Good prices, good simple food, clean rooms, relaxing garden, but above all peaceful and friendly reception in a town that is difficult and sometime dangerous. I'll be back next time I visit my friends in Nairobi.

“The rooms on second floor are quieter than the others as they are way above and helps avoid the noise from the neighborhood”

“All rooms are practically furnished and luckely with mosquitonets as there where many mosquitos. All rooms with attached bathroom an hot water. As far as I know there are no AC availiable. And also not nessesary as nights in Nairobi are still comfortable temperature wise... Internet connection on the 2nd floor better then on 1st floor. Rooms to the garden side are a bit lounder then rooms towards the garden. Desk is very helpful and patiant. i like the mixture of guests as it is not a total posh "muznugu place".”
