Shalom House is a peaceful place to stay in Nairobi, with all the confort, wi-fi, different kind of restaurant Africa, Italian and international food. The position is a bit outside the town, but near shopping center and turistic place.

I've just returned from another great experience at Shalom Guest House. I lead a medical mission trip each summer. We always stay at Shalom- the staff and accommodations are perfect for our humanitarian team. This trip was with one other friend and we decided to stay at Shalom. The rooms are clean and comfortable, each with an en suite bathroom....

The Shalom House is definately a guesthouse to consider when you want a save and quite place to stay for a couple of days. It isn't a luxery hotel, but that does apply to the price per night too. It is a great place to stay for a few days prior to or after a Safari or a visit to...

When we turned of the main road towards Shalom House, I was disappointed but the disappointment was short lived, once we entered the gates, the place looked misplaced. Shalom House is beautiful, the staff are pleasant to deal with, trust able and efficient. The room I stayed in was not perfect but for a guest house, I found it to...

Make no mistake about it, Shalom place is a modest hostel type accommodation. But for my needs it was perfect!

Stayed at the Shalom House prior to a Safari. The staff were all very pleasant and friendly. The facility is surrounded by a tall fence and guarded entrance. We were with a reasonably large group that arrived all hours of the night - no one had significant issues with getting into their rooms. The rooms were definitely modest, generally clean....

“The rooms on second floor are quieter than the others as they are way above and helps avoid the noise from the neighborhood”
  • Beautiful Garden for Outdoors enjoyment

“All rooms are practically furnished and luckely with mosquitonets as there where many mosquitos. All rooms with attached bathroom an hot water. As far as I know there are no AC availiable. And also not nessesary as nights in Nairobi are still comfortable temperature wise... Internet connection on the 2nd floor better then on 1st floor. Rooms to the garden side are a bit lounder then rooms towards the garden. Desk is very helpful and patiant. i like the mixture of guests as it is not a total posh "muznugu place".”
