Chester House Apartments are located in the city centre of Nairobi – good location with Uluru and Central Parks just a minutes walk away, and restaurants and shops aplenty nearby. The apartments are roomy, with separate lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. The kitchen includes a range of utensils so you can cook up a storm if you want. The place was in decent condition and kept very clean.
Just a couple of negatives: the TV looks like it is from the 1980’s! Given this is over $100 AU per night, it really should have better. The WIFI was great, but it dropped out every now and then – this might be more of a problem with internet access in Kenya than with Chester House in particular, but it was frustrating.
But the biggest problem was the neighbours! There is a nightclub right next door, that literally goes all night, closing up around 5am, at which time the deep-bass music finally stops only to be replaced by the hordes of drunken party goers spilling out into the street! I was on the 8th floor and the noise was still unbearable – I believe it is even worse if you are lower. If you are a light sleeper like me, this is a real problem, and unfortunately one that the management at Chester House probably cannot do anything about.
So the room was decent, but there were a few problems that I would not expect from an accommodation in this price range. Not really value for money...
