After a hectic two weeks in South Africa and preparing for our Safari trip to Tanzania etc this was the ideal place to take a deep breath. So quiet, only a limited number of rooms/guests and fantastic staff, it was so refreshing.
The only thing that could be better, would be to be there in the warmer months and you could utilise the pool and outside area, that would make it 110%.
In saying that, the hotwater pressure in the 'Safari' room left a lot to be desired.

Thank you for choosing House of Waine on your recent stay in Nairobi, we are glad you had a good rest with us after Safari.
We appreciate your kind feedback and have noted for action that the water pressure in your room was not sufficient.

We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit.

From the front gate to the reception, the staff were proactive and ahead of their clients. It was nice to be pampered. Great food to boot. In Nairobi, where pools are cold, their was shallow enough to allow the water to warm during the day.

Stayed at House of Waine over Easter weekend 2014 with my family including young infant. Very pleased with service; food was excellent. Only suggestion I would make is more soap and shampoo in the bathrooms please...I stayed in Malaika Suite.

We were all very well catered for including your very young guest. We will be back!!!!

We spent our first day in Kenya at The House of Waine. It is a comfortable facility with large rooms and good food and service. The best aspect of the hotel is the great location which is central to a variety of great activities in Karen (a suburb of Nairobi). We spent a full day exploring the area before heading out on safari.

Our activities included:
1. The Giraffe Center - you must go! We got up close and personal to beautiful Rothschild giraffes. The next time we visit we will hotel at the Giraffe Sanctuary nearby.

2. The Nyumbani Children's Home - we were moved by our visit to this home for abandoned children who are infected with HIV. The impact of this program is overwhelming.

3. The Bead Factory - we got a tour of this awesome facility that employs local, single moms and shopped for jewelry and pottery in their shop.

4. Karen Blixen Home and Museum - I was so excited to see the actual home of the famous writer of "Out of Africa." The tour was ok.

5. The Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage - run, don't walk to this amazing place. We went to the more private and quiet 5pm viewing (you just need to go online and adopt an elephant baby before your trip). It was unbelievable to see the baby elephants running into camp from their day out in the park. So cute! Seeing the babies drink their bottles, play with their keepers and nuzzle into their hay for bed was so moving.

6. Flipflop Shop - do you know what can be made out of recycled Flipflop sandals? Everything! Stop by and try to resist buying something.

Have a great trip!

This must be a piece of heaven in Nairobi. We were upgraded to the suite, and wow, what a stunning room, very large and comfortable with a superb balcony. The hotel also has a large swimming pool and beautiful gardens. It is located in a quiet and pretty area of Nairobi with easy access to local attractions. The restaurant is super with good wines to accompany the excellent food.
We have no hesitation in recommending this quality hotel, the place is spotless and comfortable and the staff friendly, I cannot imagine anyone will ever have a bad experience here. Visit and enjoy!!

Room Tip: I am sure all of the rooms are excellent, the suite is stunning.
