It's a very nice place.. Enjoyed their food and their hospitality.. Tho wi-fi signal is weak for rooms on the top floors. If I am in Nairobi again... I will look no further for accommodation as it is relatively close to JKIA as well as Nakumati Mega for shopping!!!

I was traveling on to Maasai Mara in the morning and so this hotel was booked for me by the travel agent. It was quite close to the airport. My room was small, but clean and comfortable, with a nice shower and complimentary toiletries. The restaurant was open quite late, which was good, since I got in after 10:00pm and...

The rooms are small but other facilities are very good. The quality of staff is very high. The chefs were creative in preparing vegetarian food once the tips were given. The location is excellent. Facility for a safe morning walk due to the proximity to Nyayo Stadium.

It was a great stay for us. Reasonably priced, good staff n pls try spicy chicken wings served at the breakfast Buffet as well as in their dining menu. We loved everything there. The room was good and staff was very responsive as well.

If you are only staying overnight in Nairobi, this hotel is not a bad option. The restaurant is good and the service was fine. The rooms are very small and the bathroom needed painting, but we felt safe. The area around the hotel was not the greatest so we chose to come and go by taxi and did not walk...

We used this hotel when we had to spend the night in Nairobi after arriving one evening and leaving the next morning. The traffic in Nairobi (as we learned when we spent time in town later) can be bumper to bumper forever. This hotel is not the closest to the airport but it was the first one I found that...

After my last visit to the Guest House I thought I would give it another chance. It must have new management and some new staff what a transformation. Worth the visti especially prior to going to airport. Food good, staff excellent rooms good.

I stayed at Mvuli House because the place I had booked earlier turned out to be a con (Jupiter Guest House). I nonetheless stayed at Mvuli for a while before moving on to a residential apartment. The problem with Mvuli is one that plagues a lot of hotels in Nairobi that are at 3-star and below - poor service. It...
