“Stay far away from this place!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Nothing is like it looks like. It's a B&B created over a Park and supermarket all but nice. The rooms are really basic. The water on the shower is not warm but, as the manager said, if you reduce the water rate, it will be warmer!!!
Awful experience with taxi suggested by the hotel.
Never ever again!

There were 10 of us that stayed at the Nest hotel as we were passing through Nairobi on our way to Eldoret. We enjoyed the hotel so much the first time, that we returned on our way home too. It was quick access to the airport and very secure, friendly and comfortable.
The staff at the Nest were very informative on activities in the area, cooking us a fabulous breakfast, even before our early morning flight on our first visit.
On our second visit, our luggage was stored securely and we were treated like family as all our excursion requests were fulfilled. The rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. The shower was wonderful and it was in a quiet area for a good nights`rest. Thank you so much to all the staff at `the Nest`, especially Kelvin who played so many roles as chef, pizza delivery host, excursion and airport transportation planner, and new friend. Also, Leah, along with all the staff who made our visit memorable.

Room Tip: The beds are either double size or single, so be prepared to share a bed, sleep in a single bed, or...

The rooms are spacious and with all the facilities provided I enjoyed my short stay. Cleanliness is most important and at The Nest you need not worry about that your room is daily cleaned to a five star standard which was excellent. The breakfast is provided and every morning I had a choice which I enjoyed too not forgetting the receptionists who went out of their way to make sure all was in order.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors are quieter
