I have now stayed at Lake View Studios four different times. I am going back, its a lovely location, only KShs 500 from Westlands by Taxi, regular local buses for 40 bob.

Staff are very friendly, very helpful, doing their best to make your stay comfortable.
Very clean and tidy accommodation.

We welcome this feedback from one of our regular guests! Yes indeed, Lake View Studios are located in one of the most beautiful, safe and secure residential neighbourhoods of Nairobi. Just as you are many other visitors coming to Nairobi are looking for affordability, high standards, convenience and security - just what we are offering at Lake View Studios.

See you again soon!

A very good value set of 6 studio apartments. I recommend Magadi (all rooms are named after Kenyan lakes), @ KShs 4000/day. Intermittent Internet, but all rooms come with self-contained kitchen. No prepared food available, but the Lake View Studios are literally behind the Zen Garden Restaurant. The gated Lake View neighbourhood provides a green safe running location, which is useful as the guesthouse itself has no recreational facilities. Unfortunately, there is no lake side access for swimming! You need to know a local with a lakeside house to do that! The local Havana taxi company (0712506265) provides good service to this location.

Room Tip: The smaller rooms are cramped, so worth paying the extra KShs 1000-2000 for a larger room. Magadi is my favourite, and suffers less from noise from adjacent guests, which can be a problem as it is not a purpose-built hotel with soundproofing, but an adapted private residence.

We appreciate your many stays at Lake View. Your objective review means a lot. Access to our fiber optic Internet is sometimes disrupted when fiber cables are interfered with or cut during civil works around the City or in the Westlands area. To maintain serene surroundings and especially a quiet and sleep-conducive environment, Lake View Studios has a zero tolerance noise policy which is outlined on our website under "policies". We have instructed our Staff to be more rigorous in dealing with noise. Just a footnote on the smaller studios – Baringo, Bogoria and Elementeita - these have actually been the most popular since we opened.
