Best place to be in Nairobi! Good location, connection very quick to the relevant motorways, quiet place and I always feel very safe there. Best staff ever , they let you feel home, and very nice food in the restaurant.

I've just returned from another great experience at Shalom Guest House. I lead a medical mission trip each summer. We always stay at Shalom- the staff and accommodations are perfect for our humanitarian team. This trip was with one other friend and we decided to stay at Shalom. The rooms are clean and comfortable, each with an en suite bathroom.... More

The Shalom House is definately a guesthouse to consider when you want a save and quite place to stay for a couple of days. It isn't a luxery hotel, but that does apply to the price per night too. It is a great place to stay for a few days prior to or after a Safari or a visit to... More

When we turned of the main road towards Shalom House, I was disappointed but the disappointment was short lived, once we entered the gates, the place looked misplaced. Shalom House is beautiful, the staff are pleasant to deal with, trust able and efficient. The room I stayed in was not perfect but for a guest house, I found it to... More

Make no mistake about it, Shalom place is a modest hostel type accommodation. But for my needs it was perfect! Doing charity work at Cheryl's Children Home was a quick 5 minute walk away, and all the sights in Nairobi that I wanted to see were only a 15-20 minute drive from Shalom,The guest house is safe, clean, includes breakfast,...

Stayed at the Shalom House prior to a Safari. The staff were all very pleasant and friendly. The facility is surrounded by a tall fence and guarded entrance. We were with a reasonably large group that arrived all hours of the night - no one had significant issues with getting into their rooms. The rooms were definitely modest, generally clean.... More

I stayed here for a few nights after winding down from being on a road trip and exploring Africa. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. Great location, walking distance to the shopping mall. Set in secure, peaceful grounds where you can watch the many bird life.

my wife and I and some friends recently stayed at Shalom House prior to doing a safari trip. It's a great deal for the price, and has two onsite restaurants to boot.

Shalom House provide hostel type accommodation for travellers. It is affordable, free wifi, good food in dinning room. Don't expect much in the room. It is very basic. 10 minutes walk to nearby "Junction" shopping mall. Could be dangerous to walk outside after dark. Good for mountain climbers in Tanzania, or safari trips.
