“Sleeps 4, bathes 2”
Reviewed August 14, 2010

Stayed here during a family wedding. The accommodation is very good and feels very secure. If 4 of you are staying in the apartment, there isnt enough hot water to bathe more than 2, which was annoying. Management have locked the heating swith so you cant change it.

Also I didnt like the beds, which were hard and uncomfortable.

The WEP key given to us for Internet access didnt work on a single computer we had.

Lighting in rooms was also quite poor.

Everything else was perfect. apartments are clean, staff friendly and nothing was stolen.

Reviewed September 5, 2009

I had to stay in Nairobi for business for long periods (3 - 6 months) between 2001 to 2006. Serviced apartments were the best solution for me. I don't think there is any other serviced apartment in the city that gives one so much of a home feeling. It all starts with the management, professional and very warm at the same time. They really helped me find my way in this new city the first time there. I felt safe and taken care of. The Gables is an oasis of peace in this city. The drawback is that one feels space has been super-optimized a bit. Common garden areas are small, living room too and the swimming pool is more a decorative pond than a real swimming pool. In any case, for a worry-free stay in Nairobi this is definitely the place to come.
