Since most flights into Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta Airport from Europe arrive in the evening, most vacationing travelers need to find a convenient, one night place to lay their weary heads before continuing on to Indian Ocean or game park resort destinations. Mvuli House, which bills itself as a "limited service economy hotel" has the feel of a B and B,... More

Thank you for staying with us and the positive review. We have noted your concern about Room 101. We're currently carrying out a phased renovation of the Hotel, and in the next couple of months, all our rooms will have double glazed windows to reduce the noise. Thank you once more. More

I reserved a twin and a triple room on hotel.info but, on arrival, the hotel said they had no details of the booking, for which I had a 'booking confirmation', and had no triple room available. They said hotel.info were not agents of theirs. After a very, very long struggle they agreed to give us a twin and a single... More

We were 6 friends who chose this location because it's near the necessary amenities that one would need when coming into Nairobi for a short business visit. The guest room is small and intimate but there is additional verandah seating that made it pleasant for an outdoor meeting session. The rooms were adequate in size though there are no frills....

Clean hotel with friendly staff. The food was satisfactory. Shared a twin room and room was big enough for the two of us. I didn't enjoy the hot shower as the flow was not consistent and at one point the water became cold. The lack of a conference room was my low mark for the hotel as we had to... More

I always stay at this hotel prior to travelling to UK or a break to Nairobi.. The rooms are spacious and kept very clean. The staff are always friendly and always willing to help. There is a restaurant that is open 24/7 with a good variety on the menu. The hotel is close to JKIA.
