a lot of mold in the rooms, especially in the bathroom. We (group of 8) ordered dinner in the restaurant downstairs and waited almost 1.5 hours for dishes. The hotel well located on the way from airport

The dining is also quit small. Cant sit a large group but the advantage is that it has an outside dining area. The service and food was also average. Incase... More

This is fairly good accommodation in Nairobi. The rooms are clea and fairly well serviced. No frills yes but it is very habitable and fairly priced. Not disability friendly however as there are no lifts. Quite limited choices for breakfast although the other meals are fairly good. Ten minutes to the Nakumatt Mega Store is a plus. Will certainly consider... More

We stayed in the hotel to organise a workshop. The staff of the hotel was very friendly in helping us making the workshop a succes.

Mvuli is a value for money hotel. Centrally located and reasonably priced. The reception staff (Maureen, Catherine, Lucy, et al) were friendly and helpful. It has an excellent restaurant and good breakfast. However, the rooms were small, there was no AC and there are no lifts. Also, the area seemed dodgy. Overall a good value for money hotel.

Nice hotel in the CBD area. Very close to the airport. Staff are friendly, helpful, n positive. Morning food service staff, very lazy and slow. Overall check in and rest of the staff make up for it. Good security and very convinient for overnite stays.
