What a great discovery! After a busy stay in Mombasa, this place is a perfect base for exploring Nairobi - right from the heart of Karen. The giraffe centre, elephant sanctuary, shopping & Karen Blixen's house are all within 10 minutes of Margarita House. The garden is nice have lunch in, the pool great for a splash or a place...

This is a secluded boutique hotel on a quiet road not too far from Karen Road shopping (about 10 min drive) but a world away from the centre of Nairobi. The location is very private, quiet and secure - perfect for a break away from the city. The hotel has lovely, well-kept grounds with shaded and open seating areas and...

I surely needed my compass to get to Margarita House, you could blame my sense of direction, but am certain if I had my compass, I wouldn't have gotten lost twice.
