An amazing place to stay. Alan has built this up over 20+ years, and it is packed, top to bottom and in every bedroom, with arts, crafts and antiquities from all over Africa. Every room is different, and all are immensely stylish. It has featured in magazines worldwide, and for a good reason. Whilst not budget priced, by Nairobi standards (and especially considering its unique style) it is reasonable value. Dinner was excellent both times we stayed there. The location is unbeatable - just 15 minutes easy drive from the airport, it sits on a ridge overlooking the National Park, with glorious views. If you want something unique, comfortable, relaxing, fascinating and 100% different from almost any other hotel/B&B, stay here.
