The Khweza is a very positive surprise in the otherwise quite difficult and often disappointing hotel market of Nairobi. The rooms are big and clean, the staff is very friendly and the shower has the hot water that is promised. And yes, there are mosquito nets, without holes.
The area of Ngara is a 15 minute walking distance from town, matatus run shuttle to town some 3 minutes away from the hotel. A taxi to town should cost some 400 KSh. The area is perhaps not the charmiest around, but safe during day time for anyone. Just look like you know where you're heading and you won't be bothered! Although the street outside (Ngara Road) is one of the more restless ones at night, safety at the Khweza is good.
Minus points for noisiness: the windows are non-isolated and both traffic and other noises during the night will request the light sleeper to bring a pair of earplugs.
To sum it up, the Khweza is definitely the best value for the money I've had in Nairobi, out of the five hotels I've tried out in the budget/medium category throughout the last two years. Big bonus for the nice roof top terrace.
