Located in a gated neighborhood and a gated compound, saftey is not a concern. I was greeted by a lady who was very nice. My room was large, 2 double beds, with a private bath that was actually an enclosed porch but the room and bath were clean. I arrived about 6 PM and it was like an oven in... More

The Nairobi stopover hotel is a place close to the international airport where your tip can start or end. The booking went well, email response took place within a day. They already booked my bustrip to Moshi in Tanzania! When I arrived, the lady of the house was very friendly. The room I got in the back was clean, with... More

For our last night in Kenya and an early flight the next morning back to Amsterdam we needed a save place to stay without any ambition to visit Nairobi this time. This hostel / guesthouse is a fit for purpose choice to do this. Friendly and helpful staff (escort to Capital Mall, 10 min walk max., airport pick-up and drop-off)... More

As described previously, the rooms here are nothing spectacular but have good mosquito nets and are clean. However it is the safety and helpfulness of the staff which mean it gets a 5 star rating. I would definitely stay here again and it is particularly good if you are doing multiple trips and using Nairobi as your base. The stop... More

I used this place for like 6 hours and I must say the Stop Over House is a much better place for anyone transiting through Nairobi than any other joint in the hood. The staffs are amazing and very friendly. Makes you feel very much welcomed. And the environment is much better hygienically than one other place I visited.. Overall... More

We were on a budget, we stayed 1 night in Dorms, it is a room of 6. The beds were very comfy with good mosquito nets. Great location, 10min drive to the airport and a short bus drive to Nairobi Center, very close shopping mall and restaurants (inc a very good African one - ask staff). Hot showers. The staff...

We stayed here for one night at first, having flown into Nairobi, before taking the bus to Moshi the next day to climb Kilimanjaro. The staff were very kind and helpful. Zipporah was in very regular contact and we were collected from the airport promptly and had help boarding the bus to Moshi from just outside the hotel. The hotel... More

I slept one night in this place. Although the staff was very friendly and kind I will never go back. We could not sleep because of the traffic on the highway Mombasa/Nairobi. This road is only a few meters from the hotel. The place really could use some paint. In the neighbourhood is nothing to do except a shopping mall... More

I stayed here 1 night with 2 others. My overall comment is that it was very cheap and safe, and ok if you're just passing through. We had a twin room in the main building and one friend stayed in an annex at the rear if the building, with its own bathroom, which i didn't see. The toilet in the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a mid range Bed and breakfast guest house located very near the Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta airport and Wilson airport. We are less than 10minutes from any of the airport. Our guest house guarantees personal attention for it is small with a capacity of 20 guests per night. Our 5 bedrooms are either in single, double, triple and we have a family room with 1 big bed and 2 small beds. Some rooms are with private bathrooms and others in shared bathrooms. Cleanliness, security, serenity and affordability have made our guests come back again and again. With the ideal location, visitors arriving or departing late in the night or early morning have always found our place very ideal. It is also a great location for guests on transit to Tanzania since the shuttle buses to Tanzania pick guests from our house on the way without having to go to the city center to board. We have business connections with shuttle buses like Davanu shuttle, Marangu shuttles Jamii shuttle, Riverside shuttle, Impala shuttle, Destination and rainbow among others. For those on long hours of waiting to connect a flight, we offer great deals on day room either as a package with pick up and drop off the airport and lunch or just on accommodation only. We are a great place to meet other young travelers and the "young at heart", backpackers and mid range travelers. ... more   less
