Pre checkin: I missed my connection from BKK and flew out the next night, but hadn't been able to get my tablet or phone to work to contact the hotel to change my checkin date. I managed to email before boarding and then rang them from NBO airport. They had my email and had already changed my booking for me...

Kahama is a lovely clean Kenyan run hotel in the center of Nairobi. I travelled to Kenya on my own and spent four nights there. The room is so stylish and clean for the price.

Stayed here with family late April 2015. My wife and I were inspired by Kahama Mombasa to try out Kahama Nairobi. Receptionists are warm and welcoming and overall service is good.

Our superior double room was beautifully decorated and a great value at $60 per night. The breakfast buffet was excellent and varied. Service was great throughout the trip. The location was convenient to downtown and Westlands (we used taxis so the highway was not a big issue). It felt very safe and comfortable.

I last stayed at Kahama about 2 years ago. Before, it used to be my favourite place whenever I was in Nairobi but I had moved to a new location due to the Thika highway construction works which made the place rather noisy and not too sightly. However, when standards of cleanliness and staff customer relations began to go down...
