I Arrived in Nairobi on a last minute business trip, and did not have time to arrange accommodation, I arrived at reception, and met Beatrice the General Manager. She arranged a room for me at a reasonable rate. The Room was very spacious and had all the amenities on could need, including a fire place for the cold winter night. The rate included a full breakfast and this was also excellent. Over all it is a great place to stay in a quite neighborhood of Nairobi. And with the new southern bypass is easily accessible.

Stayed: July 2017

A small group of us rented several of the cottages and stayed for almost a week. It was incredibly peaceful, great staff and great food. The rooms are very large with modern design. We really enjoyed how quiet and safe the place was as well as the large tented patio.

I stayed for three nights in Lodge 6 which was enormous and very clean. The facilities were great and all the staff were very attentive, nothing was too much trouble! I only ate breakfast in the restaurant which was cooked to order. I felt very safe as they give you a phone to call the Duty Manager if you need anything and the security was not intrusive.
Lodge 6 overlooks the small lake in the beautiful and very well kept gardens, there are a few cows grazing in the distance with amazing birds, who were quite noisy but very calming given the hustle and bustle of Nairobi. I got to see two Augur Buzzards circling overhead too.
Karen Lodge is close to the Giraffe Centre, National Park and the new Karen Mall (didn't have time to visit unfortunately as it was a business trip). I'll be back!!!

Room Tip: Lodges 5 and 6 overlook the lake

I was here 10 day's in a nice decorated hous number one. clean when I came and daily a perfect house when I came home.
A wood fire in the middle of the room and a styl of Afrika funiture. The kitchen was a fine one and they made it fresh. Because it was near a new HUB ( they called so) were a great amout of little fine shops were and also a big carrefour. and coffee places.
It's laying in the woud and in the morning sitting on the terras just when the sun is coming the birds are singing. then I found my self in the afrikan dream.

Karen country lodge got taxi drivers who know to bring you save to the city. That was a fine service because the way of driving is quite different than the Netherlands were i come from.

They have a round table where new guest can join easy to talk with another guests It's special you meet new people and made new contact's and nice talks and get informed how live is in Nairobi.

Dear team thans for your care, until I come again. when i visit my friend again

We loved staying at Karen Country Lodge in January. It is a beautiful and quiet spot in the craziness that is Nairobi. We overlooked the little pond, and the sun shined in each morning. The bathrooms are HUGE and the tub in the middle is a great way to relax. Can't wait to return someday!

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the pond
