Mvuli is a cozy, homely yet very executive hotel where you feel right at home and the ambience makes you forget you are in the busy CBD. I love the food, service and staff... Great place to be in...

Though very small in size it is a good deal since it is 8 minutes walk to nyayo stadium and has reliable focus cabs right outside. It costs Kshs1000 to the airport and it takes 30 minutes to get there but can be done in 15 if it is a late night flight. There is reliable internet for Ksh 100...

This guest house is delightful. Yes, the rooms are quite small and the dinner menu is a little limited, but the beds are comfy, the shower is hot and the staff are all so polite, friendly and welcoming. I feel I should point out that this is not a "western 5*" hotel... If that's what you want, go elsewhere, but...

Since most flights into Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta Airport from Europe arrive in the evening, most vacationing travelers need to find a convenient, one night place to lay their weary heads before continuing on to Indian Ocean or game park resort destinations. Mvuli House, which bills itself as a "limited service economy hotel" has the feel of a B and B,...

Thank you for staying with us and the positive review. We have noted your concern about Room 101. We're currently carrying out a phased renovation of the Hotel, and in the next couple of months, all our rooms will have double glazed windows to reduce the noise. Thank you once more.

I reserved a twin and a triple room on hotel.info but, on arrival, the hotel said they had no details of the booking, for which I had a 'booking confirmation', and had no triple room available.

We were 6 friends who chose this location because it's near the necessary amenities that one would need when coming into Nairobi for a short business visit. The guest room is small and intimate but there is additional verandah seating that made it pleasant for an outdoor meeting session. The rooms were adequate in size though there are no frills....

Clean hotel with friendly staff. The food was satisfactory. Shared a twin room and room was big enough for the two of us. I didn't enjoy the hot shower as the flow was not consistent and at one point the water became cold. The lack of a conference room was my low mark for the hotel as we had to...
