Stayed in this hotel when I visited Nairobi for a marathon race. It is close to Nyayo stadium where the race starts and ends. The hotel is well kept, good services, good food and clean rooms. The outdoor area is rather small but well kept. Neighborhood is no so kind. I would not dare to walk outside during the night

I stayed at Mvuli with my friends whilst in Nairobi for a conference. It is a cute place to stay. It is clean, the staff are cultured well-mannered and pleasant. Food is good, and ambiance is great. Room rates are also reasonable. The only drawback I experienced was with my TV reception which was not very good. I hope that... More

For the love of this place I am back here again. Wi-fi working well. When I got here yesterday 06/04/2014 I reported about a leak in the bathroom which was wetting the floor. That leak has been sorted and I am sure I will enjoy the remaining 6 days here. The food is nice.

It's a very nice place.. Enjoyed their food and their hospitality.. Tho wi-fi signal is weak for rooms on the top floors. If I am in Nairobi again... I will look no further for accommodation as it is relatively close to JKIA as well as Nakumati Mega for shopping!!!

The rooms are small but other facilities are very good. The quality of staff is very high. The chefs were creative in preparing vegetarian food once the tips were given. The location is excellent. Facility for a safe morning walk due to the proximity to Nyayo Stadium.
