I visited the coffee shop with some local friends for lunch today. The setting was lovely and chilled and made me feel as though I was at the coast. The service was very good and the food was delicious. It's definitely worth a visit and it looked like a great place to stay too.

Beautiful and extremly cozy rooms. Swahili architecture that made our stay in this hotel very memorable. Service is great, staff is friendly, and management is extremely professional. Food at the restaurant was great! (though it takes a bit too long for the food to arrive). Location is great, a quite and lovely small road right in the heart of Westlands....

Where to even begin....the coastal theme is so beautiful. It actually feels like a coastal resort in the middle of a not so coastal city :-) Service is excellent, kitchen is modern and perfectly fitted. My stay was short but very very pleasant. I would go back any time

We spent one lovely week at the King Post with a group of 20 people. The hospitality, service and rooms are all excellent, everyone had a great time there. We also had dinners at the Chumba Cafe and the food was good as well as the service. Overall, I would recommend this establishment to everyone who seeks a comfortable, warm...

I was very pleased with my stay. Rooms were nice and comfortable and service excellent. I enjoyed my breakfast and meals at the restaurant on the compound too. I only wished that the pool had been working as I had hoped to use it. Thank you for a lovely stay. Diana

I have stayed at The King's Post many times in the past. I always choose the studio apartment because they are quite spacious and have great décor.

King's Post is beautifully decorated in the Swahili Coast stylings of Lamu and Zanzibar. Traditional beds, colorful lanterns, vast rugs, and sophisticated cushions make this a very comfortable and fun place to stay. This place is ideal for those needing more than 3-4 nights as it comes with a kitchen including full refrigerator, stove, hot water heater, and more. Easy...

I very much liked the Swahili Style of the compound and the laid-back feeling. The appartments are very clean and the equipment/furniture is well maintained and of good quality. Staff is really friendly. I especially enjoyed the in-house café bar and restaurant.

Thank Johannes A
