We were hosted in this hotel prior and after doing a tour in Kenya and Tanzania, as Nairobi was the airport we were flying to and from. The hotel is located just next to the largest roundabout in Africa. So make sure you ask for a quiet room that doesn´t have window to the highway or you´ll listen the traffic!... More

Love this place. Clean, great staff, nice bar to watch sports and get food/drink. They were great about laundry service and I love the location. I paid about $50/night and thought it was a fair price.

I loved this hotel! I love old hotels and Kahama has some real old charm to it. I stayed here for two nights after a long bus journey from Uganda. I arrived late at night and was slightly ripped off by a taxi driver. Ask the hotel to recommend Peter for you if you need a driver. He dropped me... More

I stayed here with two friends and we had fun. The breakfast was great - fresh fruit and lots of other options. The hotel has the feel of being past its prime but we still really enjoyed it. The staff were helpful and the rooms were clean. The location isn't the best but Uber drivers can find you if you... More

The lobby, dining and breakfast room are small but cosy. Hotel is situated next to a busy and noisy road, but inside it is still silent. We had a triple room at the backside of the hotel.

A great little budget hotel. The hotel is not in the best part of town, nor is it safe to walk out at night in that area. However, the hotel is secure and has good security. It is situated on a roundabout so traffic noise can be a bit intrusive, hence I opted for a top floor room. Sadly this... More
