If you are traveling to Kenya, and visiting sites like the nearby Elephant orphanage, this is the place to stay or at least stop by for a meal and drink. The hotel was originally built as a mansion by a former post-colonial intelligence chief, and it remains one of the most magnificent old world-style buildings in sub-Saharan Africa. Hand-carved walls... More

I do charity work in Kenya and have stayed in many homes and top hotels in the Nairobi area over the past four years. Sovereign Suites is now by far my favorite. I slept there thirteen dreamy nights in May 2015; I took a chance and booked in advance at a great discount. Am I ever glad that I did!... More

This hotel looks impressive from the outside and despite being a relatively modern building is in an old colonial style. The wood paneling inside give it a warm and old world feel which is pleasing. Nice gardens and balcony's which are good for relaxing and taking in some clean air. The rooms are comfortable and clean. However there are three... More

The price is great and the hotel is beautiful, the only problem was I slept on a box spring, rather didn't sleep. Wifi didn't work in the room, only the lobby. We were to have breakfast early in the morning because of a needed 7am departure. We just request coffee and fruit. We were told the night before when we... More

If you're looking for a reasonably priced property with a lot of history, Sovereign Suites is a good suggestion. It is a ways out of the city center, though worth the drive. I had a team of colleagues traveling with me and was responsible for their travel plans. We checked in and asked the clerk if we could please have... More

I pass by Sovereign Suites quite often and it has always intrigued. Looks so grand from outside so I have always wanted to visit. I finally got a chance to visit the place for an event on 10th January. The llok and feel of the place failed to meet my expectations. It had this "deserted" look. The pool for example... More

Sovereign Suites, Limuru is a Gorgeous place. Unfortunately, that's the only good thing I have to say about it. Never have I ever seen or received such horrible service. My darling friend just had her gorgeous wedding there this past weekend. All reservations and confirmation for the premises, rooms etc were done months in advance. The bride and groom made... More
