I stayed at Mvuli House because the place I had booked earlier turned out to be a con (Jupiter Guest House). I nonetheless stayed at Mvuli for a while before moving on to a residential apartment.
The problem with Mvuli is one that plagues a lot of hotels in Nairobi that are at 3-star and below - poor service. It almost seems like one is doing the staff a favor by being there, they lack the capability to follow up on issues raised and the don't understand how to resolve problems once and for all and avoid repetitions.
The food is bland - two star - so look for alternatives of which there are many.
The beds are ok for a low-rated place and the showers work.
The location is very convenient but gets bad in the mornings and evenings as Langata Road is a major thoroughfare and gets clogged at peak traffic hours - so plan your trips wisely.
With internet access so ubiquitous in Nairobi these days, it's surprising that they can't get theirs to work most of the time. This can be a major drag more so since they also do not have a business cafe that would allow one to use say, desktops to find information, directions or send email.
Finally, Mvuli works as a short term stay 1-2 days and no longer due to inconsistent service levels and the lack of surrounding amenities such as good restaurants.
