The lobby, dining and breakfast room are small but cosy. Hotel is situated next to a busy and noisy road, but inside it is still silent. We had a triple room at the backside of the hotel. Maybe the rooms at the side of the road are noisy. The room was clean and service was good. No airco in the...

A great little budget hotel. The hotel is not in the best part of town, nor is it safe to walk out at night in that area. However, the hotel is secure and has good security. It is situated on a roundabout so traffic noise can be a bit intrusive, hence I opted for a top floor room. Sadly this...

The location of this hotel is in a bad part of Nairobi. The taxi driver warned us when we arrived to stay in the hotel when it gets dark. Sometimes you get dropped by the taxi on the other side of the roundabout wish forces you to cross a very dangerous street. They are very bad at correspondence. They tried...

When we arrived there was a lot of traffic on the roundabout, this meant that we got dropped off the other side of the roundabout. Not the hotel's fault but it's not a great location to get dropped off at to start with. Reception were pretty rude, not the usual African smiles we'd been used to for the past 2...

The Kahama is a lovely hotel. All the staff are very friendly, the rooms spacious and the food in the restaurant delicious. I am staying here for one week, and I have been very impressed. I have stayed in luxury hotels before, and whilst this isn't one (and doesn't claim to be), there are little luxury touches which make the...

Yes, it is convenietly located near CBD but the in order to get there you must walk right past some not so good streets. If you opt for a taxi,you're likely to get stuck on traffic for longer than your patience lasts, because there is no direct way to the CBD and the drive includes a u-turn somewhere further. Also...
