than this- absolutely fantastic, please don’t hesitate to book this hotel it truly is gorgeous and honestly worth what you pay.

The hotel provides a serene environment for a business trip! The suites are cleaned on a daily basis with fresh towels starched meticulously. The artistry in the hotel, no words can describe it. The rooms are warm and are equipped with everything one can require. The food is amazing! Never had any discomfort. Thanks. Will definitely come back!

Room Tip: Corner Suites are large

The hotel provides serene location, near Nairobi but away from the hustle and bustle that is excellent for seminars, workshops and business meetings.

The rooms, food, hospitality and ambience is excellent.

Room Tip: All rooms were spacious but some have additional facilities

This place is no less than palatial! The artistry is incredible, from the handcarved doors to the exquisite room appointments. It's worth every minute of the very long and slightly confusing drive (Limaru Rd but tell your drive a few km past St. Paul University). I would come back again and stay for weeks!

We were allocated this hotel as a stop over between flying to Nairobi and heading out on safari. It could not have been more perfect. Absolute luxury with full spa bathrooms in every room, huge suites with very comfortable beds and good bed linen meaning we all had a great nights sleep following a night of travelling and were refreshed again for a week of safari.This hotel is also set outside of town which for us was another benefit. A short trip in got us to Carnivores for lunch and then the giraffe sanctuary but after we came away from the noise and dust, congestion and smoke for a refreshing over-nighter. The food was exceptional but take time to read the descriptions of the dishes rather than assume from the titles - this is not a criticism it was beautiful food. Finally and most importantly, the staff were exceptionally attentive and you really did feel like you were their sole concern.

Room Tip: We had three rooms, one ground floor and two first floor, all were stunning. The whole hotel is ser...

Awesomenessssssssssss....... It is a beautiful, Serene, Colonial masterpiece all Suite Hotel.... Each and every time you feel that all the staff working there are there only for you....so personalized, So luxurious and exceeding all expectationssss.

Bravo Rahul Sood (Group MD - Sun Africa Resorts) for managing this masterpiece, hidden treasure.

Grand piano, Wooden Colonial Stair cases, Marble fountains both inside and outside resort...Hotel Manager Linda is a thorough professional person and will make sure all your demands are met even before you utter out the full list.

It is a drive away from the city centre and the weather is to die for....

Menu is awesome and the Beef Curry and Thai Mango Salad were my favorite in my 3 stays of 3 days each in the same holiday period.

Suites are massive, luxurious and superb, no words can do much justice to the place...

Once in Nairobi, Sovereign Suites is a must must, if you cannot stay there for any reason, please visit at-least for an awesome lunch or dinner, mark our words, you will love it...

Walking distance in the resort itself, there is massive tea plantation, a lake for fishing and boating....

Awesome service, awesome staff and a must visit place...

We both enjoyed a lot .....

Love and Prayers

Rohit and Sandra Beri

Room Tip: 301 is the best suite....

Two great stays inside a week and both well near perfect once again.
Food, including breakfast - served a la carte - exceeded my expectations
and while the Egg Benedict was, well, more of an Egg Sovereign, the chef
agreed to rename it, all the food was mouth watering. Internet worked,
and fast, everything in my suite was in ship shape and the tea served
in the room came with a major order of muffins, on the house that was.
The tray of sweets was utterly tempting but mindful of my waistline I withstood
temptation, until that peckish feeling at night threw all good intentions out
of the window and then I wished there had been more than the six on the tray.
The hotel has a wide selection of teas available for guests to chose from and
the Kenya Marula met exactly my specs for a refreshing pot of tea, freshly
brewed of course.
If I have one fault with the kitchen it is the size of their portions, too large in
fact, and overeating comes easily here with death by chocolate mousse
a real possibility.
Excellent attention throughout the stay and in fact a perfect place to
stay for the first or last night on a safari circuit, outside the hustle and bustle
of the city itself. The nearby Limuru Golf Club invites for a round of afternoon
golf to walk the stiffness out of the bones after a long flight, not that I needed
that as I came from the city, escaping for a few days. Comes highly recommended,
once again I should add as this is my third review over the past two years and
it only got better.

Room Tip: All the rooms are in fact suites but some are bigger and better than others ... invest in a presiden...
