I stayed here 2 nights and I could not have been pampered more. The rooms are large with 10 ft ceilings, and each decorated in a style. My room for the stay was the safari room, a lovely room at the end of hall, facing east as the sun was no where in sight when I arrived at 4. The...

We stayed at House of Wayne on the way to and from safaris on the Serengeti. Both were very comfortable. Amo was particularly helpful and went out of her way to make local arrangements for us. An excellent choice for Nairobi!

We spent one night here and in this 8 hour stay before flying to the Mara. The staff was very good and the food was also very good at breakfast. Later in this trip we spent 2.5 hours here while travelling from the Kenyan coast before flying out. Dinner was again very good. If I am in Nairobi again I...

We stayed in House of Waine for one night during a transfer between Nairobi and Kenya safari locations. The staff was welcoming and kind. The rooms were huge (as were the bathrooms) and had unique local decor. We enjoyed the safari room. Snacks (nuts, chips, cookies) and water were welcome in our room, as was the strong wi-fi and water...

On a previous trip to Kenya, we fell in love with Giraffe Manor and wanted to stay there again but it was fully booked with the exception of one night. Therefore, we ended up at House of Waine and we were very pleased. Giraffe Manor has expanded since our last visit there so the quaintness of GM and the awesome...

Great hotel, excellent service! Wifi is very strong, large rooms, quiet and safe. Close enough to Nairobi to be able to miss the traffic. Beautiful gardens and settings. The rates are very competitive. Close to Nairobi National Park, giraffe centre and the Elephant Sanctuary. New shopping mall within 6 kms

I was here for two nights. The staff are very attentive and friendly. The ambiance is great, felt like I was home but with all the comforts of a 5 star hotel. Generally the whole place is very quiet and serene, with a beautiful garden for relaxing. Perfect for honeymooners and couples. The only thing I didn't like was the...

I was only here for an afternoon and an overnight. The limited interaction I had with the staff was very nice. They were very accommodating.

Excellent base in Nairobi. Felt totally safe. Very clean and comfortable rooms with spacious immaculate bathrooms. Plenty of towels and hot water. The staff were most attentive and helpful. We were served food very late at night, and although we were the only ones in the restaurant, we felt totally relaxed and ate well.
