“Good value for money compared to a Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

I have stayed at Eldon Villas a number of times and our company use it for other guests. The location is great for us and it isn't too far out of the centre. The Junction Mall is a great asset being 5 mins away. Being apartments there is no reataurant, but the junction is close and you get a whole apartment to yourself. So good value for money. Staff are friendly, rooms are clean. Great discounts for longer stays.

We stayed at The Eldon Villas in Dec 2011 and were a party of four. The critical thing to know about The Eldon Villas is that it is made up of two very different levels of facility. One section is classed as economy and the other is described as luxury. Ultimately we ended up staying in both facilities and so I can comment on both. The economy can only accomodate three people as it has a singe bed in a tiny room and a barely double bed in a slightly larger room. We were therefore very cramped. The hotel was fully aware we would be uncomfortable but accepted the booking knowing there was no possibility it could suit us. The apartment was filthy, the showers only dribbled water and the WC was cramped. Taps and other fittings were loose. Furniture was dirty and greasy and bedding smelled of the the history of previous occupants. The apartment had been so poorly cleaned I even found money and valuables from previous guests. The management were quick to relieve me of this. I complained persistently. This was our holiday and was being ruined. The management offered a move to the better luxury apartments which you see on their website. We were given no discount or other reparation. We accepted the opportunity to move although as we had to pay the extra it cut deep into our finances and forced us to cut our holiday short. The delux apartments are signifantly larger and cleaner but again had major problems. Throughout our stay there was building work in place. Loud banging commenced every morning. Cement and sand was being carried through the building all the time. We were on the top floor which is the sixth floor and the lifts have not yet been installed so it was quite an effort managing the stairs and negotiating our way past the builders. The apartment had large windows which rattled and shook. Some were broken and cracked and if I had had a child with me I would have been in absolute fear of this hazard as the remaining pieces were only hanging on. Wiring stuck out of walls and door handles came off in your hand. Some aspects of repair were truly hazardous. One night we were aware that armed police were called to the building due to some sort of incident. Don’t waste your time and money. Go elsewhere. Three of us were born and raised in Nairobi so we understand how services can be but this was truly appalling and we felt very dissatisfied and ripped off. By the way dont be fooled by the pool and gym. The pool was filthy and no one every used the gym...

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter but check that the lift is installed and working! Be sure you know if you...

I have been staying @ Eldon Villas for 9 months in 2011 and was genuinely satisfied. Their furnished apartments offer comfortable and affordable accomodation for shorter or longer stays in Nairobi. My company ended up renting 2-3 apartments most of the time and the amenities ensure that most guest profiles are catered for: Good gym, nice pool area, housekeeping with laundry and next door to best shopping mall in Nairobi.
I would recommend Eldon Villas to anyone visiting Nairobi for more than a week, as it's just like home, away from home.

we were here December with my sister and her family at the beginning all was good but on the same night we checked our apartment was broken into while we were out for dinner. the door was in bits our clothes and belongings all over the place suitcase broken money stolen and other things.the children became hysterical so we checked out that very night to follow up the matter the next day since it was late in the night
The worst part is that the management offered no help at all in fact she was completely out of reach Sherine she was called i believe.we tried to get back our money over 180000Kes since we dint spend the night but they just disappeared leaving us to deal with the receptionist who was in her turn utterly clueless....

its looks pretty and all that but trust me that place is not all that......there are thieves in there

Stayed here in February 2012 and really enjoyed my stay there. Staff very friendly and helpful. Apartment was very clean and well mainitained with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Although our apartment was on the busy road end, there wasn't that much noise coming from it to cause any problems. If you are looking for clean and reasonably priced accommodation in Nairobi then I would recommend Eldon Villas.

Excellent accommodation. Very clean, well maintained, great WIFI. It may be a little noisy, but you are staying on one of the busiest roads in Nairobi. Walking distance to Junction, and a great Bistro next door. I could not fault this place

Room Tip: All the rooms at the front were great. I stayed in 41, which I would highly recommend.

Stayed in Nairobi many times this was the worst apartment. Changed room 3 times. No sound insulation on ngong road apartments. Ones at back are better but basic will go back to natural oak a bit more cost but worth it.
