Love to stay here when I travel to Nairobi. Clean, peaceful and nice. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The staff are very nice and accommodating. The food that is served in the dinning room is wonderful. They have a tea in the afternoon that is delightful! Can't say enough good things about Gracehouse, love it!!

This is a good location, next door to YaYa Mall. The staff are helpful and friendly although when I arrived late there were not helpful with food options. It feels very safe and you have no worries walking around the neighbourhood during the day, I would not recommend doing so at night. I had no hot water, Wifi was not...

Came in late from Kenyatta and a friend took me to this place. Once you get over your American response to sharing a common area (sitting room, not baths - these are private) with other rooms on your floor, GraceHouse is Ok. Free extremely slow or nonexistent wifi. Rooms at around $66. Ok for a non fussy traveler. Really clean....

A pleasant stay in mid May while on a trip to Nairobi with a group. The staff was very courteous and the grounds and rooms were well kept and clean. On my first night there was in issue with the toilet and someone came up right away to fix it. The bed in my room was a bit firm for...

The Gracehouse was good for a quick overnight in Nairobi before heading out, and then a day-room on the way back home. Rooms were clean if not a bit sparse, showers had instant hot(ish) water heaters, and breakfast offered a surprising variety.

Our most recent stay was in November of 2014. I cannot say enough great things about the Gracehouse. The staff are very welcoming and accommodating. The grounds are safe and very well protected. The on-site breakfast and dinners were delicious and the afternoon tea/coffee and snacks were delightful. The beds were comfortable; supplied with mosquito netting. Rooms are clean and...

Have been here for a number of meetings. The hotel is located near the bus stage at yaya centre. If driving the entrance is on Chania road and if walking there is a gate u can use on Ring road, Kilimani. One can visit Yaya Centre and Nakumatt prestige as they are nearby. The hotel has lots of green around...

Location, price, staff and room size make this small hotel a good find. The staff could not have been more helpful. True, the room was a little tired, but it was large and had everything needed in it. Free wifi another bonus, as was the sitting room outside the door with coffee and tea-making facilities, and the free morning and...

This hotel is surprisingly cheap for Nairobi, yet it includes a free breakfast which could keep you going for hours! Many rooms have twin beds for a group where people are willing to share, the price is amazingly low. As others have commented, it is well placed next to the Yaya centre, with a back path leading to it. It...

The hotel is very basic but the courtesy and friendliness of the staff is outstanding. They are helpful and very accomodating. Rooms are modest but are kept exceptionally clean. Wi-fi decent. Another advantage is the location right next to Yaya shopping mall so even ifyou are not mobile you can dash to the shops for whatever necessities you need. Best...
