Casa Bella is a beautiful place close to the UN compound in a green residential area bordering with a coffee plantation and lots of trees. If you want to stay away from the noise and pollution of the city center and relax after a working day it is first choise. Indy and his team are great hosts which make your stay as pleasant as possible. Rooms are spacious and well equipped, and the outside area is tastefully arranged. We enjoyed it very much and will definitely come back.

The greatest place to put your guests when they have a meeting in the UN. My guests had a great time a casa bella Suites this is because of the wonderful hospitality. I would definitely recommend everyone to stay at Casa Bella as it is affordable......it is simply HOME. Thank you so much Indy.

Casa Bella suites is conveniently located to the U.N. compound and embassy area and out of the smog and traffic chaos of downtown Nairobi. The suite I stayed in was very large and well appointed with a small kitchen, table and chairs, as well as private bath. This new hotel is very clean with interesting architecture and nice African art and furnishings. Security is very high level. The best part of this hotel is Indy, the owner who brings an outstanding level of hospitality, even by African standards. He is always ready to accommodate guests' needs and you will leave feeling that you've made a new friend.

Room Tip: I had room 6 in the front which had a little bit of noise, would suggest any of the other rooms for...

Indy Choudrie's guesthouse in the beautiful Runda area is a great choice for visitors to UNEP, whose headquarters are just 10 minutes' drive away. Casa Bella's rooms are comfortable, spacious and tastefully furnished, and service is friendly and personalised. Breakfasts are good, and the flexible family-run guesthouse will cater delicious Indian curries or other food at short notice - from fried chicken and roasted corn for two by the pool, to a traditional Indian-Kenyan "Karoga" evening with 20 guests on couches under the banda, all participating in stirring the pot! Indy also organised transport for us to Nairobi National Park. Highly recommended.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review and your kind compliments; it was our pleasure to host you. It's a pity you could not stay on for the "Karoga" night; your colleague will tell you all about it. We had fun but wished you were there to enjoy it with us.

We look forward to hosting you on your next visit.

Warm Regards

Indy

Relaxing environment where you feel completely taken care of. Would come again and recommend to colleagues and friends. Near the UN in Gigiri - Indy and his wife do their utmost to help you see the best of Nairobi.
