“A safe and relaxing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

i visited shalom house for the first time in 2001...it was under construction!
I flew back to Nairobi in 2004 and stayed there for 3 weeks with my husband. it's a comfortable place, hot water ,nice and clean single, double or multiple rooms. The conforts of the hotels at a cheaper price!
People are kind and open to help you to set up your daily schedule in Nairobi.Shalom house is the right place to stay if you don't want to live the stress of the downtown. There is a fabulous garden, perfect also for families with children. it's a safe place with guardians,there are two restaurants and a warm atmosphere.
we fly to nairobi almost every year and we always choose to stay in Shalom House.

I was in shalom house for long periods since 2006 (up to sept 2011). it is a safe and welcoming place. the staff is friendly, discreet and available to meet your every need. shalom house has a wireless connection and a very efficient taxi service, meeting spaces and a very quiet garden. and the cuisine at "baraza café" is very good! I would not go anywhere else!

Shalom House is a beautiful center located along Ngong Road, not too far from city center (which can be reached by bus).
It is run by an African Comunity involved in many projects supporting children in need in Nairobi.
Rooms are simple, with basic comforts (hot water and self contained) and very clean.
Included in the compound there are two restaurants: the local Baraza Cafe which serves a very good breakfast and local meals and an Italian Pizzeria.
The garden is cozy and relaxing.
Outside Shalom House you can find many buses to city center, a short walk will guide you to Nakumat Junction Mall and there are many artisans shops along the road.
