Karura House
Ranked #50 of 287 Nairobi B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 27, 2013

The Karura house makes you feel at home in Nairobi with a full breakfast in the morning, snacks, tea, and a delicious dinner with greens from their gardens. The room was comfortable and offered a warm bath. The UN Complex is only a 20 minute walk away, or a 5-10 minute taxi ride. The family is wonderful, accommodating, and great company. I thoroughly recommend staying here for business trips.

Stayed: August 2013, traveled on business

A very welcoming place that will make you feel like home. Great breakfast made just for you. Beautiful and peaceful backyard. I wish I had time to enjoy the pool. Ideal if you are on a business trip for a UN conference.
