I have stayed at The King's Post many times in the past. I always choose the studio apartment because they are quite spacious and have great décor. The property has added many new improvements that makes it even more delightful. The outdoor terrace and new restaurant and chef are fantastic. I think what really sets The King's Post apart from...

King's Post is beautifully decorated in the Swahili Coast stylings of Lamu and Zanzibar. Traditional beds, colorful lanterns, vast rugs, and sophisticated cushions make this a very comfortable and fun place to stay. This place is ideal for those needing more than 3-4 nights as it comes with a kitchen including full refrigerator, stove, hot water heater, and more. Easy... More

I very much liked the Swahili Style of the compound and the laid-back feeling. The appartments are very clean and the equipment/furniture is well maintained and of good quality. Staff is really friendly. I especially enjoyed the in-house café bar and restaurant.

I went to Kenya on assignment for 3 month with my family. My husband and 2 daughters came with me and I could not have asked for a better place to stay during this time.

The staff is amazing, the service is perfect, and the facilities are beautiful. I've lived at other apartment complexes in Nairobi, and nothing compares to the friendliness, warm feel, and overall value of the King Post. Gym, spa, restaurant - all terrific - and the staff is so incredibly welcoming and helpful. I feel like a queen every time I... More

We were looking to stay for a long period in Nairobi on work. One of my team mates chose this place. Initially, the place looked deliberately out of place from the rest of the surroundings. So we were not sure what to expect. But this place has repeatedly exceeded my expectations. Well designed, brilliant service, Pardeep and Tanvi have not... More

The King Post is not the typical compound accommodation you can expect in a place like Nairobi. Very conveniently located in Rhapta Road, close to the action, business and social but yet quiet and tranquil, is built in such a way that you can experience a first class accommodation standards. There is a swimming pool (currently under rennovation), fantastic gym... More

I'm used to come to King Post but they deserve to be well appraised. The hotel is very well located, it is a safe and quiet place. The gym is on the top with a large aerobic room. Just a little complain on the comfort of the beds (really too hard for me) and the relative obscure flat with the... More

We recruit had our photo shoot here and were very impressed by the quality of decor and that most of the heavy high beds and sofas were made in house. The poolside was gorgeous and there was ample parking. Security was top notch, and we felt truly like we stepped into another world just 10 minutes away from the busy... More
