We spent our Christmas Day at Karen Inn with family (11 Adults and 12 children) and loved everything about it. Lunch was served at the terrace which overlooks a beautifully Manicured garden. The kids had space to run around and play. The food was great. The service was very good and the manager Grace was around to confirm that we...

I had previously stayed at Karen Inn and Suites and had back then found the place very comfortable and fairly priced. That all changed for this second visit where I ended up leaving after only one night as I felt really poorly treated. Let me explain. Before going to Karen Inn and Suites, I checked online for prices via booking.com....

We had planned a night away to celebrate my mum's birthday. They provided all that we had asked for including a cake and flowers. The place is quiet and lovely and the staff is pleasant. The rooms are comfortable and the Wi-fi works well. I would definitely recommend Karen Inn and Suites for someone who is looking for comfort away...

We arrived very late in the evening and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We went directly into our room after a quick 5 minute check-in, which was very clean and well appointed. It's not at all luxurious but it has a nice homely feel. Breakfast was basic but sufficient and the garden although only small, was beautiful and...

This hotel was great value for the money. It was not too far from the airport but tucked away from some of the hustle and bustle of the traffic. It's very close to the Karen museum and the Karen coffee house. Clean rooms, good food and friendly staff. I would definitely stay here again!

We arrived in the very early (very dark) hours of the morning. Signage for the property is not great… it took us (and the taxi driver) a few attempts to find the place. Eventually the eskari (guard) at the gates of World Vision directed us in the right direction. This is a charming old colonial house now run as a...

The Karen Inn & Suites are a nice place to stay if you'll be spending time in the Karen area around Nairobi. The inn is conveniently located in a safe compound. The grounds surrounding the inn are limited but there is a small outdoor area where you can read or take meals. The rooms are simple but sufficient and very...

The Karen Inn and Suites is not a 4 star hotel by far, but it is a fantastic value for your money in a city where everything seems massively overpriced. It's located in a safe neighborhood outside the bustle of the city and seems like a great, but simple, place to stay. We stayed there for about 9 days while...

If you are planning on visiting the national park, the giraffe centre or the elephant orphanage, it is a great location. The grounds are beautiful, and my room was spacious and comfortable, my shower had its own hot water heater so hot water was never an issue. The staff were outstanding! They welcomed you and went out of their way...
